Technical Guidance

This document is under modification

The assessment of wildlife hazard on aerodromes is a recent approach governed by several international recommendations and several European or French statutory instruments. It is used to identify the wildlife species considered to be a problem for aviation safety on each aerodrome, based on the strikes in which they are involved and their year-round presence on aerodromes and their vicinity.

Wildlife hazard assessment follows a method developed by the STAC (French Civil Aviation Technical Centre) on civil aerodromes. This approach based on the measurement of a statistical and local risk level should enable us to define courses of action graduated for each wildlife species present on aerodromes.

This technical document offers a risk assessment methodology which may be used by certified aerodrome operators to develop and implement their own wildlife hazard prevention programme.
