Sky’s no limit for man with no arms, no legs.

Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs. The globe-trotting Australian inspirational speaker has never let that slow him down.  “No arms, no legs, no limits” is his slogan, and Vujicic proved that April 24 at Skydive DeLand, by jumping from an airplane in a tandem skydive.  United Parachute Technologies in DeLand devised a special harness to outfit Vujicic for the jump.  It was a jump for and in joy, as the photos reveal.  Vujicic, 30, is president of Life Without Limbs (www.lifewithoutlimbs.org). His message: “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart.”  “He’s a special kind of individual,” United Technologies owner Bill Booth said. “He was so enthusiastic. … He said, ‘No matter what your problems are, you can overcome them.’”  Booth said he has been developing some arthritis and had been feeling sorry for himself. Vujicic’s message cured Booth’s self-pity.  How did the Australian end up skydiving in DeLand?  Vujicic, a preacher, was in Central Florida to give an inspirational talk at Northland Church in Longwood.  Tandem master Trevor Cedar heard about it, and told Booth, “We’ve got to get him to jump.”  Vujicic was enthusiastic.  United Technologies engineer Daniel “Blikkies” Blignaut went to work designing a special harness for Vujicic.  The usual harness is designed for wearers who have arms and legs. The straps fit around the legs.  That obviously wouldn’t work for Vujicic.  Blignaut planned Vujicic’s harness just as a tailor would make a suit, using pins and marks, to fit around Vujicic’s cylinder of a body. The harness had to secure him to his tandem-partner, without hurting him.  The Skydive DeLand crew even hung Vujicic from a beam by his harness, to make sure the harness worked properly. It did, and caused him no discomfort.  An exultant Booth said, “That’s what we make tandem for, so anybody can make jumps. Nick’s sort of the ultimate ‘anybody.’”  Harnessed to Skydive DeLand instructor Trevor Cedar, Vujicic made his jump. The skydive was a success, and everyone had a great time, Booth reported.  Vujicic said he wouldn’t skydive anywhere but DeLand. United Parachute Technologies is keeping Vujicic’s harness for him.  “I think it’s one of the best experiences of my life,” Vujicic said afterward, as the crew videotaped his reaction to the jump.  Vujicic’s latest adventure before the skydive was his marriage to Kanae in February. Vujicic calls himself blessed, indeed.
As seen in Nick Vujicic's book titled, "Unstoppable."

Did you know that the DeLand Falcons were facing good and bad news within a week?
Trevor Cedar with Zero Tolerance Miami in 2008

The DeLand Falcons won the Rookie Class with a new team record and the first 2-digit average, including three 11-pointers. The members of the newly formed Rookie Class team, with player coach Trevor Cedar, are Indoor Cloud League regulars at iFLY Orlando. Trevor Cedar introduced the DeLand locals to 4-way competition, which is still his own passion. The Sun Path Products NSL News took notice of him when he had joined Miami Synergy in 2009: "Point Trevor Cedar is a very young skydiver who made his first jump in the summer of 2007. After being an athlete and competitor in other sports, he did not hesitate to take on the new skydiving challenge with full power. He already completed 650 jumps and approx. 15 hours of wind tunnel training in these 1.5 years and just got his coaching rating. He is 42 years old and owns and operates three fitness studios in the Miami area, the South Florida Boxing and Fitness Gym. He was born in Australia and grew up in England. He has been living in the USA for 16 years and is very excited to be a 4-way competitor". He left Skydive Miami years ago to become a full time skydiver in DeLand, where he has been working as an AFF and Tandem instructor. His job did not allow himself much 4-way training and competition, while he has helped young and new skydivers to get involved in the sport. The 10.0 average at the October meet was a big step for the DeLand Falcons, who had started with 6.5 in August. Unfortunately, the Falcons will not be able to come back in November with the same lineup for the pursuit of the NSL Championship title in the Rookie Class. The Falcons had scheduled their next training day for last weekend's Sunday. Inside Center Nicolas Davis and Tail Brad Weinberg attended a swooping camp with Team Alter Ego and coach Curt Bartholomew on Saturday. Brad Weinberg ended up with a complicated ankle fracture and could not come back for Sunday's 4-way training, which had to be canceled...
