David Gitlin

President, UTC Aerospace Systems

Orbis and the Fly­ing Eye Hos­pi­tal have made a tremen­dous impact on the world by restor­ing vision to hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple in need. The Mobile Sim­u­la­tion Cen­ter will help Orbis widen its influ­ence by offer­ing train­ing to more vol­un­teer med­ical pro­fes­sion­als in even more remote areas.”

"It will enable them to get in the field faster and make a difference faster," added Gitlin. "We are so proud to be associated with such a world-class organization that makes a profound difference in people’s lives every day."

UTC Aerospace Systems first announced its contribution to Orbis at the Paris Air Show in June. They announced their sponsorship of the simulation center this week at the Dubai Airshow.
