I've volunteered at a Brigade Air camp for three consecutive years. It's exciting to see a camper's interest in missionary aviation grow. A first time camper expressed no interest in missionary aviation last year. This year that same camper listed a high interest in missionary aviation on her registration. We at Baptist Park's Flight Camp are eagerly awaiting the day when one or more of our campers choose to serve the Lord as missionary pilots. We are thankful to the Lord for our partnership with Brigade Air and all they do to make it possible.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching campers experience the thrill of their first flight and campers being made aware of the opportunity to serve the Lord in the field of missionary aviation.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its visibility so others could benefit from it, too.

During the early years of Brigade Air, we wondered if we were trying to "water the ocean" or if we were planting needed seed in fertile soil. Immediate results were not visible in terms of our underlying purpose of getting teens to consider mission aviation as an avenue of Christian service and to pursue it as a career choice. It has been gratifying to see some of them, now twenty-somethings, completing their technical and biblical training and moving overseas to serve Christ as pilots and mechanics. It has been worth the time, effort, and dollars to see this happen, and to be part of the team.

I spent a week learning the basics of flight and getting some hands on flight time. It was my first experience flying, and one that I will never forget. It was amazing to fly over northern Maine and see God's incredible creation. I would encourage anyone to participate in a flight camp with Brigade Air.

Ever since my flight camp experience with Brigade Air I have been interested in flying. I hope that sometime in the future I will be able to earn my pilot's license. If it weren't for Brigade Air I probably never would have gotten interested in flying.

I would make it more accesible to more people. It is an incredible program, and one that everyone should be able to enjoy.

I've been involved in Brigade Air for one year as a volunteer pilot. I'm extremely impressed with the coordination involved in developing the five day camp. The need to educate and inspire young adults to consider a missionary career is being answered through this camp. Campers are given the opportunity to see and feel what it’s like to be a missionary pilot. No where else can a fourteen to eighteen year old be exposed to aviation and ministry. I only wish this camp and ministry existed when I was in high school.

If I could make changes to this camp I would expand the camp for allowing more campers in the five day camp. I would expand the types of aircraft offered at the camp to include sea planes and multiengine planes. I would include a maintenance portion to the camp as well.

My week at Brigade Air camp challenged my thinking about missions and provided an amazing opportunity to fly several times during the week. My favorite part of camp was learning how to plot the flight plan on an aeronautical map. I was able to apply concepts I have learned in math to the real world. There was so much taught during the week that I am looking forward to another week at camp this summer. I can testify that Brigade Air camp is not just for boys!!!

I would encourage as many people as possible to support Brigade Air financially, so they can reach more youth every summer.

I have been involved with Brigade Air in many capacities over the years. Starting as a camper in the program, I later served as a leader during a camp and have volunteered many hours in the office. I can attest to the impact of this ministry as it was through a summer camp that I decided to pursue mission aviation as a career. I am currently one semester away from graduating from the foremost mission aviation training school and will be on my way to the mission field shortly thereafter. I am thankful to Bruce Wolff and Brigade Air for the impact this program has had on my life.

I've been involved with this ministry from day one. I helped Bruce with the legal and tax exemption work, in order to formally and correctly organize the ministry. I also happen to be a pilot. I've flown with Bruce, the Director, in Mexico, performing missionary work down there. I can verify that the ministry spends its money wisely and carefully. All monies raised go to the program, with little funds actually supporting the staff - it's a very lean organization. They stretch every dollar. Most importantly, this ministry is introducing young people to the world of missionary aviation. In a day where young people are not interested in the sciences or a commitment to learn to fly, this ministry is literally putting them in the cockpit and encouraging them to consider filling a missionary transportation gap that will reach emergency proportions in the near future.

Sequoia Brigade Camp is an adventure-oriented Christian camp which caters to boys and girls in the western United States. For more than 10 years we have partnered with Brigade Air to provide an aviation experience for young men and women 8th grade and up. There have even been a few fathers who have joined us for the week! Each Aviation camp is located in Sonora, California, using the facilities of a cabin there and the airport at Columbia, California. Because of housing, transportation, and aircraft availability, we max out at 12 campers for a week of the summer. Brigade Air has been a wonderful organization to work with. Their Director, Bruce Wolff, provides the material and expertise to make this a safe, exciting, and educational experience for each of the campers. Comments from campers who have been involved in Brigade Air camp are always positive and encouraging. Although the expenses are quite high, Brigade Air does not charge us what it costs - instead depending on outside sources to continue operating, making the week of camp affordable for each of the participants.

A far better feel of aviation in general, and Mission Aviation in particuler.
