Hand Controls

 

There are more and more "production" aircraft around the world that have factory designed and fitted optional hand controls for pilots that have no or limited lower limb control. Read more about these aircraft click here.

Before now wheelchair persons could just forget about flying right? After all nearly all aircraft need legs and feet to operate rudders and brakes, dont they?

Well yes and no...many disabled pilots around the world have adapted normal aircraft to thier use by designing special controls to be "bolted on" to production aircraft like Cessnas and Pipers. Read Suzi Duncan's story here.

This can be quite involved and costly especially if you want to produce and sell them to others!

Many have achieved it and some have thousands of hours flying their adapted aircraft. read more

Pictured below are some of the hand control that allow students without lower limb capability to pilot certain types of aircraft.
