United Missionary Air Training and transport, with headquarters at the University of Dayton, will put a second plane into service in Africa later this year, according to an announcement from UMATT officials.

The plane, a Cessna 185, will be used to transport supplies and personnel to missionary stations.

John W. St. Andre of East Douglas, Mass., is now completing his training here and will go to Africa to fly the new plane.

UMATT is an interfaith venture that has flown over 150,000 miles last June serving medical workers, missionaries, Peace Corps workers and the people of the newly emerging African nations.

The organization’s first aircraft was placed in service last year.
