I was fortunate enough to meet a lot of the team when I visted the aircraft. When you think the specialists give up their holidays to do this at no cost it is amazing.
Cheers

Excellent, Steve!
It's so great to see people selflessly helping others. Within or outside of the aviation world.
Long live ORBIS!

It was funny I was talking to one of the surgeons and was suprised to learn he had also been trained as cabin crew, part of the requirements for all the other staff members that are classed and passneger. He was really impressed with his crew tag on his case.

Wonderful, SO happy for this child, and the work of Orbis.

Very personally bittersweet to watch. Still, I've much to be thankful for - I CAN see and I've done fine, as well or better than many with far superior sight Geek

Thanks F1 and iFly, may you prosper as you support good work like this Thumbs Up
Regards
Mark

After watching the headline news tell us the world is going to hell in a hand basket, it is something like this that truly says otherwise. 

Thanks for sharing.

As this article describes, FedEx has made another generous donation, this time to ORBIS. It's not a 737, but it's worth a bunch anyway. Plus $5 million in cash.

I know they get a tax break and all, but FedEx is one of the most generous companies around. I know a couple of people who work part-time at the Indianapolis hub and they sure do love their company. And a few of my former students are using FedEx-donated aircraft at Purdue. Too bad more corporations don't realize there is much more than just a net profit.

It is FEDEX pilots that crew the Flying Eye Hospital and it is done when on leave. FEDEX was concenrned as the old aircraft was a DC10-10 there would be a shortage of crews to fly her so suggested the upgrade to the DC10-30 with MD11 avionices and now their crews can continue to support the operation. FEDEX is an amazingly generous company.

Hi Steve
Heart warming film. I support Orbis & will continue to do so.
Without eyesight none of us would see or read this.
Cheers

Hello Howard,

I had the honour of being invited to meet the Ethiopian ambassador for the work we had done with Flight1 on a project in Ethopia it was something my daughter will not forget. It is an amazing charity and they do amazing work. Hopefully we will run another fund raising event soon. I am open to ideas for an event?
Cheers

Hi Steve, just an idea! As the Ifly737 stands now it's a really great product, the best in its class.
The feature pack will lift it to even greater heights of realism, and provided freely from the efforts of the developers and testers.
Why not allow us, the users, to show our support for ifly and the orbis charity by making a voluntary donation when we eventually get to download the feature pack. Perhaps a voluntary PayPal button somewhere on the download page might do it.
Personally I would really like to contribute in this way as it allows us all to support you in what you support. I'm sure others would too!
Regards Mike

stumbled into this, messing around. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing this. My wife is almost totally blind, began to loose her sight right after we were married 28 years ago and works for the Industries for the Blind. having sight is a precious thing. never take it for granted.
