Mission Aviation dedicates Cessna Caravan bound for Haiti

Supporters, staff, and members of the community gathered Saturday at the Nampa headquarters of Mission Aviation Fellowship to dedicate a Cessna Caravan aircraft bound for a mission in Haiti where it will help transport supplies as well as medical teams and relief workers.

The fellowship is a faith-based, nonprofit ministry that serves missions and isolated people around the world with aviation, communications and learning technologies.

The new plane will leave for Haiti in May. Mission Aviation has been on the ground working in Haiti for 25 years, long before the earthquake that caused so much damage in an already vulnerable country. The organization has a permanent base at the airport in the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince.

Mission Aviation is active in 32 countries using a fleet of 140 planes.
