Missionary pilots to repair homes in BahamasMissionary pilots to repair homes in Bahamas

In the air over the BahamasA missionary group called Bahamas Habitat expects 40 people in 20 general aviation aircraft to fly out to Eleuthera in the Bahamas March 5 to repair homes and other structures needing help. Non-missionary pilots are welcome to join the group.

“What makes this mission opportunity so unique is that the Bahamas are so easily accessible by general aviation aircraft and [the people are] so in need. It provides the ideal opportunity for a mission-minded pilot to give back to a community in need in an exciting and tax deductible way,” said John Armstrong, vice president of Bahamas Habitat and regional manager for Dominion Aircraft Sales.

Bahamas HabitatPilots and crewmembers participating in the March Fly-In & Help Out mission will meet at Fort Pierce Airport (FPR) on Thursday, March 5 for lunch and pilot briefings prior to departing to Eleuthera. Lodging and transportation on the island are arranged for the group. Workers stay at a camp during the four-day event. To learn more, call John Armstrong at 919/349-1492 or send an e-mail.
