APCO Mayday Paragliding

The Mayday has been manufactured since 1984 and over 20,000 of them have been put into service since then. Over 200 lives have been saved as a result of Mayday deployments, and none lost. The canopy cloth is F111 "zero porosity" ripstop nylon. The skirt and apex skirt is reinforced with 1’mil spec nylon tape, neatly wrapped and stitched with a precision four-needle machine.

The line attachments have V-Tab reinforcements, sewn in place with a computerized machine, ensuring consistently high quality and strength.

The Bridle is made from 6000 pound Nylon Webbing (UV Resistant). The attachment loop is covered with a Teflon sheath, to protect it from dangerous friction which may occur during deployment. Finally the bridle has a line sheath attached, to protect the lines where they link to it. The Mayday has very fast opening times as measured in tests.

Supplied in universal deployment bag.
