Mission Aviation Fellowship Using New Flight Simulators

NAMPA, Idaho – Global Nonprofit Mission Aviation Fellowship recently installed two new state-of-the-art flight simulators at its Nampa headquarters to be used for training.

MAF pilots travel the world connecting isolated people with vital services and goods while sharing their Christian beliefs.

“One thing we understand is that if we can’t do what we do safely, we’re not really helping. And so we want to do it as safely as possible, as much as possible.” Be as professional as we do,” said Dan Whitehead, Vice President of Aviation MAF.

simulators are coming from precision flight controls that were recently FAA certified. Both simulators feature 3-axis motion which allows MAF to conduct turbine training in-house, reducing cost and reliance on outside companies.

They will save approximately $12,000 per pilot by training with simulators at the Nampa campus.

“It’s one of our main goals, we want to be as safe as possible, and these simulators help us do that,” Whitehead said.

They will officially begin using the simulators for training later this month at their annual Instructor Pilot Symposium.
