Skydiving for Wheelchair Users

I an abled body person with just some mobility issues. I have taken on big tasks since my weight loss success such as jumping off trucks, flatbeds, from shelves of seven feet in the air and down a flight of stairs.  All landing on my feet.  I want to sky dive one day before I am sixty.  Plus that will be a nice goal for both my sixtieth and eightieth birthdays. Right not I feel my blood pressure going up thinking about this (fear of heights), but this propbably would not be happening after I complete my first jump with a good landing.

With this said, some of you wheelchair users got more guts than me. And you love your flying, which is good. One of my life coaches is Tony Robbins.  Tony sends his members, who are wheelchair users, skydiving and introduces them to murder ball.  This is to build their self esteem in which they are very successful in after they completed the Skydives for the first time and or played murder ball. They feel really like they are right on top of the world which I can understand this from what I accomplished too. With this, I have to say that the human mind truly amazes me.

I take this time to introduce to you, wheelchair user, Paul Howell, who made his first jump near Sidney Australia in Oct. 2011. Paul strapped his legs to attached to his instructor's straps before they lifted him out of his wheelchair. See the video here. He jumped out the plane with his instuctor attached to his back. He's awesome

With this said, the Quadrilplegic Free Fall 220 Kph is ran near Sidney Australia every year. In this quadriplegics are taking their turns jumping out of the plane with their instructors attached to their backs. You guys are just awesome!

Cancer patients are also skydiving. The bottomline is don't wait for tomorrow for what you can do for today. Dale Carnagie always said, "Tomorrow never comes". So true in many ways.

All of you are awesome. Please vote if you like this and comment.  I love comments. Enjoy the video.

    Sorry. I meant to say, "I am a" in the first sentence of this post. The 30 minute rule cut this off.

      Thank you. If you ever change your mind, you can go out on your trainer's back at first, which is probably what I'm going to do for my first jump.
