Flight Training Centre – Update
Posted: on October 1, 2014
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our supporters, the new MAF Flight Training Centre is well on its way to being built!
MAF has been training pilots in Australia for more than 50 years.
The Flight Training Centre at Mareeba will give pilots a chance to hone their skills on short difficult strips, navigate mountainous jungle and cope with conditions typical of flying on the mission field.
Other initiatives include: standardisation of MAF International’s pilots for field service, MAF instructor pilot training, and technical evaluation of applicants for MAF’s unique mission.
After a 16-month course, pilots will graduate with around 200 hours of aeronautical experience based on the unique nature of MAF missions.
The building will house flight instructors, students, two lecture rooms, a motion flight-simulator, lounge and bathroom facilities, study and briefing rooms and an operations room to support aircraft movements and flight scheduling.
We still have a way to go to fully fund it – if you’d like to find out more go to:
