Overview

The gritty reality and harrowing adventures of JAARS mission aviators and technicians living and working on the edge of the civilized world come to life in this new book by Dane Skelton. Based on a personal trip to the jungles of Southeast Asia and private interviews with the pilots and technicians of JAARS, this book tells it like it is, taking the reader inside the cockpit and into harms way with men and women of deep faith and profound commitment to service through professional excellence. What others are saying: “A harrowing near-crash at a remote airstrip, a deep-jungle rescue mission, a jaguar attack, spiritual warfare, terrorist attack, a mass evacuation in the face of a militant uprising. Who says being a missionary is boring?!? JUNGLE FLIGHT is a compilation of real stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things in service to God. I couldn't put it down. Read it for heart-soaring adventure as well as soul-stirring inspiration.” Professor and Pastor, Dr. Max Anders, author of 30 Days to Understanding the Bible “After 40 years of serving the US space program, I find myself awed by what the men and women of JAARS have done to impact the global ministry of Bible translation. What they do each day requires more than just being made of the right stuff: it takes extraordinary faith in the One who created the mountains they fly over, the people they serve, the One who's guiding their flight from start to finish.” Tom Overton, Multiflow Integration Manager, PH-O Kennedy Space Center, FL

Kipling's fiction about the Jungle pales before the true stories of Jungle Flight. Harrowing life and death adventures cast a new light on the sometimes romanticized lives of missionary pilots and the people they serve, sometimes with antiquated equipment tenuously promising a safe journey. The spiritual provision in desperate situations is awe inspiring, as is the just in time provision of material needs. Anyone who donates to missions will relish this book for a fresh glimpse to what is happening in the field.

This book was very engaging. The real life stories demonstrate God's involvement in our lives and His care for people. I enjoyed the way the author set the stage for the each adventure. The people in the stories were portrayed as real people who live life out like the rest of us.
