Is your brother actually a skydiver? if so, what are the restriction put on him?
As to going to the US to do the jumps well I cant afford to do that and then on top of that I cant afford to keep going to to Spain either.
I have just phoned Dr carter's Surgery and he is on leave until next week so will speak to him then.
By the sounds of it, my idea of doing this course is over!
Dont give up.
A guy recently came through a DZ I visit sometimes (UK)to do AFF and he has Type 1 diabetes, insulin dependant.
he is over 40 and his own GP signed him off as fit to skydive. Basically, if you have not had any 'episodes' (as in where you pass out or go hypo or hyper iirc??) in the last 3 years or so then a friendly doctor should sign you off.
You could even pay for a consultation with a private doctor (an aviation doc) who will assess you and sign you off more happily than your average whuffo GP who thinks 'plunging to the earth' is a sure fire way to die etc etc yada yada yada
