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.
