Flying Fox is a zip line and high ropes adventure builder and operator with multiple locations in India and Kenya. Founded in 2009 by Jonathan Walter and Dickie McCullam, they started out building two spectacular zip line tour locations, one at Neemrana Fort palace, just south of Delhi, and the other at the iconic Mehrangarth Fort, Jodhpur.
Their latest offering is a multi-activity location in Nairobi, with a Giant Swing, 16m Leap of Faith, 10m Airbag Jump, as well as climbing, abseiling and ziplining, all within the grounds and gardens of The Hub Karen shopping mall.
All Flying Fox sites operate and are inspected to European Standard EN15567, and are the first and only activity operator in both India and Kenya to do so.
Risk Memo Co-Founder Alistair Scott has been the Operations Director of Flying Fox for the past 11 years, and it was in this role that Alistair developed the idea for Risk Memo.
Being responsible for approximately 4000 individual items of PPE and equipment and around 50 employees spread across 2 continents, Alistair has been working to find an effective online solution for a decade, starting with online spreadsheets and then most recently before Risk Memo, a combination of apps.
The lightbulb moment for Alistair was recognising that the three core safety critical responsibilities that the Flying Fox team have, inspecting and monitoring PPE, activity installations and instructor competency, all have similar requirements and can be managed by one simple system.
