The bullet riser shown left has been designed to produce a reduced area to the direction of travel and airflow.
Bullet Riser – a revolutionary design of riser. (In the best APCO tradition thinking outside the box)
The riser which will set the future design for the industry – reduction of riser drag by 80% and more.
Its drop shaped branches produce only a fraction of the drag produced by regular risers. It is still made from the same 25mm. width webbing, butshaped into a tear drop profile – easy to understand and handle.
See the photos comparing the 2 risers and their frontal areas – on the left bullet riser, right side regular riser –
no further comments required! – A truly intelligent design.
It is a very effective way of improving performance without sacrificing safety, handling and integrity of the wing.
We like the idea and see its another step towards the future of flying.
