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
February 1–12, six pilot/mechanics who serve in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific with SIL and other aviation partners will attend the Supervisor Pilot course (SPC) at the JAARS Center. The course focuses on excellence in leadership, resource management, and other skills and attributes essential when supervising fellow pilots or serving as instructor pilots on the field.
Besides this important training, the SPC allows these pilots, from different fields of service, to share advice and encouragement with each other on handling day-to-day operations overseas.
Your gift to Aviation Training helps equip pilots and mechanics for ongoing safe and effective ministry around the world. Thank you for praying for these young men and women, in their responsibilities as supervisor pilots, as they return to their individual fields of service.
- Ask God for safe flights and good connections as participants travel from around the world to attend the course.
- Pray that participants will have a clear understanding of the material and be able to effectively implement what they learned when they return to their fields of service.
- Ask God to provide clarity of focus for those presenting at the Supervisor Pilot course.
- Pray for the communities and the people where aviation serves and supports the work of Bible translation and language development.
