In World War II, light aircraft were used to unleash unprecedented death and destruction. As the war drew to a close, Christian airforce pilots from Australia, New Zealand, England, America and South Africa all began to have the same thought:

Why can’t these aircraft now be used to bring life and hope during peace time?

From here, Mission Aviation Fellowship was born. The vision was simple and wonderfully ambitious: to see isolated people changed by the love of Christ

And today that’s exactly what happens.

What started off as the dream of a couple of Christian airforce pilots is now a global movement with around 120 aircraft serving in over 27 countries worldwide. Tens of thousands of remote communities now have access to healthcare, education, community development, disaster relief and the Good News of Jesus Christ.

As you’ll read below, a lot has happened over the 75 years since MAF was formed, but through the change, through all the developments in technology and aviation practices, the heart of MAF has stayed the same: sharing God’s love through aviation and technology.

The Next 75…

In many ways we’re just getting started. Your prayers, donations and advocacy put us in the air.

Every flight we make continues to bring the transformation envisaged all those years ago.
