From paragliders like the high performance Extra, which still holds the World Distance Record, and the entry level Prima, a wing that has become a benchmark for many schools and instructors around the world, to the Mayday Emergency System which continues to save pilots on a regular basis.
Inside the 3200 m2 state of the art factory specifically built for APCO’s production requirements. All APCO paragliders, harness, reserve systems and accessories are manufactured on location.
Each paraglider is individually sewn by a skilled machinist, as are the Mayday emergency parachutes and the entire range of APCO harnesses.
Once the paraglider is complete and has passed the various quality control checks it is taken out for a test inflation at one of APCO’s test sites.
