With over eight thousand kilometers of rivers, one third of Bangladesh is covered in water. A few airports and a limited road network, much of the country is very hard to access. Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) utilizes it’s amphibious (water or land) aircraft to serve humanitarian, medical, and NGO organizations allowing them to reach and assist some of the most remote areas of the country. Normally, these areas are where the need is the greatest.
The high-wing, turbine-engined, aircraft is fitted with a pair of floats that allow it to take off and land on water or land. The extensive river network throughout the country now allows rather than impedes access for communities in need. If there is a river or a runway in the vicinity, MAF can go there!
