About us


What We Do

​Samaritan Aviation operates the only floatplane in Papua New Guinea, the second largest island in the world.  We currently serve in the East Sepik Province whose population is estimated at 500,000. We serve those living in the East Sepik through emergency evacuation flights, medicine delivery, disaster relief and community health programs.


Why We Do It

Samaritan Aviation exists to demonstrate God’s love by providing aviation and medical services in remote areas. Eighty percent of the residents within the East Sepik Province live in remote areas without access to the one hospital in this province. 220,000 of those residents live along a large river called the Sepik. Samaritan Aviation is providing access to critical medical care and health services that in most cases might not otherwise be available.


How We Do It

Sharing Christ’s love, saving lives, impacting communities and providing access and hope to the poor and forgotten would not be possible without donations from people like you. Samaritan Aviation is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization and is funded through private donations.​ In Papua New Guinea, Samaritan Aviation successfully partners with a number of organizations in order to effectively and efficiently provides these services. Examples of these organizations include: The Provincial Government, Catholic Health Services, Area Medical distribution store, Pacific Islands Ministries, SDA Medical Outreach, Save the Children Australia, and Oxfam Australia and Heart to Heart International.


Our Statement of Faith

1. The divine inspiration of the Bible; the Bible is inerrant in all things necessary to salvation and is of supreme and final authority in faith and practice.

2. One Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. The deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, perfect life, redeeming death, bodily resurrection, heavenly intercession, and the expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.

4. The creation of man in the divine image, man’s subsequent fall through sin, resulting in universal guilt and depravity; and the necessity, therefore, of redemption and restoration.

5. The personality of the Holy Spirit by Whose regenerative work sinful man is born again, and by whose indwelling regenerate man is enabled to live a godly life.

6. The bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

7. The spiritual unity of all believers as comprising the true Church, which has the duty to preach the Gospel to every creature.
