A quick flight can save days of hiking.
Bible translation takes people to the world’s most remote places—rainforests, mountains, deserts, and islands. A flight can shave off days of tough driving, hiking, or canoeing. And sometimes, it’s the only safe way to get there.
How JAARS Fits In
We’ve been in mission aviation for over 60 years. We help our partners start and run flight programs—by training and sending staff, setting standards, equipping aircraft, doing on-the-ground research, and more. Currently, we help programs in Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and Tanzania.
How You Can Help
After the March 22 celebration of the newly extended runway at JAARS, AOPA President Mark Baker had a special announcement for Eric Peterson, our airport manager and leader for the runway project. Baker called Eric and his wife, Carol back up to the podium and named Eric as the winner of the AOPA 2015 You Can Fly Sweepstakes top prize, a Reimagined Cessna 152.
