African Relief Flying

Greetings all,

I tried poking around to see if I could find a thread on the subject but the one I found was quite old.

I'm still young and I'd love to use my skill set to help out in the famished regions for a year or two. Was wondering if anyone knows of any organizations that need pilots. Any advice or stories will be greatly appreciated.

Most NGOs use contracted aircraft and crews. The only ones I know of who operate their own aircraft are MAF and ASF.
