Ethnos360 Aviation, formerly known as NTM Aviation, was founded in 1969 to provide logistical and humanitarian support for New Tribes Mission (now Ethnos360) missionary teams working with unreached people groups in virtually inaccessible areas of the world.

Ethnos360 Aviation has grown to be an international organization providing affordable flight service for Ethnos360 and its affiliates in the remotest regions of Brazil, Asia-Pacific, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines. From its administrative and training headquarters in McNeal, AZ, Ethnos360 Aviation sends fully trained pilots and mechanics, as well as specifically outfitted airplanes and helicopters.

As missionary teams spend the ten to twenty years needed to establish a thriving group of trained believers, Ethnos360 Aviation serves as the supply line to sustain the team. The plane brings food and supplies and provides transportation for the team including taking children back and forth to school, bringing consultants, and providing medevacs when needed.

Ethnos360 Aviation’s flight service also includes transporting commodities for the villagers, flying medical teams, and bringing relief in times of drought and natural disasters. Ethnos360 Aviation played a key role in supplying aid to otherwise unreachable islands devastated by super typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013.

Ethnos360 Aviation operates a variety of aircraft to tailor its services to the missionary teams. The fixed wing fleet includes Quest Kodiaks and Cessna 206s. The rotor wing fleet includes Robinson R44, Robinson R66 and Bell LongRanger helicopters.
