Abstract

With the complexity of tools, information and resources available to airports today, there comes a need for standardization for those persons involved in Airport Wildlife Hazard Management. One approach to standardization would be the creation of a multi-level certification program to provide the basic necessary information, training and resources to anyone involved in Airport Wildlife Hazard Management. In order to create and manage this program, the basic structure of Bird Strike Committee USA (BSC USA) would need to evolve into a more formal organization. This reorganization would create the foundation for BSC USA to provide the necessary management structure and tools to develop and maintain a certification program as well as a variety of services and resources that involve wildlife management at airports.
