Samaritans Purse Pilot Jobs in Kenya

Job Description

Samaritan’s Purse aircraft based in Eldoret provide support to our work in Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries.

Roads into the areas where we work, if they exist at all, are rough to say the least during the dry season and impassable during the rainy season.

In addition, significant security concerns-related to a bloody civil conflict-make some roads unsafe at any time. That’s why aviation is so important to our mission.

Pilots may be assigned to more than one aircraft type. Additionally, for programs such as East Africa, current base location(s) should not be assumed to be final; flexibility may be required. Incumbent will perform the following duties.

Essential Duties

  • Ability to obtain a first class medical and maintain at least a second class medical certificate and valid pilot's license (commercial minimum).
  • Performs pilot duties as needed or assigned.
  • Files flight plans as needed or assigned.
  • Obtains weather data and interprets data based on flight plan.
  • Completes aircraft weight and balances for flights.
  • Loads and unloads passenger's luggage and cargo in aircraft.
  • Keeps assigned aircraft charts and software updated.
  • Keeps the aircraft clean, neat, and polished when home and away from the home base including sanitizing the aircraft restroom facilities after each flight.
  • Assists in the maintenance, repair, and cleaning of SP hangar and property.
  • Performs pre-flights and post-flights to ensure safety of flight.
  • Works with the FAA as assigned.
  • Represents Samaritan’s Purse as a professional when dealing with donors, government officials, and others.
  • Assists with office duties and other duties as assigned.
  • Aircrew should expect to overnight away from
    home base approximately 35% of the time.
  • Personnel should anticipate many of the locations being austere with few amenities.
  • Showers, a hot meal, and even a bed may not be available. Sleeping in the aircraft may at times be required.
  • Be willing and comfortable working in remote environments, with little support structure, often in unstable areas or war zones.
  • When humanitarian crisis arise, it may be necessary to temporarily deploy away from the home base for several weeks, and even up to 30 days at a time.
  • Attend daily morning devotions and participate in prayer support for the ministry, its donors and volunteers.
  • Maintain a strong Christian witness to colleagues, vendors, charitable beneficiaries, and the general public.
  • Assess, manage, and report critical physical, emotional, or spiritual concerns of supervised staff.

    Education and/or Experience
  • Fifth year college or university program certificate; or two to four years related experience and/or training; or equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Twelve credit hours of college-level Biblical studies strongly preferred.
  • Competitive Salary with Full Benefit Package
