The intelligent Choice right from the beginning. A purpose designed intermediate beginner wing, with the potential of a real XC machine. Safe and fun best descibe the Santana. Remarkable easy ground handling, launch and flight. In the air, the Santana's real strength is its impressive stability and outstanding performance combined with effortless maneuverability.
The glider is intended for the first-time buyer and will replace Sabra.We are confident that the market response will be positive and enthusiastic.It has been launched in 4 sizes - 25, 28, 30 and 32. The glider derived directly from the Futura, it's shape a reminiscent of the Futura. It has a lower aspect ratio and less ribs, and is enhanced by a new color design, totally different
from the previous APCO tradition, in order to give a fresh, modern look to the entire '98 glider line.
Special attention was paid to ensure that the glider is well adapted to the needs of the beginner / intermediate market, even though its performance exceeds by far the performance of the Sabra. The glider is incredibly easy to launch with very pleasant handling and good stability. It looks and feels like a modern performance glider, with a
solid feel, with very little or no pitch oscillation. The handling is direct and uncomplicated.
Safety fully conforms to Standard Class requirements. We hope that the glider will become the favorite choice of the intermediate customer.
