Over the summer Frank and two other NTMA pilots had the opportunity to fly the helicopter up to Ontario, Canada. No, this is not something one would normally do in a helicopter.

We have now been in PNG for a year and 3 months. The time has literally flown by. It is such a great privilege to be a part of the team that is planting churches amongst remote people groups. As a pilot I get to see the missionaries who are working in the remote tribes […]nothing?

This has been a shift in our original plans based on the request of NTM Aviation to meet a specific need in the Asia-Pacific region.
