With dense jungles and unforgiving terrain, flying in the Amazon represents a much more efficient way to travel.
The I-FLY team is a close-knit group of missionary pilots in training that God has called to serve him through aviation. They spend their days in the hangar working on planes to earn their A&P certification and fly at least once-weekly with an instructor to fine tune their skills. We lovingly refer to them as the ITEC Flyboys.
Two members of the I-FLY team have been feeling a unique calling to their home country in the Amazon region. With dense jungles and unforgiving terrain, flying in the Amazon represents a much more efficient way to travel. Flying in this region could also represent the difference between life and death in certain medical evacuations or other emergency scenarios. Most importantly, though, these men are committed to sharing the Gospel with the people they come in contact with.
We invite you to meet this team of missionary pilots, hear their story and calling, and learn more about the I-FLY program.
