About 10 Deaf French students are training right now. I hope they will make about 100 jumps before the DWR 2010 in Euro. One deaf Italian made over 500 jumps in 4 years and he works as camera man. .... C L ....... The French Divers website www.vivelachute.org .... Our website www.deafskydivers.org... Dive Hard !! : )"-\\__//
I always translate from Portuguese to English, done at google.com / translation but I have basic English reading and writing.
My name is Eduardo, I am man Brazilian deaf and still I dreamed another 10 years to make my first free flight. But I go do AFF course in school "Skydiving Brazil" on my vacation in July 2010. I'll surely do the same course =].
Researched in recent months to find information on group of deaf skydivers who enjoy fun in the sky + art = love =] in www.deafskydivers.org. I found lots of information important to my growing and practice of radical sports. Because here in Brazil, many company Skydiving not let to deaf, for lack of knowledge and not know anyone.
At the end of last week I struggled a lot with the owner / trainer to approve my project, i fought, i fought, i fought. He was amazed that many deaf foreigners skydivers have made jumping in the sky. And now he's happy for me to be first deaf skydiver in Brazil, or Latin America. Also it will be first special instructor for the deaf in history.
Surely you all know about a deaf American friend who helped me a lot about how to involve the media (signs in the sky and in the drop zone) between deaf and hearing the AFF course and I am very grateful to him deaf.
For I am keen to make the union of you. Joining the training and stamping world record in the coming days, months or years.
Guys, you have some video that explains about Skydiving for the deaf? Training, information and anything. Thank you.
I would like to make new friends and add here. Please =]
Big Hugs. Friends of great strength.

Yes! I looked you were first deaf skydiver in Canada. As I entered the site deafskydivers.org lot, almost every day! I am so happy that you fulfilled his dream of being the first in Canada. =]. I like to see deaf friends to realize their dreams, I want to make new friends deaf skydivers.
More importantly, the entire team of deaf skydivers to unite for the future, who knows might be able to train over 16 people who together form the sky to mark the new world record. And let's be happy together and win new feelings of great emotion. ;)
But I have to train hard in the course "AFF" in July, my vacation 2 weeks in July (i want half vacation; other I go do in December / January, almost 3 weeks). I know that time is hard to do now.
I've added on facebook.com almost 2 weeks before the community deaf skydivers, I do not remember. Obviously I wanted to fly free in heaven with the deaf in the future, I really insist.
