Flying with Diabetes Day

12 October 2013 (East, London)

Location: Duxford Airfield’s Imperial War Museum
Date: Saturday 12 October 2013
Time: 11am-3.30pm 

JDRF is delighted to announce that Douglas Cairns, former RAF pilot instructor and holder of multiple aviation speed records, will be hosting another Flying With Diabetes day this October. Douglas has type 1 diabetes, and recently added a new record to his collection after leading a USA Diabetes Formation Flight along with four other pilots with diabetes, setting a new formation world speed record between two major USA cities.    

Flying with Diabetes is taking place on Saturday 12 October and will run from 11am until 3.30pm at Duxford Airfield’s Imperial War Museum, the UK's premier aviation museum. 

The event is once again set to be one of the UK’s most inspirational and educational events for people with diabetes. The day will include latest news and talks from record-setting pilots with diabetes, plus a former Team Type 1 professional cyclist, along with presentations by a leading diabetes researcher. Attendees will be able to learn about diabetes company products at company booth stands during breaks, where refreshments will be provided, while entertainment will be provided for younger children. Attendees will also be able to view historic aircraft on display and have the chance to walk through the cabin of a Concorde supersonic aircraft. 

JDRF will be featured during the event, with opportunities for attendees to make donations.
