UWG Aerial Ministries Inc., an educational support (physical, social, emotional, cognitive, language, and spiritual), for isolated Australians, was set up in 1999. In 2000, a new Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk was purchased.
The ministry of UWG is conducted by volunteers, (pilots, teachers, ministers and others) called to give their time and skills to outreach to the people of the outback, in whatever way they feel called on to assist. VH-UWG, a four seater aircraft is hangared at Avondale Flying School benefiting isolated Australians, in western NSW. Needs in other states are equally as great.
UWG Aerial Ministries Inc., has been set up to outreach to isolated Australians, to assist in as many ways as appropriate and possible, such as;
- Assisting children with learning of all ages – 0-16 onwards. We have teachers in the fields of Early Childhood, English, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry available to assist the various age groups.
- Volunteers ready to communicate with and provide the following services to isolated families: manicures and facials for the ladies who cannot go the great distance to get these comforts; hairdressers; aircraft maintenance engineers; general engineers; gardeners; singers - all of whom are ready to "give back" something to those situated in such remote regions.

MissionUWG Aerial Ministries Inc. is a non-profit charitable organisation which supplies professional volunteers, personnel, resources and gifts to assist and equip families to overcome the barriers and disadvantages encountered by isolation in the Australian outback.
VisionThe enrichment of outback community and family life through overcoming the barriers of isolation, by encouraging families to develop to the maximum of their potential, (as set out in the United Nations Charter).
CORE FOCUS …….. QUALITY, not quantity.
The primary objective of UWG Aerial Ministries is family growth. The current situation is that certain areas need to be addressed rapidly and acted upon as the needs are overwhelming. The women of the outback are generally facing extreme pressure from being so isolated. There is a need for an effective communication system with a view to counselling immediate problems and to gain trust in order to overcome the disadvantages of loneliness, hopelessness, depression and despair.
