Missionary Flights International

Mission Flights International was founded in 1960 by Don Beldin. At that time, Don was flying a small engine plane for Youth for Christ evangelism in the Bahamas. Don began transporting other missionaries in his plane as the needs increased. In 1964, Don incorporated Missionary Flights International ( MFI) to meet the needs of Bible-centered missions. As the need for air services increased, MFI acquired larger planes and added additional destinations.
After 42 years in West Palm Beach, MFI moved to Fort Pierce, FL in 2006. Today MFI operates out of two hangars flying turbine-powered DC-3s to meet the needs of over 450 missions to the Bahamas, Haiti, Dominican Republic and anywhere else the Lord sends them. About 300 tons of cargo and over 4,000 Christian workers are transported every year.

Mission Statement of MFI:
In partnership with Bible-centered missions by providing reliable transportation and logistical services.
