Technical Guidance

Prevention and fight against wild life hazard is one of the main missions of flight safety, in particular at and around airports.

Since July, 1989, fight against the avian risk has been regulated. All the airports of national interest were endowed with services, operating means and scaring methods.

These measures were extended to the other animal species which can present a risk for aircrafts.

It is possible that in spite of the efforts of communication and formation on the subject, the entities in charge of these missions can have difficulties joining all the relevant elements into the good execution of the task.

That's why, it was considered convenient to put at their disposal a guide whose purpose is :

  • To specify the importance of the treatment of animal collisions ;
  • To give informations about bird airworthiness requirements ;
  • To explain the new organization of fight against wildlife hazard in France since 2007.
