Mission Aviator Training Program
Missionary pilots are an essential part of a great many functions of the body of Christ including Bible translation, church planting, disaster relief, emergency aid and transportation to remote areas around the globe. This is all in fulfillment of the Christian mandate to take the gospel to the whole world, and mission pilots often witness the Good News arriving in an area for the very first time. We are excited about your interest in this type of ministry, and hope that you will find ample opportunity to utilize the gifts God has given you for His glory.
At Wings of Refuge, our goal is to train pilots so that they are well prepared for any situation with which they might be presented. On the mission field, this kind of preparedness is uniquely important and the setting is likely to be quite different to the flying environment in the U.S. For these reasons, our Mission Aviator Training Program utilizes area grass strips and includes a tail-wheel endorsement in order to challenge already licensed pilots to hone their precision flying skills, as well as their ability to react appropriately to various kinds of unusual circumstance. Those wishing to participate in this program should already possess a Commercial Pilot’s License, with our training program helping provide specific training and flight hours to meet requirements for many missions organizations throughout the world. As always, please contact us for more information on this program.
