Corporate citizenship

At Collins Aerospace, we believe our corporate culture and core values go hand in hand. And at the heart of our values lies our passion for giving back. Whether it’s advancing STEM education, investing in strong, vibrant communities or being responsible stewards of our environment—through our monetary donations, expertise and employee engagement, we continually strive to make a positive impact in the global communities where we work and live.

Featured program: Orbis

You’ve heard the saying ‘practice makes perfect’.  For example, think about commercial pilots who have to fly an instrument check annually under the watchful eye of a chief flying instructor.  Simulators play a vital role in ensuring pilots maintain flight proficiency and are prepared for their check rides.  But did you know that simulators are playing a crucial role in training ophthalmologists as well? In April 2018, with the support of Collins Aerospace, Orbis International, an NGO (non-governmental organization) whose mission is to fight avoidable blindness, debuted the only Mobile Simulation Center which combines the latest in simulation technology, virtual reality and surgical and medical knowledge.  This new method of delivering hands-on training allows local ophthalmic teams – doctors, nurses and anesthesiologist, to practice complex surgical skills repeatedly in a controlled simulated environment.  This can accelerate the rate at which the team achieves surgical capability.  Practice does make perfect.
