The purpose of our Plane Faith Takeoff Grants is to offer flight training repayment grants to prospective missionary pilots. These are missionary pilots who have completed their flight training and have been accepted for service by an approved mission aviation organization. Flight training is expensive and the debt that is incurred during the years of training and preparation often becomes a barrier that delays, and in some cases prevents, many prospective missionary pilots from reaching the mission field.
Our desire at Plane Faith is to remove this barrier by awarding grants that cover the monthly flight training loan payments for missionary pilots for as long as they serve on the mission field. This allows missionary pilots to arrive on the mission field soon after completing their training, and to serve without the stress of debt hanging over their head.
