BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MISSIONARY AVIATION TECHNOLOGY
Flight emphasis students will complete the first year of Biblical, Theological and General Studies credits through Moody Bible Institute—Spokane.
During the second and third years, the student will log the 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, while continuing in concurrent Biblical, Theological and General Studies courses.
In the final two years, the student will complete the Biblical, Theological and General Studies requirements and qualify to earn their FAA Private Pilot License, their Instrument rating and Commercial Pilot Certificate. A transition to high performance aircraft exposes students to the challenges associated with mission-field flying and seeks to develop the judgment, skill and overall airmanship required to fly successfully in a wide variety of contexts.
The required internship occurs any time after the completion of 60 course credits. The purpose is to allow students to serve short-term in a missions, aviation and cross-cultural context – confirming their fit in this exciting and rewarding field of service. Applicants for this major must qualify for FAA Class II Medical Certificate prior to acceptance to Flight Training.
Applicants for the Missionary Aviation Technology major must complete standard Moody Bible Institute—Spokane admissions procedures. The completion of standardized tests may be required for admittance into the technical training portion of the program. College, seminary or Bible school graduates are eligible to apply.
Such applicants must provide verification of having earned at least 15 semester credit hours of approved Bible coursework from an accredited school. Students deficient in Bible credits may satisfy the required coursework at Moody Bible Institute—Spokane.
