MaxFreight was founded
in 1999 by Michael Maxham, who now flies as a real-world cargo
pilot. His original concept was to emulate the small Part 135
cargo companies that primarily fly prop, turboprop and some small
jets to provide cargo service to smaller airports. The original
hubs were located in Phoenix, Santa Ana, Seattle (Sea-Tac), Oakland
and Denver. Over the years the Seattle hub has moved to Boeing
Field, Santa Ana to Burbank, Oakland to Sacramento and we’ve
added hubs in Orlando, Chicago and Windsor Locks.

At MaxFreight, we fly "Nothing but Freight." Pilots are free to fly any cargo route, in any cargo aircraft they choose whenever they wish. MaxFreight has a wide variety of cargo aircraft in our fleet, from a small, single engines to heavy jets. We not only include aircraft compatible with FS98 thru FSX but for X-Plane and FlightGear as well and are constantly adding to our fleet. Flights out of our hubs cover the contiguous United States, Alaska and Hawaii. We also have international flights to many countries around the world.
Our VA provides training materials on various topics. MaxFreight members have access to more information at our forums, where they can read NOTAMs, chat about the topic du jour and even ask questions of their fellow pilots about flying.
Our goal to keep our pilots
happy and flying. MaxFreight strives to provide a friendly, easy
going atmosphere. There
are few restrictions or strict policies, except that everyone
must fly regularly. We do strive for realism, but not to the extent
that it interferes with the enjoyment of our hobby.
