Harold Berk and James Lomheim in the disambled Piper Tri-Pacer they were rebuilding
Asas de Socorro The year was 1955. Two young families had recently arrived in Brazil from the United States, the Berks and the Lomheims, sent by Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) with the intent of beginning missionary aviation service in Brazil. They begin with Portuguese language study, and then in 1956, MAF purchased the first plane for use in Brazil - a damaged Piper Tri-Pacer. Harold Berk and James Lomheim rebuilt the airplane in their backyards, and at the end of that year, the first missionary aviation flight in Brazil departed from the city of Cuiaba. In 1957, a new vision was born to train Brazilians to work in the area of missionary aviation. This dream was realized with the opening of the Escola de Aviação Asas de Socorro (Wings of Mercy Aviation School) in 1972, with the first student graduating in 1977.
Today, Asas de Socorro is still providing missionary aviation training as well as aviation services to missionaries and churches in four different cities in northern Brazil. It is staffed primarily by Brazilians, but also has personnel from the US, Germany, Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela.
