About MAF

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is a global movement. Our Christian ministry started in 1945 when a group of Second World War pilots were brought together with a shared vision to use their aviation skills for help rather than harm while spreading the transformational love of Jesus Christ.

Now for countless communities across the world, the sight and sound of one of our small aeroplanes arriving symbolises hope. It may be bringing with it vaccinations, food, school books, mosquito nets, building materials, bibles translated into a mother tongue or the best chance of reaching urgent medical attention.

Our fleet of aeroplanes transforms days on foot across inhospitable terrain or treacherous hours on a boat into minutes in the air. Doctors, teachers, relief and development workers, church and mission teams, government officials, even local produce growers could not do their jobs without MAF.

We work closely with a phenomenal network of partners to ensure practical, medical and spiritual care is delivered in places with the deepest need.
