By Reza Hedayati

What's a fowl strike? Any touch among a relocating automobile (usually an airplane) and
an airborne avian creature (usually a poultry or bat) or a gaggle of such avian creatures is
called a poultry strike. The time period is generally elevated to incorporate different flora and fauna species
including terrestrial mammals. the results of such touch for a chook is, after all, usually
fatal. For an plane, in spite of the fact that, the end result can range from a blood smear, an indentation
or small gap within the aircraft’s body, vast harm to an aircraft
component, or maybe whole plane destruction; this can be frequently attributable to significant
bird moves that disable engines.
A chicken strike can, consequently, be an important possibility to the protection of airplane shuttle.

Bird deterrent devices are generally divided into acoustic, visual, and lethal, and further subdivided into static and portable systems (International Bird Strike Committee, 2006). As stated in the standards Bird strike: prevention and proofing 39 provided by the Bird Strike Committee for wildlife control (International Bird Strike Committee, 2006): “the levels of sophistication, and hence cost, available are highly variable and include the simple scarecrow (a static visual device), complex radiocontrolled sound generators (static acoustic), pyrotechnic pistols, and vehicle mounted distress call apparatus (mobile acoustic), hand held lasers (mobile visual), traps (static lethal) and a shotgun (mobile lethal)”.

Of birds struck No. of strikes % of all No. 7 100 +100 Fatalities No. 20 Minor damage No. of birds struck No. 4 Substantial damage Destroyed aircraft % of all No. of strikes % of all No. 3 monetary loss. 8 million monetary loss. This again emphasizes the importance of the implementation of harassment techniques for birds and terrestrials in wildlife management programs. In the period 2000– 2014, in slightly less than half of the filed reports for wildlife strikes with damage or aircraft destruction, the costs are provided.
