Service Oriented Aviation Readiness (S.O.A.R.) a 501(c)(3), Missouri Non-Profit Corporation, is located in Bolivar, MO at the Bolivar Municipal Airport (M17). The primary purpose of S.O.A.R. is the training and education of aviation mechanics and pilots for mission aviation. Through its curriculum, programs, and supervised-experience training, students are prepared and qualified for the progression of testing and certifications. A distinctive attribute of S.O.A.R. is that the organization leverages an energized local pilot population and community engaged at a municipal airport to help their students continue a “pay-it-forward” philosophy through which many of the previous generation of pilots were taught to fly.
The mission of S.O.A.R. is to provide the tenants, visitors, and customers of the Bolivar Municipal Airport a great environment to enjoy general and/or corporate aviation with all the necessary services, while providing a great working environment for our students who are getting the required education, training, and experience to serve in full-time missions as a mission pilot and/or mechanic.
