MAF TRACK - A PATHWAY TO WORKING WITH MAF.

Encouraging, inspiring and assisting you in your journey towards working with MAF.

If you are passionate about aviation and would like to pursue the possibility of joining MAF’s worldwide ministry, MAFTRACK might be for you!  DOWNLOAD THE BROCHURE

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN WORKING WITH US.

It takes someone special to be a MAF pilot. Due to the variety of situations you would face, your technical skills will have to be of the highest standard.

But more than this, you will need to be able to combine strong decision-making and relationship-building skills with a positive approach to getting the job done. You would be on the front line of sharing the good news of God’s Kingdom to the isolated communities we serve. 

We know that getting to the mission field may seem like a formidable process. We also recognise that you—like every person who applies to join MAF—come with your own life experiences, levels of training and aviation knowledge. There are technical, financial and personal goals that need to be identified and accomplished. 

MAF New Zealand wants to stand alongside you to encourage, inspire and assist in your journey towards MAF! In order to do this, we have developed MAFTRACK, an individually tailored pathway towards a potential career with MAF. 

If you do not yet have the minimum required pilot licences, Bible training or ministry skills to be acceptable for MAF service, but do desire to enter into a guided programme of training and preparation so that full acceptance as a MAF candidate can be achieved MAFTRACK might be for you.

MAFTRACK IS AN INDIVIDUALLY TAILORED PROGRAMME

Wherever you are along the path, applying for MAFTRACK begins with an assessment of where you currently stand in terms of aviation training, life experience, accademic background, cross cultural exposure and your faith-journey. Together we look at what further training and personal development you will need to join MAF overseas. Then we put a plan into place to help you get there!

MAFTRACK partners with other organisations, including your local church, to purposely develop the practical skills you need.

Depending on what you need to accomplish, your MAFTRACK will include a combination of:

  • Aviation & technical training
  • Cross cultural & missions exposure
  • Spiritual development
  • Personal growth

MAFTRACK WILL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE

If you don’t yet have flight training—but do have 100% enthusiasm to track towards MAF—the focus will be on mentoring to keep your enthusiasm and vision alive. We can help with making the best choices in terms of Bible College, Flight Training and overseas missions experience. 

If you are further along the path and have already achieved your Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL), your next step will be a Flight Assessment before completing the rest of the qualifications required for a Commercial Pilot’s Licence (CPL). MAFTRACK will put a strategic plan into place to help you stay focused and working towards your goal.

If you passionate about using your skill in aviation for His Kingdom—and ready to put a plan into place to achieve your goals—contact us about applying for a MAFTRACK. Contact us full details. 

* Please note that applying for a MAFTRACK does not guarantee that you will one day fly for MAF.
