APCO Aviation Ltd. presents KARMA

Finally APCO has launched KARMA – the latest addition to its range of gliders It has been long awaited and APCO spent almost a year on its development. APCO needed this time to make sure that KARMA will be perfect and are confident that it will satisfy even the most demanding pilots.


APCO’s ongoing research and development program combined with 30 years of experience in designing wings has shown  which design developments can allow for substantial increases in both performance and safety – which were fully implemented in KARMA.

KARMA out-performs many DHV 1-2 gliders while maintaining DHV 1 security at all speeds. Best of all, the handling is simply excellent, whether on the ground during launch, or thermalling up, racing through the sky and climbing with complete confidence in the strongest and tightest of thermals.

KARMA is designed for new pilots just after training or for any pilot searching for a wing which inspires confidence, but at the same time delivers the handling and performance to fly high and far.

KARMA lets the pilot relax, concentrating on flying, safe in the knowledge that the wing has passed the most recent and stringent safety tests.

KARMA’s performance boundaries have been pushed even further, handling is even sweeter, safety more reassuring and launch is easier than ever.

New profile, further planform evolution, and loads of design innovations were a major factor in improving overall performance of KARMA The glider weight has been sharply reduced, even though APCO is still using its time-proven, reliable Gelvenor cloth (in fact KARMA is lighter than most rival gliders in its Class)

KARMA Paramotor Version
The Karma is also available in a paramotor version, with modified risers with trimmers. Based on the ultra safe DHV-1 Karma paraglider, it offers the ideal solution as a school paramotor or as a first paramotor for the novice pilot.
