Abstract : Bird Stirke Hazard Reports prepared after collisions between birds and Naval aircraft indicate that there are many measures available to pilots which can reduce the risk of future collisions. These include: scheduling flights around peaks of bird activity, avoiding bird habitats, restricting speed at low altitudes, lookout vigilence, visor discipline aircraft to aircraft and aircraft to control tower communication, preflight briefings, bird strike avoidance training, development of a Bird Aircraft Strike Reduction Plan for each air facility, and good reporting.
