For the first time in their young lives they are travelling to the vast southern African region.

Their destination is Zambezi, a small town in the west of Zambia - very different from Spokane, their home town in the state of Washington, USA.

A VIPOP - what's that?

A VERY IMPORTANT PIECE OF PAPER - that's what a VIPOP is. And here it is: the Air Operator Certificate, presented to Flying Mission Zambia by the ZCAA, the regulating body for aviation here in Zambia.Receiving the document

 

It has taken 2 and a half years to acquire this certificate and is the 'passport' to more ministry in Southern Africa for Flying Mission Zambia. National changes required Flying Mission to register as a commercial organisation and qualify for the new status. Much paperwork and re-structuring took place at Chilongolo to make it happen.

So, what's taking place at Chilongolo, home of Flying Mission Zambia, these days? It's 'all hands on deck' to complete the hangar project! Every kind of skill is being employed by the team in order to finish this part of the infrastructure and integrate the administration department into the building. Come and see how it is coming along - or, better still, come out and help us!

 

 

Is that a pilot up there with a drill? It could be. This team is versatile.
