Description

Superlight (SLT) Mayday range – Mayday 16 SLT, Mayday 18 SLT, Mayday 20 SLT – The SLT shares the same construction as the LT, but uses PN9 cloth which is the lightest high-tech cloth available.

Apco Aviation started manufacturing the Mayday in 1984, and since then put over 30 000 pieces into service in the Paragliding and Hang Gliding markets. The Mayday has hundreds of life saving deployments to its name, from beginners to world champions.

The Mayday SLT is available in three sizes, with a short or long bridle, for paragliding or hang gliding. Apco also manufactures a wide range of accessories for the Mayday range. This includes front and side mounted external containers for paragliding as well as external containers for hang gliding, split bridles, long bridle extensions, UV-sleeves and much more.

Apco Aviation started manufacturing the Mayday in 1984, and since then put over 40,000 pieces into service in the Paragliding and Hang Gliding markets. The Mayday has hundreds of life saving deployments to its name, from beginners to world champions ( Read letters from saved pilots).

The time proven classic DHV certified Mayday line from APCO has undergone an intensive diet.
In line with the market demand for lightweight equipment, APCO added lightweight versions to our emergency parachute range to be offered Side by side with our classic Mayday range.

  • Super light (SLT) Mayday range – Mayday 16 SLT, Mayday 18 SLT, Mayday 20 SLT – designed for pilots who wish to keep their equipment extremely light. Weight reduction for SLT was achieved by using state of the art materials – canopy cloth used is PN9 (the last, most sophisticated development in parachute cloth), as well as additional weight saving advanced design solutions.
  • Light (LT) Mayday range – Mayday 16 LT, Mayday 18 LT, Mayday 20 LT – The LT shares the same construction as the SLT, but uses PN1 cloth which is slightly heavier.
  • Classic Mayday range – Mayday 16, Mayday 18, Mayday 20, Guided Mayday and Mayday Tandem, as well as Mayday 28 UL.
  • The Bridle is made from 1700kg Dyneema Webbing. The attachment loop is covered with a Teflon sheath, to protect it from dangerous friction which may occur during deployment. Finally the bridle has a line sheath attached, to protect the lines where they link to it.

The main benefit the MD LT and SLT range offers is keeping the performance and quality the same as our classic Mayday, but slimming down the weight and bulk
