In World War II, aircraft were used to create unprecedented death and destruction. As the war drew to a close, Christian air force pilots from Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and America, all began to have the same thought: “Why can’t aircraft now be used to bring life and hope”
From here, Mission Aviation Fellowship was born. Its vision was simple and wonderfully ambitious: to use aircraft so that isolated communities across the world would be physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.
What started off as a dream is now a global movement, with around 140 aircraft serving 2000 chruches, missions and agencies, in over 25 countries worldwide. Thousands of remote communities now have access to healthcare, education, community development, disaster relief and the good news of Jesus Christ.
A lot has happened over the 70 years since MAF was formed, but through all the social change, developments in technology and aviation, MAF’s mission remains relevant: To share God’s love through aviation and technology, so that people have access to help and hope.
