The Powerwing MK IV, representing a third generation in rectangular wing design (from Apco). It is a logical evolution of the previous MK II design which was well accepted by PPC pilots. MK IV has even better handling and stability with a more coordinated turn and improved rigidity in the air, making flying more comfortable and reasuring. The wing still has the classic rectangular look and retains all the parameters and features of previous Apco powerwings.
