Fleet Optimization

For more than 25 years, the Cessna 206 has been the workhorse of the MAF fleet. Unfortunately, the avgas required to fuel its piston engine is increasingly scarce and often expensive in isolated areas where MAF serves.

Years ago, MAF leadership accurately foresaw the shortage and rising cost of avgas and made plans to optimize the fleet by replacing most of its C206s with jet-fueled airplanes. Progress has been made, but there is still much to be done! Optimizing the fleet means that newer airplanes will expand MAF’s capacity to reach even more isolated people with Christ’s love.
