About us


MAF uses plane to transform the lives of the world's most isolated people in need.

We are a lifeline to thousands of isolated communities.

Imagine if your community had no roads and little access to the outside world.

How would you or your family reach a doctor if you're sick or injured? How can you receive an education or job opportunities?

This is the reality for millions of people.

Jungles, mountains, swamps, insecurity and a dilapidated infrastructure are all barriers to receiving physical and spiritual care and a hope for the future.

That’s why we fly.

We are a Christian mission organisation that uses planes to overcome these barriers. Our pilots and personnel deliver relief workers, doctors, pastors, school books, food, medicines - everything that can only be safely and speedily delivered by air.

With an MAF plane taking off or landing every three minutes, the need is huge. Will you partner with us?

Together, we can transform lives. We fly:

To save time

We save charities, aid workers, doctors and pastors valuable time by avoiding treacherous terrain.

An arduous 2-day overland trip becomes a short 20-minute MAF flight.

Time to resolve emergency situations, whether it's someone who's seriously ill or villagers affected by a natural disaster.

To save lives

MAF flights transform lives.

A curable illness can become fatal with no access to healthcare. A medical emergency can result in death.

In many communities, MAF planes are the only way to receive lifesaving care.

To Reach the unreachable

Dense rainforests, jagged mountains and poor infrastructure mean air travel is the only way to reach hundreds of communities.

That’s our mission field.

Isolated people who are otherwise forgotten.

To ensure safe travel

It’s not just potholes the size of cars, roads thick with mud or precarious bridges.

In many areas where we fly, political instability, tribal unrest, bandits and landmines pose a real threat.

Our planes overcome these dangerous barriers, enabling our passengers to reach their destination safely.

To empower communities

Isolation is a big factor in keeping millions across the developing world in poverty.

MAF is a bridge between remote villages and those in the outside world who are able to support them.

The result? Children are educated. Jobs and new skills are created. Coffee beans are flown to the market. Hope is given.

To bring the gospel

MAF goes to the ends of the earth to help Christians ‘go and make disciples of all nations’.

Remote people can hear about God's love. Bible translators can reach remote areas. Christian workers have a dependable lifeline.

Lives are transformed in Christ’s name.
