AMS-FLIGHT, the manafacturer of the Apis family of gliders, has a rich heritage of glider building experience. In addition to the Apis andCarat motorglider, AMS-FLIGHT produces also gliders and motorgliders of DG family. The Directors of AMS-FLIGHT, once employees ofElan, purchased the Elan flight division to form the basis of AMS-FLIGHT. All Apis gliders are designed to, and the structural parts havebeen tested to, the internationally accepted JAR 22 regulations. All construction materials are the industry standard and are fully certified.

PERFORMANCEFlying an Apis glider is pure fun. Powerful roll authority is provided by the full span flaperons. The rudder pressures are light yet therudder is very powerful. The yaw string is easily centered. The lightweight yet powerful controls add up a soaring experience you willtruly enjoy. For cross-country soaring, these features put you in the center of the strong lift so you climb rapidly. In cruise, the flaperonsare set to the negative position and you quickly see that this glider runs as well as it climbs. In the self-launch mode, the climb rate is aremarkable 3,8 m/s. This outstanding performance is a result of the powerful engine and a low wing loading.
