JAARS provides aviation support, transportation and information services to speed the task of Bible translation around the world. Twenty-four JAARS sponsored aircraft currently operate in 7 different countries, including new programs added in 2014 in Australia and Tanzania.
JAARS helps its partners start and run flight programs by training and sending staff, setting standards, equipping aircraft and more. Safe, dependable flight service allows Bible translation, literacy, community development and health education to flourish in locations that would otherwise remain inaccessible. Service to host nations can occasionally include disaster relief flying, search and rescue and environmental survey.
