Wildlife Strikes to Civil Aircraft in the United States, 1990–2019
The Federal Aviation Administration produced this report in cooperation with the US Department of Agriculture, Wildlife Services, under an interagency agreement (DTFACT-14-X-00007). The purpose of this agreement is to 1) document wildlife strikes to civil aviation through management of the FAA National Wildlife Strike Database and 2) research, evaluate, and communicate the effectiveness of various habitat management and wildlife control techniques for minimizing wildlife strikes with aircraft at and away from airports. These activities provide a scientific basis for FAA policies, regulatory decisions, and recommendations regarding airport safety and wildlife.
