Reduced wildlife strikes, improved air safety

Smarter thinking. Smarter working

Why spend thousands when airport aviation bird control personnel, a vehicle and basic wildlife control equipment can keep an airfield clear of strike risks?

Good wildlife hazard management is not all about what equipment you have. It’s also about how well you understand why the wildlife is presenting a risk to aircraft and how you can avoid this.

Improved wildlife hazard management also supports improved operational capacity and efficiencies for an airport.

In addition to reducing wildlife strike rates, smarter policies and working practice will increase compliance with ICAO and local CAA standards and recommended practice (SARPs).
