About Us


PMA is a 501 (c) 3 organization, both recognized in Guam, Territory of U.S.A. and with the IRS, U.S.A. All donations are tax-deductible under section 501 (c) 3.

Pacific Mission Aviation (PMA) is a non-profit, non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical help, meeting the needs of the total person in the islands of Micronesia and the Philippines with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son Jesus Christ.  All of our pilots and mechanics are missionaries who serve with the mission.  We believe that a missionary is called by God to serve and come with a desire to show God’s love to all those we serve.  Once a missionary is accepted by PMA, they must go find partners who will commit to support them on a monthly basis.  All donations sent to PMA for that missionary are tax deductible.  Once the missionary reaches 100% of their required support, they can then move to their field of service.  PMA is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).

Each of PMA’s bases has dedicated local staff who are employed by the mission.  Our operations would not be effective if not for these committed employees.  Our purpose in all our work is to glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to show His love to all those we come in contact with.  Our aviation branch of PMA is serving the people of Micronesia on a practical level, tending to their physical needs and being available in times of crisis.  But we also know that good deeds will not save people’s souls.  They need to know Christ on a personal level.  And for that, we have our Pacific Mission Fellowship Church (PMF).  This is the ministry of PMA that is on the front lines; to share the Gospel and reach people for CHRIST.  Our pastors and church workers are actively reaching out to the community, leading Bible Studies and guiding people to a closer walk with Jesus, teaching and discipling people to be able to reach others for Christ as well.

PACIFIC MISSION AVIATION

Pacific Mission Aviation had begun in the Republic of Palau in 1996 with its church ministry: Pacific Mission Fellowship.  Edmund Kalau had built a multi-purpose center for the church venue and a community outreach base. To this day it is called the “Kalau Gym.”  It wasn’t until 2012, when Governor Meltel-Gates of Angaur State, made a special request for PMA to serve her island people via aviation services.  There is a large open ocean channel between Angaur Island and the other islands of Palau, which makes access difficult if not impassible during the trade wind season or in stormy weather.  The Governor knew PMA and our long history of serving the islands of Yap with medical evacuations, rescue and relief, and transportation. She wished for PMA to come do the same in Angaur. 

PMA began services with a Britten-Norman Islander aircraft.  After the Islander served for one year, PMA acquired another aircraft: Cessna 206 to make the flights more economical.  After another year, PMA acquired a second Cessna 206, so that services would not be interrupted when one aircraft needed maintenance.  In May 2016, an MOU was signed between the Republic of Palau and Pacific Mission Aviation to provide medevac services, sea searches, disaster relief and aerial surveillance.   With that agreement, we were awarded a plot of land to lease next to the airport to build a hangar facility.  In June 2018, construction began.  Now, 2020 – we are in the last stages of construction, working on the final touches inside the building.

In addition to providing transportation, and medevac services to the islands of Angaur and Peleliu, PMA also began flying scenic aerial tours for tourists.  There were several reasons for this.  The flights would provide revenue which would subsidize the flights for the local Palauans that PMA served, and support free medical evacuations, rescue and relief services. 

OUR HISTORY

In January of 1956, Pastor Edmund Kalau and his wife Elizabeth started serving as missionaries in Palau and Yap (Micronesia). Pastor Kalau made numerous trips to the outer-islands with the then U.S. Trust Territory-operated field trip ships. On nearly all trips, sick people were taken aboard to be transported to the district center hospitals, but because of the long distances and slowness of the ships, many patients died en route….
