Aviation Ministry hopes to launch first Christian airline in 2021
An aviation ministry based in Shreveport named Judah 1 is planning to make the world’s first Christian airline next year to transport large teams of missionaries and their cargo across the globe.
“We give wings to missionaries. The Great Commission tells us we go to all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature,” Everett Aaron, Judah 1 founder and president explained to CBN News.
While the ministry currently transports missionaries onto the mission field, a commercial fleet would be able to carry larger teams and cargo.
“We’re able to get out into the mission field to take smaller teams, twelve to ten member teams taking them into the field,” Aaron noted.
“But in the future, once we get our certification, the 125 certifications for the large plane, then we can carry the larger teams of up to 136 with our MP83 and 17,000 pounds of cargo and, of course, we can go anywhere with those.”
