New FAA Video Aims to Help Reduce Wildlife Strikes

Last July, the FAA posted a new video designed to enhance airport safety and help curb wildlife strikes. Entitled “The 2015 Wildlife Hazard Management and Strike Reporting Update,” the video outlines the benefits of wildlife hazard strike reporting and how airport operators use the information to reduce wildlife strikes at airports. The video also discusses the FAA’s partnerships with other federal agencies and organizations to reduce wildlife strikes.

This is the second video in a series first launched last year to provide the airport community with information to help them continue to operate the nation’s airports safely and efficiently. To view the video, go to: http://www.faa.gov/airports/safety-video-series/.
