Lailenpi Airstrip update

Posted on 10th December 2020 by Philippa Wilford

The video above shows the latest progress that has been made on the Lailanpi Airstrip project. Despite a few delays as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the airstrip is on track for completion early next year, with the first flight being planned for March 2021. 

It is only through our partnership with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) that this incredible project has been made possible. This year, MAF are celebrating their 75th Anniversary and have held a series of online events to mark this milestone.

This isn’t just an airstrip - it’s the airstrip of health, the airstrip of education, the airstrip of social economics...Life is full of hope. Lailenpi Airstrip was the hope for my village, then it became the hope for my state and now it’s becoming the hope for my nation.
