AERO Fleet

See what's flying at AERO Missions

While an airplane is certainly a key part in our ministry, it is simply a tool by which the Gospel can be carried to those who've yet to hear.  Our focus must remain on the eternal mission at hand.

AERO Missions bases its flight operations at the Sylacauga Municipal Airport (KSCD) and utilizes all nearby municipal, county, and international airports for training.  Our current fleet consists of a 2006 Piper Saratoga II HP, a 1966 Cessna 172-G, and a 1966 Cessna 182-J.  Our development plan includes acquiring additional aircraft to be used for training needs, as well as aircraft that will serve our missionary pilots on their fields.

-  Avidyne 5000 Avionics Suite

-  Dual Garmin 430Ws

-  S-Tec 55X Autopilot

-  6 Seats with intercom system

-  Leather Interior

-  Air-conditioned

-  1120 lb. Useful Load

The Saratoga, on lease from a ministry supporter, provides us a platform for offering training toward any rating, as well as the high-performance and complex endorsements.  The Avidyne avionics and 430Ws also afford us the opportunity to teach advanced systems.

Aircraft Management

AERO Missions seeks to maintain a fleet of aircraft for the purposes of missionary pilot training and mission field service. This feature of AERO Missions alleviates total responsibility on part of the missionary for an aircraft being used in their ministry.  Should the aviation needs of the missionary change and the aircraft needs to be upgraded (or removed), our ministry stands by to assist in these situations.

While an aircraft is in mission field service, the missionary pilot and his ministry assume a shared responsibility with AERO Missions for the general operating expenses of the aircraft.  Additionally, we will assist as able in maintaining the aircraft.

For inquiries regarding our ministry fleet or for any considerations on donating an aircraft to the fleet, please contact our office by phone at (850) 610-0448 or by email at
