Abstract : One of the primary functions of the Air Forces Bird/Aircraft Strike Hazard (BASH) Team is to assist bases worldwide with their bird hazards. Due to the wide variety of environments of bases, as well as the diverse missions of the aircraft, in-depth staff assistance proves to be a real challenge. Coupled with these difficulties is the added problem of personnel reassignment which does not allow for corporate memory to exist for an extended period of time. To combat these problems, the BASH Team has written a BASH Guidance Package, as base self-inspection checklist, and the Handbook on Bird Management and Control. In addition to these publications, the Team provides on-site assistance for specific and moe difficult situations. EAch of these items are described in more detail.
