Senior Scout visit to Missionary Aviation Fellowship

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is a non-profit organisation (NPO) operating a fleet of more than 135 aircraft in about 30 countries in the developing world.  

The Senior Air Scouts of our Air Scout Group were invited to visit MAF on Saturday 2nd November to view their aircraft, attend a talk on how to plan distribution of weight on their aircraft and hear about some of the interesting missions that they have done. 

Mark Liprini (pilot for MAF) also made it possible for the Air Scouts to visit the Lanseria Control Centre, the Lanseria Fire Station and finally the Lanseria Air Traffic Control.

Below is a photo of the Senior Air Scouts viewing the aircraft.

Our thanks to Mark, and to MAF, for the opportunity given  to our Senior Scouts. More information about the missions MAF have completed can be found on their website http://www.mafsa.co.za/ or their blog site  http://blog.mafsa.co.za/
