Mission Flight Academy is a non-profit faith based flight school and flying club with a passion to serve our local community and our neighbors south of the boarder. We are located throughout Southern California, but based out of KREI (Redlands) and KEMT (San Gabriel).
Our single purpose is to use the resources He provides to show compassion and serve those in need via aviation.
Owning a plane is out of reach for most . The cost of the plane, insurance, fuel and maintenance can be too costly. By being part of Mission Flight Academy you have access to our fleet of aircraft positioned at KREI (Redlands), KEMT (San Gabriel) and F70 (Murrieta/Temecula). Just book and go...you will feel like you own the plane without the burden.
Our flight training is primarily geared towards using aviation as part of a ministry. We train under part 61, allowing us to tailor a training program to fit your needs and time frame. If you have flight time under Part 141 or elsewhere, we can easily integrate that time to keep costs down and expedite the process.
Mission Flight volunteer pilots are passionate about using General Aviation to serve those in need. Whether you own your aircraft or rent from our flying club, the direct expenses while on a Mission Flight trip are tax deductible (to the extent allowable per your individual circumstances). Additionally, you can receive a "shared fuel expense" reimbursement depending on the mission. This means you get to fly, serve others, receive a tax deduction and a partial fuel reimbursement while building your flight hours - and be a part of a great team of people! Our volunteer pilot team is comprised of retired airline pilots, current commercial / military pilots, flight instructors, and general aviation enthusiasts who are looking for a way to serve.
Our ELEVATE PROGRAM is an exciting scholarship opportunity for youth of the Foster Care System (or those "aged out"). The ELEVATE PROGRAM seeks to promote hope and opportunity for those who have dreamed about becoming a pilot or serving in a career in the aviation industry.
