Would you consider using your skills and gifts as a missionary/mission pilot mechanic to bring life and hope to those who are needy and lost? Are you looking for real purpose as you fly the friendly skies? Opportunities exist both here at home and abroad. Regardless of where you fly, you will be using your skills as a pilot to further God’s kingdom.
