Look Ma: All Hands!

---Dylan Redd, who lost the use of his legs several years ago, took delivery at the show of his new Paradise from Brasilian maker Paradise Aircraft.
The aircraft is fitted with a unique set of two hand controls that allow Redd to fly the airplane, including rudder/nosewheel control, throttle and braking.
---An inspiring young man and an interesting story about how the controls were designed, built and refined - in only three months: look for more details in an upcoming issue of Plane & Pilot.
