We are men and women, teachers and students, mechanics and farmers, bankers and programmers, priests and writers, working and retired. We come from all over the United States, many European countries, and Australia. We are diverse. Many of us are Deaf people who use American Sign Language. Others employ speech and lipreading. Some of us are hard of hearing. Some are late-deafened. We are united by a common love of flying.
We have been pilots since the earliest days of aviation. In fact, the first pilot to fly across the United States (Calbraith Perry Rodgers in “Vin Fiz,” 1911) had a severe hearing loss from scarlet fever during his childhood.
