A truly revolutionary glider design – The APCO Hybrid
The Hybrid represents the first wing in this class – a new category of wing in our sport, with unprecedented flying characteristics. This unique design combines a classic double surface profile with a single surface profile, together creating a hybrid profile.
Certified in EN-B category, with all but 2 manoeuvres rated EN-A indicating the real life safety of this unique design!
Putting aside all the hype – this wing must be flown to be believed!
The Hybrid is much more than an exotic wing for special purposes. It offers many advantages over single skin designs and also classic wings in beginner to sport categories. Hybrid wings will become mainstream products within a few years, replacing many classic designs out there. We are proud that APCO is behind such an innovation!
This project has been long and difficult but we are sure the term “Hybrid” will be forever coined into our sport!
This project started off as a concept, an idea that we wanted to explore but never expected what we found! The initial test flights of the first prototype were so impressive that we virtually dropped all other projects in an effort to bring this wing to the market. After 2 years of intense R&D we launched the HYBRID!
The Hybrid must be flown to believe all the “hype” around it, but we promise you it is that SPECIAL! Any pilot that had the chance to try it was amazed and after only 1 flight, convinced that this concept is here to stay!
The Hybrid is light (3 kg), but not designed to be a “Lightweight” wing. the absence of bottom surface on the back part of the wing saves weight but is also what makes it fly in such a special way.
