Orbis flies higher with STG Aerospace

Orbis, a non-profit alliance between the medical and aviation industries, operates the world’s only ophthalmic teaching hospital on board a customised MD-10 aircraft. The Flying Eye Hospital, a converted McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30CF, travels across Africa, Asia and Latin America equipping local eye care teams with the skills to treat eye conditions, such as cataract, and training others to do the same.

STG Aerospace has been a long time supported of the endeavour, and has already organised a number of fundraising events, but has now chosen Orbis as its charity partners to further aid the work of the charity.

Tessa Evans, CFO at STG Aerospace, commented: “As a successful global business, we felt it was important to give something back on a global scale. And because our business is fundamentally about light and about flying, a charity that is using the power of aviation to prevent sight loss in some of the poorest countries in the world was an obvious choice. We’re looking forward to doing what we can to help Orbis achieve even more.”
