Bird Strike Committee Canada
NEWS: The Bird Strike Association of Canada has a new (old) name. Going back to the past, we have decided to revert to the name Bird Strike Committee Canada (or Birdstrike Canada for short). Nothing else changes, just our name. We are still a membership organization and still represent the industry with respect to wildlife hazards to aircraft.
We believe that the key to reduce damaging wildlife strikes to aircraft in Canada is by building a community of professionals to exchange ideas, experiences and co-operative efforts to better manage wildlife at all Canadian airports. It is through the ecological management of wildlife and the application of best practices that we will be successful in reducing strikes to aircraft. In pursuing these beliefs, we influence all aspects of airport wildlife management in Canada.
The Bird Strike Committee Canada (BSCC) is a leader in airport wildlife strike prevention. Through dialogue with the industry, the BSCC seeks and advances innovative ideas in aviation safety. Our mandate includes setting standards and addressing industry issues by formulating effective strategies and implementing change through regulatory means. Birdstrike Canada is “The Canadian Voice of Wildlife Strike Prevention.”
Bird Strike Committee Canada is recognized by Transport Canada as Canada's National Bird Strike Committee organized under the guidelines set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
Young Students Tackle the Bird Strike Issue
NEWS: While they likely will not resolve the bird strike issue at airports, what is important is that these students from Zebra Robotics were aware that bird strikes are a serious issue — worth spending many of their Saturdays using all of their creative energies to design a conceptual approach to reducing strikes at airports. Not only that, they won in their region and are off to the provincial competition at the University of Waterloo. They sought advice from Bird Strike Canada and we are proud to have been able to support this group of young and creative future bird strike experts! Congratulations and good luck in the provincials.
