Description

Back in 2014, when Vista III was first introduced, it was a ground breaking wing. An EN B certified true 3 liner (top to bottom), shark nose wing that performs and feels like a well tuned racing car which excels in strong conditions ! It has set a standard for many other competitor models which came after.

Vista IV – exciting sport class EN B wing with fully sheathed lines and APCO’s time proven double siliconised Gelvenor fabric.

The new Vista IV is based on the platform of Vista III and improved on several key points:

3D leading edge cut smartly incorporated into the color design – it allows for a cleaner leading edge, improved top surface layout and tension for better performance.

Risers- Perfect 12 [mm] webbing risers with incredible attention to details. They are super-lightweight at less than 99 gr! Incorporating a unique A5, C5 (Split A, C) line connection method with no Karabiners! Making it cleaner, safer, lighter – smart and elegant.
Specifically designed ball bearing pulleys allow for the smoothest speed system operation possible.

Colors representing the new spirit of APCO Aviation, both striking and functional as they incorporate the 3D cut, allowing for a balanced combination of different fabrics according to their position on the wing.

The Vista IV is available also with motor risers.

Its pitch stability turns it into a very pleasant paramotor wing as it cuts through the air almost unaffected by small turbulence. Coupled with its performance, it is a highly efficient paramotor wing perfect for electric engines or low power motors.

Certification flight tests prove the safety of this wing.
Despite being a true 3 liner it passed certification flights with almost all maneuvers in the A category!
It is a very rigid canopy which reassures the pilot with its consistency and pitch dumping characteristics.
The wing transmits an incredible reassuring feeling of safety to the pilot, building confidence, for better piloting.

Vista IV will be the perfect companion for any pilot from talented school student to cross country pilots looking for a good performing, safe and easy to manage wing.

    Characteristics

    • TAKE OFF

      The APP profile (shark nose) profile helps this wing to have a easy balanced inflation, The wing will rise easily and controllably overhead without a tendency to overshoot or lift the pilot if checked overhead.

    • LANDING

      Simple, predictable approach and flair to a standstill.

    • THERMALLING

      The Vista IV will easily settle in a constant angle of bank turn in a thermal, requiring very little input once centered, resulting in a superior climb rate, which will have you at the top of the gaggle in no time.

    • PERFORMANCE

      Best Glide will be achieved at about half speed bar, and the APP / sharknose profile keeps the wing highly pressurised and collapse resistant throughout the speed range.

    • PILOT FEEDBACK

      simple to understand is how to summarize the Vista IV. The wing is both reassuring and precise in its pilot feedback. It is a forgiving wing for beginners, and when directed correctly, it will immediately respond without hesitation.

    • CONSTRUCTION

      According to Apco’s legendary tradition for durability – the construction of the wing is bullet proof! Extremely durable cloth combined with proven construction designed to withstand students abuse for as long as necessary.

    • Vista IV

      Vista 4 is fun to fly and will excite its pilots even for long cross country flights. Great and secure glider at the same time to enjoy hours after hours.

      The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions.

      The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of Polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The Karabiners/rectangular loops that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
