The Story of Great Commission Aviation
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
Great Commission Aviation exists to help reach the unreachable parts of the earth with the Gospel by training missionaries to be their own pilots and utilizing light sport, experimental (kit built) and non-traditional aircraft for their ministry use.
We looked around and realized there are missionaries who spend a lot of time traveling to distant locations on often impassable roads over hours and sometimes days in order to reach those in their ministry.
Our solution was to train missionaries to be their own pilots, giving them the freedom to get to remote locations more quickly and spend their time doing what they have been called to do: carry out the Great Commission.
We want to:
- Train Missionary Pilots (or train missionaries to be their own pilots).
- Assist in equipping Pilots with aircraft suitable for the mission field.
- Send missionaries around the world by training them to fly and maintain light sport, experimental and non-traditional aircraft.
- Facilitate sharing of technical and operational information regarding aircraft in the field.
How we will do that:
- Provide Sport Pilot Training through Commercial Pilot Training in airplanes and gyroplanes.
- Along with pilot ground school and flight training, provide the training to build and maintain light sport, experimental and non-traditional aircraft, including gyroplanes; small aircraft perfect for a variety of landing environments.
- Raise the funds to allow us to operate while providing this unique training opportunity to missionaries.
