Nov 2008 - After almost 100 hours of testing by the manufacturer, without any failures, testing of the new G6 Power paramotor is now being continued in the UK

April 2008 -  The Apco Thrust - purpose built paramotor wing now seriously improved. Thrust 09 is now made from the new lightweight Gelvenor siliconised cloth with optional 5 Year/500 hour warranty, shedding 500gr. of its weight. New, sophisticated FLEXON® batten system incorporated (see here) - replacing mylar reinforcement on L/E - another 300gr. gone from weight of the glider.
 
March 2008 - APCO will offer on all gliders produced from new Gelvenor cloth, a revolutionary 5 Year / 500 Hour Warranty against porosity deterioration which in our opinion is equal to a life-time warranty on a paraglider. This breakthrough was possible  due to newly installed sophisticated coating equipment at Gelvenor. The new cloth is not only lighter, but also significantly thinner, dramatically reducing the bulk and weight, without sacrificing any other properties of the cloth. This will put an end to all complaints and claims of cloth being too heavy and bulky. Its porosity measurements are 3 to 4 times better than the previous Gelvenor cloth, measuring 3,000-4,000 seconds on JDC porosity meter - truly unbelievable results. Washing and tumbling results unprecedented too, showing previously unseen durability and resistance to elements.

Jan 2008 - In the last edition of Vol Libre Magazine January 2008 (leading French paragliding publication),  a comprehensive comparison of 55 wings was published summarizing all glider reviews for all current wings evaluated by them over the last 2 years. A number of APCO gliders STAR in this comparison, including Karma, Vista, Thrust HP.

Karma was compared to best rival brands and in the long standing APCO tradition the Karma measured the best L/D in its Class, leaving behind many well regarded brands It was the only glider measuring a glide ratio over 8 - infact 8.07 at 36km/h when all the rest were dragging behind with 7 point something In the Paramotor section Apco's Thrust HP stars on the front Page and was elected as the magazines top choice of the Year!!!
"Impeccable inflation", "Very large speed range with excellent top Speed", "Packed with high end features, semi-reflex profile", "SRS and Hit valves", "Safety inspiring wing with excellent passive security".

August 2007 - Apco's latest and highly successful wing the Vista is now available with paramotor risers

Nov 2006 - New World Record of Speed in PPG Trike: 59,5 km/h - On Sunday November 19th, pilot Daniel Crespo set a new record of speed over straight course of 15-25 km in paramotor with trike: 59,53 km/h , for a course of 15.36 km . The average speed achieved (flying twice over the course) is more than 2 km/h faster than the current world record in this modality (57,2 k/h. Daniel took off in his trike with a paramotor Airfer VR200 with a WalkerJet W200 engine and an Ozone Viper 26 glider, at 13:04 on Sunday, from an airfield in Tomelloso , Spain . After taking some altitude, he started the route that had declared before the flight, crossing the start point at 13:09:21 hrs, according to the GPS. The pilot reached the end of the course at 13:25:04 hrs. The second flight over the section started at 13:25:52 hrs, and ended at 13:41:07 hours. The average speed obtained in both directions, according to our calculations and pending verification, is 59,53 kilometers per hour. Daniel's goal was to exceed 60 km/h, but he says that this has only been the first attempt to make it: He will soon try again this and other records of speed in paramotor with trike, as he is sure that he's capable of flying at more than 60 km/h using the trimers totally open and full speed bar of his paraglider.
