ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Science in Missionary Aviation Technology


Building on over 65 years of experience in missionary aviation training, the Bachelor of Science in Missionary Aviation Technology degree program provides graduates with Biblical, Theological and General Studies coursework and the technical training required to prepare them for their vital role in serving the world’s “flying missions.”

Pilot/Mechanics and Maintenance Specialists will train for proficiency using a wide variety of mission-specific equipment, including tailwheel and high performance aircraft.

IC - Number One

Biblical, Theological and General Studies


The first year of the program includes Biblical, Theological, and General Studies courses taken at Moody Bible Institute in Spokane. After completion of the first year, these courses con­tinue throughout the remainder of the program, with modular or semester courses taken simultaneously with technical training.


IC - Number Two

Aviation Maintenance Technology


Following the first year of Biblical, Theological and General Studies courses, each student will begin technical coursework in the Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program. This segment of training provides students with class and lab hours required to take the written, oral and practical exams in the General, Airframe and Powerplant sections of FAA Part 147 training.

Students who successfully pass these exams earn their FAA Airframe and Powerplant Certification and are qualified to work commercially in an aircraft maintenance setting. Students are eligible to enter Advanced Training for Flight or Maintenance only after they have obtained this certification.

The final portion of the program provides major-specific emphasis, either flight or maintenance specialist. The flight and maintenance specialist faculty are comprised of mission agency members and Moody Aviation personnel.

    Hear from experienced faculty and students training to become missionary pilots and mechanics at Moody Aviation in Spokane, Washington.


"When I decided that I wanted to go into mission aviation, I read the book Jungle Pilot, where I was first introduced to an organization called Mission Aviation Fellowship. I contacted their recruiting department and asked where I should get the required training in order to serve with them. They said, 'Hands down, the best place to get mission aviation training is through Moody Bible Institute."
