Albert Ueltschi, founder of Flight Safety Intl passed away on Oct 18, 2012.

Ueltschi was a leader of Orbis International, a nonprofit organization that flies a specially outfitted airliner around the world to teach sight-saving surgical procedures. Last month he signed “The Giving Pledge,” an initiative started in 2010 by Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates to encourage the richest Americans to commit to giving away at least 50 percent of their wealth.

In his pledge, Ueltschi wrote, “My share will be contributed to helping the least advantaged people in the world lead healthy and productive lives through medical innovation.”
