Mission Statement: Sharing the love of Jesus Christ through aviation and technology so that isolated people may be physically and spiritually transformed.
Using aviation and technology, MAF shares the love of Jesus Christ by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of isolated people in 42 countries throughout Asia, Africa, Eurasia and Latin America.
Evangelization and Church Nurture
Missionary pilot-mechanics fly over dense jungles, mountains, and deserts, providing a way to reach isolated people. Missions organizations and indigenous church leaders depend on MAF to bring them to and from remote villages, where traveling by foot would take days or even weeks. Precious travel time is saved so that more time can be devoted to evangelizing, Bible translation, and more.
MAF transports doctors and nurses-along with much-needed medical supplies-to treat people that otherwise would have difficult or no access to medical help. Daily, MAF is called on to perform “medevacs”-medical evacuations-delivering critically injured or ill people to hospitals and saving lives.
After disasters, MAF is there to transport relief workers and deliver food and other desperately needed supplies. Where roads have been destroyed by earthquakes or floods, MAF is able to overcome those obstacles and bring aid to where it’s needed most.
By transporting workers and supplies, MAF supports community development projects. Communities and lives are transformed by MAF support of solar energy projects, well digging projects, agricultural programs, and other development initiatives. In some locations, MAF provides communications services, such as email, HF/VHF radios, and VSAT broadband internet access.
Training and Development of Indigenous People
MAF provides distance learning technologies to help train indigenous pastors who otherwise would not have access to biblical teaching or leadership training. Through partnerships with other organizations, MAF supplies digital biblical reference and study materials, helps establish learning centers, and provides cutting-edge learning solutions that support the growth of the church. In addition, MAF trains indigenous people to become aircraft mechanics, bookkeepers, and communication specialists at MAF bases.
