Agape Flights Inc. is a Christian aviation ministry transporting continuous and critical supplies to over 300 missionaries, their families and their missions throughout Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas. Agape is committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through the missionaries it serves.
Our purpose is scripturally aligned with our mission statement where the apostle Paul gives us a clear picture of God's desire for us to supply the needs of the saints. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of saints, but is also overflowing in many acts of thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:12. With that clear mandate, we are committed to continuous and critical support of our missionaries, their families and their unique missions.
Nearly thirteen million people live in the areas regularly reached by Agape's flights to Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. The critical supplies transported to over 300 missionaries, their families, and their missions are used to change lives, one person at a time.

We fly so missionaries:
Can rest assured: One phone call is all it takes. From poisonous snakes to civil wars, missionaries in remote places can find themselves in need of immediate care. With one phone call AIM AIR can immediately begin an evacuation response – swiftly delivering an airplane to their backyard, ready to carry them to safety.
Stay Focused: Maximizing ministry time. When we deliver essential supplies, provide technology assistance, or repair a vehicle between flights, missionaries do not have to be distracted from their most important work. They can focus on people instead of problems.
Go the Distance: Serve longer and go farther. With the airplane as a lifeline, missionaries are no longer limited by time and distance. They become free to deepen relationships and impact hearts with the love of Christ so entire communities' change.

Impacting Remote Alaska with the Hope of Jesus Christ through Mission Aviation
Across the vast roadless wilderness of Alaska are hundreds of isolated villages where Americans live in third-world conditions. The rich native culture has been overwhelmed by rampant alcoholism, teen suicide, joblessness, and spiritual darkness.
The inhospitable terrain, depressing isolation, high cost of living, inadequate housing, bitter weather, and winter darkness only serve to compound the rapidly changing cultural standards.
Fostering true change is difficult for many villages due to the lack of connecting roads. Exposure and access to Christian influence and care is likewise limited and sadly, women and children are affected the most.
Less than 100 villages have any established evangelical church, pastor, or missionary presence, and many have no followers of Jesus Christ. When there is a pastor or missionary in the village, they are also isolated and cutoff from the normal spiritual and support networks typically afforded other Christian workers.
Pastors and missionaries in village churches are fighting an uphill battle to share Christ in meaningful ways to an increasingly hard-to-reach population.
Missionary Aviation Repair Center (MARC) has provided a lifeline of hope to these villages, strengthened the ministry of Christians, and expanded the reach of the Gospel across the Alaskan frontier since 1964.
Today, MARC has a fleet of airplanes that fly throughout western Alaska and even across the Bering Sea into eastern Russia. We provide affordable transportation services, training, and quality airplane maintenance for mission organizations through our own internal staff of missionary families who raise their own financial support to serve with MARC. We're privileged to serve God here.

SMAT exists to glorify God by providing professional aviation training to a high standard that equips individuals to serve God and others through aviation. This is done in a Christ-centered environment with mission-focused 12-month aviation training programs in both aviation maintenance and flight.
For a missionary aviation candidate, the technical training for flight and maintenance skills is sometimes the simplest part of his/her overall required preparation to serve. Many other factors emerge along the journey to serving fulltime in missionary aviation. These factors are equally as vital and, if not addressed properly, can be disqualifying. At SOAR, we are committed to addressing these factors with our comprehensive approach in preparing missionary candidates allowing them to transition directly to their future mission aviation sending agency. Our seamless pathway to missions along with practical maintenance and flight experience is supported by a financial model that avoids debt. Debt can frequently delay or derail those trying to get to the mission field. As we like to say, "It's from SOAR to the Mission Field!".
