FUN 42 MKIII
The time has come to make our tandem wing, the popular FUN 42 MKII into an even better, safer, more responsive and much more fun to fly - in a word FUN 42 MKIII.
Over the last years of service, we collected enough feedback on FUN 42 MKII to have a clear idea what should be improved to perfect our well liked tandem into a true best seller and champion of the skies.
The aim for this project was to update the launch and ground handling with significantly reduced brake pressure. Combined with highly refined, more precise, direct and immediate handling, while maintaining same or better performance than FUN 42 MKII.
(Fun 42 is one of the best glide ratio tandem gliders around)
Judging by feedback, we have fully succeeded in achieving the goals of the project . The glider was thoroughly tested by professional tandem pilots and recieved thumbs up!!
Main Performance improvements:
Longevity of tandem wing is one of the main parameters considered by tandem pilots.
Revised, careful blend of cloth and materials will guarantee many more hours of service for this new 3rd generation of FUN 42.
We at APCO believe that on Fun 42 MK III commercial pilots will be able to put in up to double the amount of hours before trashing, compared to market standard - making each hour of flight significantly less costly
(APCO wings are known for their sturdy, durable construction and this wing will continue the legacy)
Fun 42 MK III is equally great for both free flying and for paramotor tandem flying
It especially excels when flying under power with a small, weak engine due to the outstanding performance of the wing and is the #1 choice for many light tandem trike pilots.
Fun 42 MK III is fully certified in EN-B Class
APCO also performed thorough in-house intensive test flight sequence to verify that the wing is in-line with expectations on every parameter.
