Below knee amputee skydivers- I need your help!

Recommended Posts

I lost my legs a year ago in a jumping accident. I am ready to make my return to the sky and I need some help. Is there anyone out there or do you know anyone who is skydiving with a prosthetic? I need some help with what suspension systems you are using, what feet or any tips and tricks you have come across in your experience!? It could save me a lot of money if I get some good insight before settling on a final system.

You might want to post on the Skydivers with Disabilities side as well. I've known a number of jumpers with prosthetics but have been away from the sport for awhile so not sure if they are still jumping. There was a team called Pieces of Eight that was comprised entirely of amputees. Maybe they are still around.? Good luck, there is assistance out there - just need to make the right connection.

Nick Fener lost his legs below the knees and has made a full return to jumping.

He and his wife Lindsay are at Skydive Chicago now (I think).

I'll track them down and have them get in touch with you.

Nice job getting back at it!
