Preparing People and Planes for Worldwide Mission Service

Who we are:

Through the centuries Christian missionaries have labored to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to "the uttermost parts of the earth." In carrying God's Word to remote peoples, weeks and possibly months of slow, often dangerous travel was undertaken. Not until recent time has a practical solution to the problem of distance and geographic barriers been available.

Today, many missionaries serving in remote parts of the world rely on aircraft to transport them to and from locations where they serve, to bring them supplies while they are there, and to stand by for emergencies. By speeding the missionary to his work, many more people will hear of the love and salvation of Jesus Christ.

MMS prepares aircraft for missions while training aircraft mechanics for mission service.

Since 1975 MMS has provided an aircraft maintenance apprenticeship for those who wish to serve God through mission aviation. MMS also provides aircraft repair, overhaul and modification free of any labor charge to Christian missionary organizations.

After successful completion of a thirty month training program, the apprentice is prepared to take the examinations for the Federal Aviation Administration airframe and powerplant mechanic license. From the initial day of training an MMS apprentice aircraft mechanic is a productive member of the mission community. Mission aircraft are repaired, overhauled or modified by apprentices under supervision of licensed and qualified staff.

An exciting aspect of the MMS ministry is the short term mission field assistance of the Rapid Response Teams. These MMS teams help reduce the "down time" of an aircraft by providing extra man power for major inspections and repairs. This also provides the MMS mechanic the opportunity to experience foreign mission aviation ministries first hand.
