APCO Guided Mayday Superlight (G-MD-SLT)

Guided Mayday SLT. Super Light Weight Rogallo type steerable rescue system.

Guided Mayday SLT (G-MD-SLT) is the new born superlight brother of APCO’s well known and respected G-MD. The Guided Mayday SLT shares the same performance of G-MD, but is much lighter (less than 2 kg.) and smaller pack volume. To achieve this goal, APCO used the latest hi-tech materials and cloth, including the use of PN-9 (20 Denier based high tenacity Nylon – same cloth used on Mayday SLT range).

Guided Mayday SLT – fully certified to EN requirements. The Guided Mayday SLT offers super fast, yet still soft deployment, making sure you land safely, un-shocked while safely steering to a landing field chosen by you. The deployment sequence of Guided Mayday SLT is designed to function with or without a cut-off system for the main wing, making it attractive to weekend pilots thanks to the simplicity of use, combined with the advantages of a steerable guiding rescue.

Design Features:

  • Super lightweight – less than 2 Kg. folded into internal deployment bag
  • Glides with L/D of ~1.5 and low sink rate, allowing for flare and soft landing.
  • Fully steerable – in same fashion as paraglider, allows for choice of landing places
  • low sink rate
  • High deployment reliability
  • Ultra fast opening with low deployment shock
  • Excellent flaring capacity on landing
  • Comes complete with brake handles and bridle/riser
