Apco Mayday since 1984

     

APCO Aviation started manufacturing the Mayday in 1984, and since then put over 20 000 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 is available in four sizes, all available with a short or long bridle, for paragliding, powered 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 powered paragliding and hang gliding, split bridles, long bridle extensions, UV-sleeves and much more.

• Over the years the basic design and construction techniques have remained the same - there is nothing to improve on a winning design and best seller. All four of the Mayday parachutes are "Flat Circular Pulled Down Apex" in design. In 1998 the Mayday Bi was released in a Pulled down Apex version, and soon after the Mayday 20 hit the market.

• The Mayday boasts superior construction and materials. The canopy cloth is F111 "zero porosity" ripstop nylon. The skirt and apex skirt is reinforced with 1'mil spec nylon tape, neatly wrapped and stitched with a precision four-needle machine. The line attachments have V-Tab reinforcements, sewn in place with a computerized machine, ensuring consistently high quality and strength.

• The Bridle is made from 6000 pound Nylon Webbing (UV Resistant). 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.

HEADSETS:

The electronics has been totally modified, allowing the connection of any radio-transceiver, and incorporates new characteristics, like intercom system connecting another NAC-Sidetone DUO with a small box of batteries. This makes possible the tandem flight and use each helmet separately.

Now it is possible to connect a MP3 player to listen music. If somebody speaks to us by radio, the music volume is muted automatically and if we decided to answer, when pressing the PTT, music is switch off to allow to listen the sidetone of our transmission, being returned progressively the volume up when the PTT is released.

Also it is possible to use air band radios without interferences, thanks to special filters in the PCB. The suppression of the noise improves drastically using a special noise cancel microphone. The circuit filter the vocal band and remove the noise of the signal to transmit with excellent clarity.
