CAP 772 update: guidance concerning aerodrome wildlife hazard management

Following collaboration with stakeholders and subject matter experts, we have published updated guidance material concerning wildlife hazard management at aerodromes (CAP 772). The principal changes in this revision address changes to bird/wildlife strike occurrence reporting procedures due to Regulation (EU) 376/2014. Further details concerning the reporting of occurrences can be found at www.caa.co.uk/MOR.

Other significant changes concern: aerodrome habitat and land management, both on and in its surroundings in order to reduce the attractiveness of the area to birds/wildlife; and use of lasers for bird control.
