Lift 450 - history in the making.APCO is proud to make a bold claim - history in the making. We are launching the all new LIFT 450 PPC wing. Reflex profile based, revolutionary concept - to make all past generation PPC wings obsolete.

Do not be misled by the elliptical shape and high performance of the wing - the LIFT 450 is not just a
Lift 450 - history in the making.
high performance wing aimed at ace pilots, it is a wing to replace the majority of today's rectangular PPC wings. The safety and pilot friendly behavior of LIFT450 are on a par with any basic PPC wing you have ever known.

At the start of the millennium PPC scene reached itsLift 450 - history in the making. peak and was a vibrant business in which APCO took an active part. Unfortunately the last dozen years saw a sharp decline in PPC sport, leading to massive closures of PPC manufacturers and complete stagnation in R&D of PPC machines and wings.

Finally we at APCO decided that it was time to break the ice and mark a new era by launching LIFT 450 - a truly revolutionary wing.

Forget about what you knew and flew until now.

No failed launches, no bad landings, no scary feeling of shaky wing, no high pitch noise from engine running at maximum RPM, no tired legs from massive brake forces......  

 

MAIN DESIGN FEATURES:
  • Auto stable reflex profile for unprecedented stability
  • APCO unique HIT valve equipped for added safety in turbulent air
  • Leading edge FLEXON batten equipped (pioneered by APCO) replacing mylar stiffeners (maintenance free, ever-lasting solution ensuring stable performance)
  • Moderate A/R elliptical wing concept for performance unseen in the trade
  • Fool proof launch and landing - straightforward launch on a par or better than the best launching PPC wing - Click for video
  • Performance - L/D never seen before, twice as good compared to common PPC wings - (really amazing!!)
  • Safety as good or better than any rectangular wing
  • Turning ability and handling - agile and precise - unheard of when compared to regular PPC wing
  • Steering forces  - light and comfortable - you will not have shaky weak knees even after long flights
  • Off power/full power - no or very low torque effect
  • Butt hole on tips of trailing edge for debris cleaning
PERFORMANCE:
  • ~30% lower RPM for straight and level flight.
  • Great fuel saving, much reduced cost per hour flight - greener and more cost efficient 
  • Significantly extended engine TBO (Time Between Overhauls) thanks to lower RPM  and less stressful engine work through all stages of flight.  
  • We estimate 25% to 30% of extension in engine TBO - so the wing will pay for itself very fast
  • Option of using a less powerful engine for the same performance with further dramatic cost reduction of the PPC
