First US Commercial Flight with Type 1 Diabetic Captain

This is just awesome.

For the first time a Type 1 Diabetic was Captain of a US commercial flight.

This should give great hope to our youth who live with this disease that it now can’t keep you from the skies.

I wish this happened 26 years ago back around when I was diagnosed as an 11 year old.

Anyways, here is the full article. Great stuff!

This is a major breakthrough in the aviation industry, especially with the consequences the industry is facing as a result of COVID-19.

I just love this. Someone in my family has type one diabetes, and I’m sure it will be a great inspiration for him in the future.

Cheers!
