New World Record Initiative

APCO announces a new intiative, sponsoring a campaign to conquer the Paragliding World Record - open distance or declared goal (free flight) - to be made on a standard APCO certified product from the current range.

An unheard of prize of US $25,000 in cash, will be paid to the pilot breaking the world record. The record(s) must be FAI approved, fully documented and followed by a well written story and collection of nice, print quality photos featuring APCO products used for the new record.

APCO will also handsomely reward a good story with attractive photos telling of the attempt to break World Record on an APCO current wing - even if it was unsuccessful and just ended up with remarkable flights -publishable in the media.

For pilots needing to obtain an APCO wing to make an attempt to break the World Record - a special deal will be offered.
