Reducing aircraft-wildlife strikes at airports
- Listowner's note:
This topic has indirect application to birding in California. I'm letting the message through so people can take the survey. However, the topic is not open for discussion.
Dear fellow birding enthusiasts,
As a lifelong birder and professional aviator for over 16 years, I am conducting a nation-wide study on the level of community support for the mitigation measures used at airports to reduce the wildlife strike hazard to commercial aircraft. Getting input from different regions of the country is necessary to gauge whether there are regional differences due to varying bird populations or possible high profile incidents involving wildlife strikes on aircraft.
Responses are submitted electronically to a database that does not identify users, so your answers will be completely confidential. Findings will be released only as analyzed data or summaries in which no individual's answers can be identified. Please take a few moments to share your opinions and experiences. I appreciate you taking time from your busy schedule to contribute toward this important research about community views on wildlife mitigation measures at airports.
The survey can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XTVS225
If you would like a summary of my findings, please send me your e-mail address at kennedym2009@.... Once the study is complete, I will e-mail the summary to you.
