Dealing with the DOT
Since MFI began its service to the mission community in the West Indies in 1964, many rules and government regulations have been added to aviation and to the MFI operation. It seems that every year more rules are created that we must comply with. It takes many hours each week for our office staff to accomplish all of the government requirements for our international flights. Recently the Department of Transportation (DOT) has contacted MFI about how we conform to certain transportation regulations. We have followed the same FAA guidelines over the past 48 years but now we must re-evaluate our procedures. Please pray that MFI will be able to meet the standards that are set before us.
The DOT has asked us to suspend our website until the issue is settled. Any recurring credit card donations will continue to be processed normally. If a new donor would like to donate online, please call the MFI office at 772-462-2395 and they will assist you.
