Ethnos360 Aviation’s current fleet in the Philippines is too small and limited to further the expansion of church planting in remote locations throughout the country.
Replacing a fixed-wing Cessna 185 with a Robinson R66 helicopter would bring more capabilities and flexibility. For example, an airplane needs a landing strip, while a helicopter can use a small clearing. This is valuable for serving nomadic peoples, as well as providing relief after disasters. Also, a Cessna 185 uses hard-to-find and expensive aviation gasoline; the Robinson R66 runs on readily available and relatively inexpensive jet fuel.
The R66’s versatility and ability to haul larger loads than the Cessna would enable it to serve both long- and short-term ministries and community development projects without the need for an airstrip. Many of the easier places to access have been reached in the Philippines. With an R66 we hope to reach the areas that been physically unreachable.
