The Flying Scouts are a small group of enthusiasts using small aircraft, photography and willpower to help conservation and humanitarian projects mainly around Thailand.
The original concept was formed when Tom Potisit and Eduardo Loigorri (“Flying Ed”) joined together in helping the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation (WARF) to conduct aerial survey flights to help protect the endangered Dugong species in Southern Thailand.
Since then we have recruited many volunteers who have helped in various projects.
We are self-financed, using our own equipment, time and effort towards worthwhile projects.
We have access to various small aircraft, but mainly use HS-EAL, a two seat Tecnam P92JS high wing aircraft for conducting the low level survey flights of Dugongs and Whales, as well as helping rehabilitate Gibbons.
