Abstract

LightHawk aviation, a Maine-based consortium, is directed by Rudy Engholm, who conducts environment-saving missions on his Lancair Columbia 400 TC aircraft. The group makes over 1,000 flights annually, which are free to LightHawk partners, and which involve research, data collection, aerial photography, or wildlife transport for reintroducing endangered species. LightHawk enabled Maine Audubon to make an aerial survey of loons on northern lakes and has provided flights to Maine land trusts. It flies missions in Canada, the U.S. and into Central America, with the help of nearly 170 volunteer pilots.
