“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14
The Mission Aviation program is designed to train young people with a passion to share the gospel with those who live in areas so remote, they cannot be reached except by plane. This aviation training includes both ground school and flight training with the goal to have each student receiving a private pilot’s license before or at graduation.
Time permitting, some students do further instrument rating training. Additional instruction, including health evangelism and Bible study are included in the flight program to help prepare the student for the dynamic aspects of mission service.
The disaster response component of this ministry also prepares mission aviation students for service in countries with little to no infrastructure. Ministering in these often, remote and austere conditions can prove challenging and this training is designed to help students anticipate and adapt during the transition.
“Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28:19, 20
