It is not uncommon for big challenges to exist on the mission field. At ITEC, we aim to partner with like-minded ministries to solve some of these problems that have been shared with us. When Glen from the International Association of Missionary Aviation (IAMA) told us about the mission aviation safety dilemma of outdated airstrip information, we were curious. The student engineers at the Messiah University Collaboratory took on the project, in tandem with IAMA and ITEC, to test solutions to map and update remote airstrip maps. Their hard work in testing the tool and the mutual support of like-minded ministries combined to provide a solution that we all hope will help protect missionary pilots, their passengers, and their cargo on the field. Join this conversation with Messiah University, IAMA, and ITEC as we discuss this partnership.
