THE AIRCRAFT THAT MAF FLIES.

MAF flies the aircraft best suited to local conditions and needs of the communities we serve.

MAF Maintains a fleet appropriate to the diverse settings in which it operates. The number and type of aircraft changes over time as older aircraft are retired and new aircraft acquired to meet the current needs of those we serve. MAF currently operates over 130 aircraft in more than 30 countries.

Every three minutes,  a MAF plan is taking off or landing somewhere in the world, from over 1500 landing strips and airfields.
