Pilot fights way back
from The Chronicle Journal
Students at a Thunder Bay high school learned from someone who knows about overcoming adversity and making a difference along the way. Students at Superior high school heard from the first airline pilot in the world who has type 1 diabetes to fly for commercial airlines and his fight to get his licence reinstated after developing the disease. Stephen Steele gave his presentation, Cleared For Take-Off, detailing his career in flight, his commercial licence being revoked after his diagnosis and a career change that led him back to the airline industry to challenge Transport Canada's standards.
