MAF Receives Built-for-Purpose Plane

The Missionary Aviation Fellowship has received the first delivery of a new Kodiak 100, built by Quest Aircraft.  The aircraft was built to specifications with input from a variety of missionary aviation organizations, including JAARS and Moody Bible Institute.  Among other features, the Kodiak is designed for austere, short fields and the ability to operate on jet fuel, which is more common and cost-effective than avgas in remote locations.  Quest Aircraft’s mission is to

design and manufacture a bush/utility aircraft specifically suited to the needs of missionary and humanitarian aviation organizations

For every 10 aircraft Quest sells commercially, it will deliver a subsidized aircraft to a participating aviation organization.

The MAF’s Kodiak will be ferried to Indonesia to begin service there.
