Pilots flying with Diabetes and Insulin

Viernes, 17 de febrero de 2012 Pedro Ortiz García Sin comentarios

“Pilots With Diabetes” (PWD) is a group of former commercial and military pilots, aspiring commercial pilots and current private pilots, all with insulin-dependent diabetes. Currently only five countries worldwide allow private flying with insulin dependent diabetes (USA, UK, Canada, Australia and Israel) and one country allows multi-crew commercial flying (Canada). This could be interesting for any AME’s around the world.
