• A new version of the FAA’s Wildlife Strike Reporting Database will be deployed on Wednesday, July 31, 2019:

A new version of the FAA’s Wildlife Strike Reporting Database will be deployed on Wednesday, July 31, 2019. The website and the automated ‘One-Stop’ reporting functionality will be unavailable for several hours on the morning of July 31, while we deploy the new software and perform system validations.

Deployment of this new software presents a streamlined system that will enhance our ability to collect and process the wildlife strike data that you furnish. Improvements implemented in this new system will result in a much shorter turn-around time from reporting to publishing searchable data.

For those of you (there are only a few) who use the automated ‘One-Stop’ Reporting function (i.e. Web Service), please contact michael.dipilato@faa.gov to ensure that your system is compatible with this new wildlife strike reporting software.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation!

  • Update on Available Data in the FAA National Wildlife Strike Database, as of July 9th, 2019:

The FAA National Wildlife Strike Database currently includes wildlife strike reports through May 31, 2019. This includes reports that were submitted online and via "paper" 5200-7 forms (Bird / Other Wildlife Strike Report).

The database currently includes wildlife strike reports submitted via Mandatory Occurrence Reports (MOR), supplied by the Air Traffic Organization, through December 31, 2018. The remaining MORs are being analyzed and will be incorporated into the database shortly.

FAA Wildlife Strike Database

The FAA Wildlife Strike Database contains records of reported wildlife strikes since 1990. Strike reporting is voluntary. Therefore, this database only represents the information we have received from airlines, airports, pilots, and other sources.

For additional information, please visit the FAA Wildlife Hazard Mitigation Program site.

The annual wildlife strike report for 2017 titled, "Annual Report: Wildlife Strikes to Civil Aircraft in the United States (1990-2017)", is now available. This report presents a summary analysis of data from the National Wildlife Strike Database for the 27-year period 1990 through 2017.
