WHO WE ARE

Flying to thousands more destinations than any airline, Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) operates light aircraft in developing countries so that people in remote areas can receive essential help.

MAF was started in 1945 and today, with over 130 light aircraft in more than 30 countries, every three minutes a MAF plane is taking off or landing somewhere, speeding physical or spiritual care and hope to those living in isolation.

For countless men, women and children cut off by difficult or dangerous terrain, and deprived of basic necessities for a full and healthy life, our planes serve those bringing medical, relief and development services, as well as by sharing the Gospel. MAF works in places where flying is not a luxury but a lifeline.

We are committed to provide a reliable and efficient service and operate according to the highest safety standards and procedures based on many decades of bush flying experience. We work in partnership with indigenous groups, government departments, national churches, evangelists, missions, local aid workers and larger international aid agencies.

Our work is made possible through donations received from individuals, churches and Trusts.
