    Department Welcome

    Dear Student,
    Determining where you will attend college is one of the biggest decisions you will make, and evaluating the options available to you in light of the vision and gifts with which God has blessed you is an important step in the decision-making process. We are excited that Moody Aviation comes to mind as you are seeking the Lord's direction for your future!  

    Moody Aviation exists to equip God's servants to advance the cause of Christ in world missions through aviation technologies. This is accomplished by personal, relational and spiritual development integrated with technical training.

    Today the need for missionary pilots and mechanics is greater than ever, making possible the work of Bible translation, church planting, disaster relief, emergency aid and transportation to the most remote regions of our world. In fulfilling the Lord's commission to take the gospel to the ends of the earth, Moody Aviation students are being equipped with focused technical training integrated with biblical instruction that emphasizes the spiritual formation of the missionary aviator.

    Those who are called to share in the exciting work of mission aviation look forward with eager anticipation to watching the light of Christ dawn in dark places as the news of Christ's love reaches the ends of the earth for the very first time.

    If you are considering the call to mission aviation, we encourage you to contact us for more information.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Serving Him,
    Cecil Bedford

  • "I did quite a bit of research and decided that, if I was serious about missionary aviation, Moody was the place to go. As far as missionary aviation schools go, Moody has the longest history, the best reputation, highly-qualified instructors with field experience, and they've already trained over half of the missionary pilots in the world. Once I visited the program, my mind was made up. I've never looked back."
