"A diagnosis of adhd means no to parachute jumps, reports the P4 Värmland."
"In Fallskärmsförbundets rules singled neuropsychiatric diagnoses like the times to get the parachute."
"– and It's so fucking unfair. I think that they can not, in my opinion, hårdra it so brutally that they actually do, " says Janina Karlman, which was deleted from a fallskärmskurs because of his adhd, to the radio station."
"Fallskärmsförbundet declined to comment and refers to the Swedish transport agency's regulations on civil aviation and aero-medical regulations. Flygöverläkaren Richard Söderberg, however, say to the channel that there are no specific rules on parachuting and adhd, but that the association made its own interpretation."
"P4 Värmland has previously examined how the neuropsychiatric diagnoses close the doors on several levels in the society. For example, a person with, for example, adhd or Asperger's syndrome do not do national service or become a police officer."
