Mission Aviation Fellowship is an international Christian organisation whose mission is to fly light aircraft and to use other technology to bring help and hope to people in some of the world’s most isolated communities. Every four minutes a MAF plane is taking off or landing somewhere in the world to assist missions, churches, aid and development agencies, and other local groups to transform lives and share the love of God.
MAF has operated in Papua New Guinea continuously since 1951, serving remote communities through aviation. Using our Cessna Caravan, C208 aircraft we are able to overcome the physical barriers that prevent people in Papua New Guinea from having access to healthcare, education, safe water and the Gospel, helping to bring physical and spiritual healing to the isolated people of this country. We serve the local communities, local church groups, missionaries, NGOs, development and relief agencies, and government departments who are working to change the lives of those living in remote areas.
Our vision is to see isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name by sharing God’s love through aviation and technology.
What started off as the dream of a couple of Christian airforce pilots is now a global movement with around 135 aircraft serving in over 26 countries worldwide.
