Flying with Diabetes USA wants to allow participation from as many pilots with diabetes as possible. In support of this goal, it has been planned so that a wide variety of aircraft can participate. We are planning this flight around airspeeds of airplanes in the Cessna Skyhawk to Piper Arrow class to enable renter pilots and those with more common airplanes to more easily participate.

If you are a pilot with diabetes who is interested in participating in the flight, please contact us for more information. Even if you don't have a current medical, but are interested in participating, let us know as there may be opportunities for co-piloting and extra sets of eyes are always helpful.

FWDUSA also serves to help people with diabetes who are not yet pilots, but are interested in becoming one. We can others understand what is involved in obtaining the necessary certifications as well as offer practical advise on safely piloting with diabetes.
