Power Wing MK IV

The Powerwing MK IV, representing a third generation in rectangular wing design (from Apco).  It is a logical evolution of the previous MK II design which was well accepted by PPC pilots. MK IV  has even better handling and stability with a  more coordinated turn and improved rigidity in the air, making flying more comfortable and reasuring. The wing still has the classic rectangular  look and retains all the parameters and features of previous Apco powerwings.
Every pilot stepping aboard will immediately feel at home, having the extra reasuring feeling of MK IV.
Apco's Powerwings are the only PPC wings available on the market today wich is approved by world  aviation standards. Apco's Powerwing was tested by ACPULS (AFNOR) in France, and passed both the  shock and static strenght load tests!
