FAA Bird Strike Database Available to Public

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) made its entire Bird Strike database available on a public Web site on Friday, April 24. Portions of the database have been publicly available since the information was first collected in 1990, but the public will now be able to access all of the database's fields.

FAA is also withdrawing a proposal to protect the data, after a 30-day comment period closed earlier this week. FAA has determined that it can release the data without jeopardizing aviation safety.

FAA has redacted a very small amount of data in the database containing privacy information, such as personal phone numbers.

Over the next four months, FAA will make significant improvements to the database to improve the search function and make it more user-friendly. In its current format, users will only be able to perform limited searches online, but will be able to download the entire database.

FAA also plans to work with the aviation community to find ways to improve and strengthen bird strike reporting. The database can be accessed through wildlife-mitigation.tc.faa.gov/public_html/temp.html#access.
