One Bird Strike and You're Out!
Solutions to Prevent Bird Strikes

The Mission

To promote a permanent technical solution to the aircraft bird strike problem.


The Solution

An engineer/pilot has patented a bird strike warning system for pilots to avoid birds. The book describes how a ground based radar, aircraft data link, cockpit display and collision avoidance system can be combined into a permanent technical solution to solve the aircraft bird strike problem.

The History

Over the past 25 years, aircraft collisions with birds have caused many large airliners to crash and hundreds of lives to be lost. It is estimated that aircraft bird strikes annually cost the aviation industry $650 million in the United States and over $1.2 billion worldwide. In the next 10 years, annual US air passenger traffic is expected to increase from the current value of 600 million to 1 billion. We have been lucky so far; the recent ditching of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson is a warning sign that should not be ignored.We need to start investing in technology to permanently solve this problem just as we solved the problem of mid-air collisions and collisions with the ground


The Book
