Hi Jonathan

I am very impressed with the Hybrid, it’s roll stability is unmatched on anything I’ve flown. Perfect for students. There is a pitch oscillation on launch if the student over powers the inflation but it settles down very well.

Rave Review for the Apco Hybrid in German: “Mit dem Hybrid betritt der israelische Hersteller den mittlerweile heiß umkämpften Markt der Singleskins. Halt! Genau genommen ist der Hybrid nur ein halber Singleskin, denn der vordere Teil des Flügels ist herkömmlich mit Ober- und Untersegel ausgestattet …”

Review :: Apco Hybrid :: Thermik Magazine

I flew the F1 in Israel.
First, I was really surprised with the high aspect ratio, the glider looks beautiful and efficient.
Then I inflated it – Amazing. You just think and the glider inflates right away, even with no wind.
I thought for the first flight that I will need many ground handling to manage such a great wing, but instead, I flew immediately, and had fun instantly. The take off is smooth, lift is great and manageability incredible. The flight part is really comfortable, the wing follows your wishes, turns and gives you good feeling of the weather.
Trims and speed bar are so easy to use. I was really impressed with the speed. One of the fastest wings in my opinion. Probably the fastest.
The feeling while flying is safe, clear, and nice. I liked also the landing, huge flare, nice precision.
I loved it.
I will get one as soon as possible!

“I’ve flown them all, and this wing, beats them all, in every aspect…
I could not stop smiling, and didn’t want to land nor return the prototype I had the opportunity to test fly…
Order for mine is in…”

My regular wing is the Hadron XX so thats my comparison mark. I was flying the F1 for less than an hour, but can definitely say its lighter, easier to inflate and to ground handle which is very important to heavy weight and limited space takeoffs. In the air it is very agile and the brakes need significantly less force to have input on the wing which makes you less fatigued in long flights, and really improves the handling and make it very accurate, especially in very steep turns. I really enjoyed flying it and would be happy to continue exploring this wing and take it to its limits.

The Karisma, is great, I have to say the brake travel is a bit short and more responsive  than a regular ENA glider, which is good if the student have good sense of pitch control .

Yeah nice beginner glider with a very thick fabric which good for durability, love the shark nose,nice glide and is fast!

Our Primas are starting to get old but I refuse to teach the first days on anything else…

Is there an APCO AVIATION SPECIAL on buying many Primas at once……hahaha.

Replacing line sets on some of them from 1993 is just not feasible anymore.
And yes we still have them flying and they still work perfectly and have saved many a student with poor skills. To me there is just nothing better and everyday out I find at least one Instructor saying Prima saved that ass because they truly do.

Thank you
