Most wildlife aircraft strikes occur on or in the vicinity of aerodromes, and represent serious safety concerns for air operations. Therefore, as required by ICAO and EASA, aerodromes are required to establish a Wildlife Hazard Control and Management Programme and competent authorities shall establish and implement procedures for reporting and recording wildlife strikes to aircraft.

This 3-day course provides aerodrome operations and planning representatives as well as civil authority staff with essential information about the applicable requirements related to Wildlife Hazard Control. Attendees will gain knowledge on common species causing hazards in the proximity of aerodromes. Moreover the documentation process will be presented by focusing on risk assessments. In addition participants will learn the latest technology, equipment, methods and techniques aimed at trying to reduce the risk of bird strikes occurring. The training course will cover the measures which should be adopted as part of an aerodrome’s Safety Management System (SMS) whilst attempting to manage wildlife related hazards.

The course covers all facets of wildlife hazard control and management including: industry best-practices, strategies to minimise bird hazard attractants, as well as methods to identify trends and patterns and to keep record for risk management purposes. The training is designed in an interactive form including group discussions, practical exercises, case studies and outside bird observation.
