Flying Eye Hospital Returns to EAA AirVenture and ORBIS to Announce Details of
MD-10 2013 Launch!
Aviation enthusiasts are abuzz with the upcoming EAA AirVenture Convention - the world’s largest airshow – taking place July 23-29, 2012 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year, ORBIS International’s Flying Eye Hospital (FEH), a literal hospital with wings, returns to AirVenture for the third time and on an unprecedented scale.
The FEH will be the largest plane at the airshow and the only offering a behind-the-scenes look at the interior of an aircraft. Visitors can tour the FEH, which is a result of a unique and lasting alliance forged between the medical and aviation industries. The specially designed and converted DC-10 aircraft allows the ORBIS team and Volunteer Faculty to provide hands-on training to local eye care professionals and convey the latest medical knowledge to treat patients and restore sight.
