Hip Prosthesis Can't Post

Hi. I am a French skydiver and base jumper. I had a full hip prosthesis in July. I would like to know if you know some people who jump with hip prosthesis. If yes, could you please me provide with their e-mail address so as to be able to get directly in touch with them?

Many thanks.

I jump with half a hip replacement. I had the femural head replaced but not the socket.

I'm not a hip amputee, but I am an AK, and I jump with my prosthesis. I am currently getting a new leg made that should help me with freeflying, so have been waiting for that to get done to jump more. I have very little experience as I am a new jumper, but will try to answer any question I could relate to if it helps.
