At MAF we believe that Gods ways are higher than our ways and we asked a group of business men to help us save a million dollars. When they offered to pay for two aircraft, this was the confirmation to make a bid for five aircraft out of a bankruptcy. (MAF NL website)

When I was in Mareeba for the instructor pilot course, I saw a lot of hard work being done on the two financed GA8 Airvans. MAF Netherlands asked if I could take some photo's of the work being done to prepare these aircraft for the mission field. This resulted in the attached photo report (Dutch captions only).

The Supervisory Pilot course was very good. Besides another pilot from Arnhem Land there were two pilots from Papua New Guinea and two pilots from Africa present for various courses. It was good to hear the different experiences!

 

The Cessna 206 that I learned to fly from the right hand seat. I had to get used to this, because the last 600 hours I flew were from the left seat of a GA8 Airvan (a pilot normally sits in the left hand seat). Also a lot of attention was paid to learning to train pilots, and the latest developments in the field of Training & Checking in MAF International.
