The new helicopter will help to reach more people with the good news of Jesus Christ

Naijauto gathered that this new acquisition is the first aircraft he's buying with his own resources, outside church resources. Winners Chapel, which reports of having 11,000 branches planted in 65 countries, already has a Challenger 605 aircraft purchased with the sum of $25 million via Dominion Aviation Center.

While addressing pastors at a recent gathering, Bishop Oyedepo disclosed that the new helicopter is already in the country and that it can fly from Lagos to Abuja or from Lagos to Maiduguri and back to Lagos and it won't be needing a refuel stop. Our investigation revealed that the helicopter is at a seaport in Lagos, undergoing clearance. After that, it will find its way to the church hangar.

Bishop Oyedepo acquired the aircraft with his own money, not from the church resources

Based on the Bishop's assertion about how the new aircraft covering a longer distance before needing a refuel, there’re speculations that it could be from Italy and also manufactured by Leonardo Helicopters.

The Church is known to have acquired aircraft in the past for missionary work. Each aircraft is replaced with a new one when it gets older to enable them to ease the cost of servicing and maintaining them.
