MAF international
  • Cairns

MAF International flies medical aid, relief and humanitarian help to vulnerable people in some of the most isolated places in the world.

Established in 1945, MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) was founded by a group of Christian World War Two pilots. Their shared vision was to use their aviation skills to help rather than harm, and in turn spread the good news and love of Christ.

For many remote communities across the world, the arrival of one of our planes symbolises hope, help and healing. Bringing with it vaccines, food, school books, mosquito nets, building materials, Bibles or the best chance of reaching urgent medical attention.

Our aircraft carry thousands of passengers every year, transporting key workers from over 1,300 organisations, including NGOs, churches and development groups. Our flights mean we can save our partners hours and sometimes days of travel. MAF International oversees programmes in Arnhem Land (Australia), Bangladesh, Chad, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, South Sudan, Tanzania, Timor-Leste and Uganda. We are also in the process of establishing a new programme in Myanmar.

Our mission hearted staff keep our programmes running. We recruit across a wide spectrum of disciplines including Engineers, Pilots, IT, Finance, Management and Communications.
