Information about types of flights…
MAF have been offering air charter services to the Arnhem Land region continuously for over 40 years. As a service oriented not-for-profit organisation our aim is to provide the most effective air service that we can to the people of this region, including facilitating access to the many remote communities and homelands in the region. To this end we have strategically based our aircraft and pilots at the following communities within the Arnhem Land region; Gove, Milingimbi, Ramingining, Elcho Island (Galiwinku) and Lake Evella (Gapuwiyak).
MAF operate 8 single engine aircraft for VFR charters by day in the Arnhem Land region and further afield if needed.Due to the nature of our organisation and the applicants that we attract, we have a comparatively low rate of staff turnover. Of our current flight crew, more than 50% have been flying in Arnhem Land for more than 3 years. This leads to a very high experience level across our flight crew. We have a very thorough and comprehensive recruitment and induction process that ensures all staff who commence service with MAF are highly trained to fulfil their role safely and professionally within the organisation.
We have a proven safety record and are the only Arnhem region operator with an onsite maintenance facility. Our highly trained and experienced engineering team keep our young fleet of modern aircraft very well maintained meaning you can fly confidently with MAF. We can carry flexible load configurations, have competitive pricing and pride ourselves on our customer service and on-time performance. With our pilots and aircraft based in the communities across Arnhem Land this gives us greater flexibility to efficiently and economically meet all your charter needs. We are authorised to carry your dangerous goods and have an air conditioned Gove terminal.We envisage continuing to serve the people of Arnhem Land for many years to come.
