Frontier Centre is working in partnership with MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) to bring you the exciting Spotlight activity "Above and Beyond". Using a real aircraft (supplied by MAF) you get to step inside the mind of an MAF pilot as we re-create the atmosphere of a humanitarian mission to help you understand the life saving work provided by MAF.

MAF is a Christian charity that provides humanitarian aid in some of the most hostile environments in the developing world. They fly 135 aircraft across over 35 countries delivering food, water, medical items and both physical and spiritual care to those in need. For more information on the work that MAF do visit Above and Beyond Young MAF
