Question about Professional Skills for missionaries:
"What kind of opportunities are there for pilots, airplane mechanics, and other aviation specialists to serve in missions?"
Mission Aviation Fellowship
Ethnos360 (formerly New Tribes Mission)
JAARS (associated with Wycliffe)
Mission aviation often involves working for a mission agency, flying small planes, and going into remote locations. But some Christian pilots and mechanics also work in "tentmaking" roles employed by commercial airlines.
For a discussion of the need for aviation specialists in today's world, see also Davis Interview: Missions and Aviation (Propel).
Becoming a pilot may seem an unattainable dream or a daunting task, but many kinds of training are available. See, for example, the Mission Aviation Flight Training Academy.
