Apco Play 42 PPG tandem: new colours

Monday 16 January, 2017

Apco Play 42 mk II

Apco’s Play 42 mk II tandem PPG wing has been revamped with a new top-surface design in a choice of five colours.

The undersurface of the wing, which is designed for professionals as well as recreational pilots, is white, ready to take advertising logos.

Apco describe the Play 42 as a safe and reliable wing that is very easy to launch and land, flies fast (45km/h+) and has great handling and thermalling ability. The MK II saw a wider speed range and lighter brake pressure than the original, and there is also a UL (ultralight) version.

Apco say the durable, smart construction with use of Apco’s double silliconised cloth will result in more flying hours then any other wing, providing the best possible value for money.
