If you have a background in aviation and quality management, this role with AIM AIR could be for you.
Missionaries have plenty to deter and distract them from their ministries. Living in remote and isolated areas, they are cut off from essential supplies, far from family and good medical care, and exposed to political instability. They have no quick lifeline to the rest of the world. One phone call to AIM AIR is all it takes. From poisonous snakes to civil wars, AIM AIR can immediately begin an evacuation response – swiftly delivering a plane to a missionary’s back garden, ready to carry them to safety. With AIM AIR available as a lifeline, missionaries are no longer limited by time and distance. The become free to deepen relationships and impact hearts with the love of Christ, to focus on people, not problems.
AIM AIR’s main base of operation is at Wilson Airport in Nairobi, Kenya. A flight and maintenance programme is housed there, as well as administrative offices. Team members live in various locations throughout the city of Nairobi. There is also a remote base in Arua, Uganda that is positioned closer to missionaries that work further away from Nairobi.
