As a Christian flight college, we prepare our graduates to live out God's calling for their lives in aircraft and hangars around the globe. Our Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Science with a Mission Aviation Concentration will specifically prepare you to use your love of airplanes to help spread the gospel as a missionary aviator. You'll span borders to fly into some of the most remote landing strips in the world and make a tangible difference in countless lives.
LeTourneau University's Christian pilot training program prepares you to fly, inspect and repair your plane in jungles, deserts... wherever the Lord leads you. When you graduate with a Mission Aviation Concentration of Aeronautical Science, you’ll have about 220 flight hours - Some of those hours will be in our multiengine airplanes, and around 20 will be in our Cessna 206 single engine aircraft. With our modern fleet, you'll also be prepared to fly the high-tech turbine aircraft that are quickly replacing older airplanes on the mission field.
At LETU, our mission pilot preparation is about more than just technical training. Our mission aviation concentration involves extensive hands-on learning experience in an authentic Christian flight school environment. During a mission aviation "vision trip", you will experience cross-cultural missions firsthand with a mission aviation organization.
