Since 1983, Aviation Sans Frontières Belgium (ASF-B) has been providing air support to humanitarian missions. Thanks to the organisation’s use of light aircraft, which makes it possible to land on and take off from the most rudimentary of runways, ASF-B has been able to operate in difficult-to-access conflict areas, especially those in Africa, thus reaching isolated communities, including victims of violence, war, poverty and sickness.
As a non-governmental organisation, ASF-B is a neutral and independent entity staffed by volunteers in various positions. Pilots, logistical support, escorts, etc., dedicate a large part of their free time to support missions. Furthermore, ASF-B also provides an escort service for sick children requiring urgent medical care.
