Pilot/Mechanic Samaritan's Purse East Africa

Samaritan's Purse is looking for a Pilot/Aircraft Mechanic to serve full time with its East Africa aviation team to be based in South Sudan. They currently operate the following aircraft types from their main base in Eldoret, Kenya: DC-3T, King Air 200, and Cessna Grand Caravan.

The most important quality they are looking for is a heart to serve the Lord. They want a person who has felt God's leading to use their gifts, skills, and abilities in aviation to reach hurting people in remote parts of the world with the love and gospel of Jesus Christ. Days often begin early and end late, uniforms get dirty loading aircraft, the landing zones and accommodations are rough, and the environment austere. What they do is expeditionary aviation. Why they do it, more than anything else, will determine whether or not you should apply.

Minimum requirements:
  • Maintains a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and is a consistent witness for Jesus Christ.
  • Maintain current aviation first class medical certificate and valid pilot's license (SEL & MEL) and FAA Airframe and Powerplant Certificate
