Chuck Daly's Review for Brigade Air, Inc.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 4 stars

JAARS has hosted Brigade Air camps for about 7 years. Each year it gets better, and the basic curriculum for the camp and the logistical support Brigade Air provides are an excellent framework for making an event like this happen. At the most recent camp JAARS hosted, one instructor remarked that he considered this “the best camp we’ve ever had,” that it was “a great crew of kids who were listening, thinking, and asking questions that went to the next level.” We hope the young people left at the
end of the week with a greater vision for their future as they were exposed to various aspects of aviation and to the challenges and multifaceted life of a missionary.
