Abstract

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) William J. Hughes Technical Center has contracted with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Prescott to develop and maintain a website dealing with a variety of issues and concerns related to wildlife and aviation. Our goal is to increase the transfer of information among biologists and the aviation community regarding the nature of wildlife hazards to aircraft and methods for reducing these hazards. The site has an on-line wildlife strike report form (FAA Form 5200-7) which also enables users submitting strike reports to access information on wildlife management, bird identification, FAA guidelines, and strike statistics. A query system has been developed that allows authorized airport and air carrier personnel to access selected components of the FAA National Wildlife Strike Database. Other user services available at the website are current news, upcoming meetings and training, available jobs, and discussion/forum sections.
