Our superhero Lars Anderson came to Freedom in the Air (FITA) in the spring of 2012 and got his Private Pilots Licence. He returned to the UK for a few days during the London 2012 Paralympics. In the spirit of the games, Lars and a friend decided to travel around the UK by plane which is adapted to pilots with lower limb disabilities.
The Piper PA28 is fitted with the Vision Air hand controls developed by FITA's patron Susi Duncan. This film shows the duo's travel, good and bad weather flying and the enroute conversations between them and the air traffic control.
