This Devolpment comes after extensive work by the Apco R&D team. The Hybrid gives you all the best characteristics from the traditional Apco Power Wing 400 & 500 and much more.
It delivers lift greater than the 550 and the exact handling of the 400, while giving a higher performance in glide ratio than any other rectangular wing on the market.
