In 2009 God led Andy and Mif to serve with MAF as a pilot family. The adventure has taken us from Melbourne to Arnhem Land, to Kawito and Mount Hagen in Papua New Guinea, and on to the Training Centre in Mareeba, Queensland. Over these years the family has grown to include Theo, Annabelle, Edyn and Norah. Mif works in the local community as well as juggling looking after the kids and supporting Andy in his role.
As the Head of Training, Andy works as a senior flight instructor and is part of the team that manages and directs the Training Centre. The Training Centre seeks to use the 75 years of remote flying experience MAF has gained to develop outstanding bush pilots. We delight in equipping the next generation of mission-pilot families, developing the aviation industry through first-nations training (Australian and International) and sharing our skills and faith with local students. As part of the MAF Flight Operations team we also provide training expertise and support to MAF operational programs around the world.
Looking ahead we see so many exciting opportunities to walk alongside pilots and their families in their season of training and preparation. Please pray that God continues to use us, and that anyone who passes through the training centre is equipped to a high standard and encouraged in their journey with Jesus.
