    "We are holding another “Flying With Diabetes Day” at Duxford Imperial War Museum on Saturday 1st November for up to 200 children/families and adults with type 1/type 2 insulin treated diabetes, and if you can make it, will be great to see you there! (I’ve attached a link below for registration.)

    The venue opens up at 10 a.m. with talks/exhibits/lunch/refreshments from 11 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., and you have access to the aviation museum which includes a wide array of aircraft including Concorde (which you can walk through). Speakers include Karl and “Biker Man” who flies a motorized parachute to raise funds for JDRF, endurance-related sportspeople/athletes including Kyle Rose, former Team Type 1 professional cyclist with T1 diabetes, plus JDRF giving a talk on latest treatment/cure research developments.

    Dexcom, Medtronic and Roche (Accu-Chek) are sponsors of the event, and INPUT (which advocates and advises on how to obtain insulin pumps etc.) will also be exhibiting. There will also be a couple of prominent UK diabetes bloggers attending who should be interesting to meet also, plus my old RAF Chief Flying Instructor who covertly flew “under the radar screen” with T1 diabetes while in the RAF in the 80s/90s.

    If you can make it, great! And if you know of anyone else with T1 diabetes who could be interested, please do pass on details. The numbers are beginning to fill up – please do register if you can join us."
