Our Fleet

We operate a fleet of 47 light aircraft from 14 bases in eight countries in Africa, Asia, Eurasia, and Latin America. Our pilots save valuable travel time and cover seemingly impossible distances in minutes or hours compared to days by foot, road, or river. Each year, we fly over two million nautical miles to speed the work of some 500 Christian and humanitarian organizations. MAF flights support indigenous churches and local evangelists, create access to medical care, provide disaster relief, and make community development projects possible …in some of the most remote places on earth.

MAF Airplanes

Cessna 206

Single-Engine (Piston) with seating for 6. Thirteen Cessna 206s are in service with MAF-US.

This faithful workhorse has been the mainstay of the MAF fleet for many years. With its sizable cabin and double cargo doors it is well suited to transport both passengers and cargo to the most remote destinations. Many of our 206s are turbocharged allowing them to operate at higher altitudes.

Cessna 208

Single-Engine (Turboprop) with seating for 10. Thirteen Cessna 208s are in service with MAF-US.

The “big brother” in the Cessna family. The Caravan can haul more, further, and faster. It is equipped with a cavernous cargo pack underneath to haul a large load. This bigger plane does require longer, more improved, airstrips however.

Quest Kodiak 100

Single-Engine (Turboprop) with seating for 10. Twelve KODIAKs are in service with MAF-US.

This airplane was designed from the ground up to thrive in the “bush.” A special high-lift wing and a 750 horsepower engine allow this capable machine to operate on shorter airstrips while hauling heavier loads. It has replaced the Cessna 206 in some regions because it burns jet fuel instead of expensive avgas.

Cessna 207

Single-Engine (Piston) with seating for 8. Two Cessna 207s are in service with MAF-US.

This is the Cessna 206’s twin brother with an extra row of seats. It fills a niche where more passenger seats are needed.

Pilatus PC-12

Single-engine turboprop passenger and cargo aircraft. One Pilatus PC-12 is in service with MAF-US.

It allows MAF to carry more cargo further and faster than many of the other airplanes in MAF’s fleet—making it an ideal tool for a vast country like the DRC.

Cessna 210

Single-Engine (Turbocharged) with seating for 6. One Cessna 210 is in service with MAF-US.

This is the fastest, most sophisticated, member of our piston-engine fleet. The retractable landing gear and laminar-flow wing allow it to fill the needs of long-range missions.

Cessna 172

Single-Engine (Piston) with seating for 4. Three Cessna 172s are in service with MAF-US.

Its mild-mannered, forgiving temperament makes it an ideal airplane for training new pilots. This little brother of our Cessna fleet is quite happy going round and round the airport traffic pattern patiently enduring bounce after bone-jarring bounce. Many MAF pilots learned the “ropes” at the controls of a Cessna 172.
