Hello Jonathan

I wish you a belated Happy New Year! I was able to fly the Nestra light for two hours last Saturday and I am thrilled!
However, there is one point that could certainly be improved: the magnetic clips on the brakes. They really come off far too quickly!
Apart from that, I can’t find anything negative!

I was lucky enough to be able to test the new F5 from APCO, I was delighted with the ease of inflation it has, with just a little breeze and just by taking a step back it goes up on its own, without having to use the A lines. , the SRS system on the risers makes it much easier to control the wing when it is overhead!
The flight is incredibly stable, the controls are very smooth and with good reaction; It seems incredible, but the Mohawk, as the central rudder that the F5 has has been called, works very well, both when starting and maintaining turns and when exiting them, making this sail very stable and allowing us to evolve safely.
The trimmers are very easy to use and slide very well.
When applying the speed bar at 100% with the trimmers open, the wing remains very safe and firm in its trajectory.
It really is a very safe wing for pilots who want to fly without problems and for students who want to evolve and take that extra step safely.

My first flight was with a prototype of the Apco Nestra at the Dead Sea.
I even flew slightly overloaded and yet the performance of the wing was already impressive.
The Nestra flew remarkably dynamically and efficiently and gave me the feeling of hanging under a higher classified wing.
The steering is absolutely precise and it feels like a razor blade cutting through the air.
I flew with some C and even D category gliders and I felt the Nestra was on par with those gliders.
I’m used to hanging on a few lines from my Enzo, but seeing a similar picture on an En-B wing is truly revolutionary.

First time I went to Apco Aviation manufacture, the Nestra was waiting for me to flying it. Once I opened on the takeoff, I knew that I would fall in love with it. Nestra is a high B class glider, with the best Apco’s Tech. Easy during take off, and even more for flying. The pressure is perfect on the brakes, what I was looking for in a glider to fly hours thermalling – gliding and don’t finish with your arms tired. The Nestra surprised me with the glide ratio, flying parallel to a C glider, but the best is the combination using the speed bar and rear risers control, when you feel the high speed! Nestra is the new future for the High B gliders!
I feel the need, the need for speed!

I have flown this wing and it takes the Apco Cruiser to the next level. Please feel free to call me with any questions.

I saw Bill testing this prototype when I was at x35. The colors were a perfect match for my machine. I didn’t know at the time it was a new design and the only one in the USA. Bill Wallace sold me the wing and boy oh boy, this thing kites like a dream, steering is easier, handles and reacts quick. I live this wing. Thank you to Johnathan Cohn, Bill Wallace and Apco Aviation for selling me this awesomeness!!!
