No Trouble In Paradise

Paradise USA just marked the 10th Anniversary of its P1 design with some positive and encouraging signs for the industry:
* The Paradise P1, which I did a story on this year, is now certified in the U.S., Brazil (it's home company has a new 75,000 sq. ft. factory there), Australia and South Africa.* My story in the mag focused on Dylan Redd, who flies a specially-modified P1 with hand controls for paraplegic pilots.
* The Sebring-based U.S. arm of the company markets the P1, an excellent SLSA that's based on a four-seat design, so for one thing it's got a lot of room behind the seats for baggage, something that's not that common for the industry.
* Paradise has designed and marketed eight different aircraft since 1985.
Here's a big congrats to Chris and crew and best wishes for another 10 years of successful LSA design and marketing.
