Stuart King was one of the earliest British airmen to take light aircraft into unchartered areas of Africa. With a desire to use planes to bring help to those living in isolated areas, Stuart dedicated his life to demonstrating the Christian message through aviation and technology.

Today, thousands of remote communities across Africa and the world have been touched thanks to MAF’s trusted, dependable air-service. Stuart’s remarkable bravery, solid determination and steadfast faith have helped create the world’s largest humanitarian airline.

A great believer in the next generation, Stuart was always delighted to see MAF grow beyond his expectations and see young professionals begin a life-long adventure with MAF.

Leaving a gift to MAF in memory of Stuart will not only keep his legacy alive, but enable MAF to train new highly-skilled, faith-filled men and women to take MAF’s life-saving mission the furthest, unreached corners of the globe.


‘Stuart’s tremendous contribution to the founding of MAF has had a profound impact on the ministry of many people across the world and the Anglican Communion.'

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby
