AerSale, a global supplier of mid-life aircraft, engines, used serviceable material (USM), and MRO services, is pleased to announce it is servicing the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital at its Goodyear, Arizona, MRO facility. The aircraft will undergo a routine maintenance C check, which requires a large majority of an aircraft’s components to be inspected.

The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, a high-profile aircraft housing a state-of-the-art teaching facility complete with operating room, classroom, and recovery room, travels the world in a global effort to end avoidable blindness. The working hospital flies to low- and middle-income countries, provides specialist training for local doctors and nurses, and performs sight-saving surgeries.

“We are truly honored to support the efforts of this worthwhile cause,” said Charles McDonald, Senior Vice President of MRO Services at AerSale. “It is a remarkable aircraft that changes countless lives and our MRO operations in Goodyear are ideally suited to ensure its continued service.”

“We are very happy to be working with AerSale on this year’s C check,” Bruce Johnson, Director, Aircraft Operations and Maintenance, said. “Although this is the first official agreement between the two companies, many of us involved have worked closely together before within the aviation industry, and we are looking forward to a continued relationship in the future.”
