As part of the implementation of new European regulation and the new wildlife hazard prevention service order, aerodrome operators are responsible for the risk assessment of wildlife on their platform and its surroundings.
This study proposes to airport operators a method to evaluate wildlife hazard. This method is based on a statistical approach to animal collisions, coupled with environmental field observations. This animal risk assessment should help to establish more effective and adapted animal risk mitigation measures for the aerodrome.
This study report foreshadows the publication by the STAC, by late 2014, of a methodological technical guidance about the assessment of wildlife hazard.
