Chief Engineer and Chief of Maintenance - Myanmar

Mission Aviation Fellowship

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is an organisation using light aircraft to deliver help and hope in over 30 developing countries. MAF transports patients, relief workers, produce and medical supplies to the world’s remotest regions and places of deepest human need – places where flying is not a luxury but a lifeline.

Situated at the crossroads between South Asia and the Greater Mekong Subregion, Myanmar is a fascinating and ethnically diverse state. It is abundant in natural beauty; from jungle-covered mountain ranges to ancient temples and vast lakes and wetlands.  Since independence in 1948, Myanmar has struggled to integrate its eight distinct ethnic minority cultures, who populate the most remote outer lying provinces of the country and often live in extreme poverty. 

MAF Myanmar is a brand new programme.  Be involved right from the very start, and help shape the future of this programme!
