Aztec Upgrades Campaign

Arctic Barnabas Ministries Inc

Here’s an opportunity for you—make it fly! The Piper Aztec (one of our main aircraft) makes it possible for ABM staff to carry out our mission and vision by making more flights to remote villages, even in adverse weather conditions. The Aztec needs an engine rebuilt as it approaches the “time before overhaul” limit of 2000 hours. Please consider how you can help. The complete engine overhaul and avionics upgrades anticipated cost is $69,500. Gracious donors already contributed $22,000 toward this project, so the engine has been removed from the airplane, shipped out and awaits the final funding before the overhaul proceeds.

Arctic Barnabas Ministries’ vision is Healthy, thriving leaders leading healthy, thriving ministries, but ABM faces the challenge of travel by air to serve ministry families who live in remote Arctic villages off the road system. The geography, terrain, and absence of connecting roads in remote Alaska and Northern Canada demand the use of airplanes. ABM’s Aviation Department operates its hangar and a small fleet of bush aircraft. These tools make it possible for our staff to connect and care for ministry families who live off the road system.
