Below are a few of the students we worked with over the last couple of years
2008-2009 and 2010 students
Nathan Cain from Woodbury, TN has a call to become a missionary pilot and is nearing completion or his Commercial pilot certificate, he already has his Private with instrument rating and nearly two hundred hours. Nathan has been a lot of help in maintaining our mission planes and property
Geoffrey Combs has been flying with us for several years and is now nearing completion of his Private pilot certificate. Geoffrey believes he has a call to become a missionary pilot someday. Geoffrey's home church has been a great help to our mission by bringing a number of people to work for us here as well as financial partners with us. If you are ever in the St. Robert, MO area on Sunday the St. Robert Church of God will make you welcome and you will be spiritually fed.
Phillip Willis is a professional nurse who works in St. Louis, Phillip has been in training with us for a while as he could. Phillip is a mission oriented young man who wants to serve our Lord in any way he can and wants to become a missionary pilot
Jerry Hurd came from Proclaim Aviation in Minnesota for his tail wheel training and endorsement
Jonathan Koski came for us to help prepare him for his TE (technical evaluation) at JAARS base in Waxhaw, NC after that he will be preparing to go to Nairobi, Kenya where he will be part of the AIM-AIR team. Note from Jonathan: Just wanted to let you know that I passed the TE and am being recommended for service as a mission pilot with AIM-Air I really appreciate our time together. It was probably the best thing I could have done to prepare for the TE. The training you provided, both in the air and on the ground, was just what I needed to get focused on the TE. The setting at Dove Field and CWW was perfect to set the stage for what was to come in Waxhaw! I highly encourage any mission aviation pilot candidate to spend 20 hours with you prior to doing a TE. Sometime this spring I plan to bring our 182 to Dove Field with one, maybe two, pilots who are pursuing mission aviation. Both are A&P, both will be needing tailwheel training and both will need exposure to a setting such as Dove Field and your training program. I am hoping that they might consider CWW.
