Millions of people around the globe have diabetes. In recognition of World Diabetes Day today, Get Real Health is releasing this never before seen footage below of Jason Harmon, Chief Technology Officer and Founding Partner’s historic Diabetes Formation Flight USA 2013 in July.
Harmon and his fellow pilots made record-setting endurance flights to show diabetes can be safely managed in flight. A Wings Magazine article about the flight said, ‘while the U.S. was the first nation in the world to adopt that private flight rule for diabetic pilots in ’96, this country has not yet opened up commercial aviation to us,’ notes Harmon, who has single- and multi-engine as well as instrument ratings. ‘We’re trying to get that changed by demonstrating the perfect safety record that has been maintained by pilots with insulin-treated diabetes under this protocol since the FAA adopted its rule, even when flying record-setting extreme endurance flights.’ “
Jason was also featured on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s website and the flight received a lot of attention from other media sources. Watch the exclusive video footage of the flight below and click here to learn more.
