MAF

Mission Aviation Fellowship

MAF are a dynamic Christian organisation operating more than 130 aircraft in around 25 countries in the developing world. Flying across hostile environments, reaching the world’s most isolated people.

MAF partner with over 1,000 organisations to bring physical and spiritual care to those who need it most, providing flights and logistical support for their outreach to communities in developing nations.

These missions include aid agencies, missions, relief and development organisations, government departments, local churches and other national groups. Their work covers healthcare, emergency relief, development and the bringing of God's word.

Zoar's link with MAF is through Sarah, one of our church members, whose father was a MAF pilot.

Church

MAF seek to promote the growth of the church, working with indigenous churches and groups to enable spiritual outreach.

They also support the work of many visiting churches as they encourage fledgling churches or those who have suffered persecution.

For example, in Guatemala they support a Bible teaching programme, training those who lead congregations in the villages. And in Arnhem Land we provide flights for local Aboriginal ministers, enabling them to share the Gospel in remote areas.

The planes

Every three minutes, one of MAF's planes in our fleet of more than 130 light aircraft is taking off or landing somewhere in the developing world.

The conditions of the airfields that we take off or land at are best described as 'arduous'. This means that we must use the right tools for the job, and skill and maintenance are required to keep our light aircraft operational in the toughest conditions.
