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 2016 titled, "Annual Report: Wildlife Strikes to Civil Aircraft in the United States (1990-2016)", is now available. This report presents a summary analysis of data from the National Wildlife Strike Database for the 26-year period 1990 through 2016.
