The Cruiser is Apco’s new PPC wing for heavyweight US-type trikes with leg-steering.
Apco say its conservative tapered planform gives it the perfect blend of performance, speed and handling with ease of use, safety and user-friendiness. In fact, they say, while its performance is better, the Cruiser is just as safe as the Hybrid and is suitable for student use.
Its flying characteristics include a nice short take-off run, slow landing and an easy flare, even with the engine off, and light and agile handling.
A heavy-dutuy wing, the Cruiser has Apco’s double-coated cloth and is robustly reinforced for durability and tough use.
It will be available in three colour schemes in 500 and 550 versions (46.5 and 50.3m2 flat / 38.8 and 42m2 projected).
