birdstrike April 2016. Rosaviatsia prepared a new project of Federal Aviation Rules (FAR) “Rules of exploitation of civil airdromes, seadromes, heliports and landing grounds”. The document now contains new regulations on ornithological safety provision. With the introduction of the new FAR the old “Manual on Ornithological Flight Safety Provision” (РООП ГА-89) will be repealed. Now the project of the new FAR has passed the stage of necessary approvals.
According to AOG the new flight safety regulations in FAR cannot be regarded as apposite as they do not comply with the federal law as well as with ICAO standards and recommendations, modern achievements and developments of flights safety provision in Russia and do not stand on a deliberated methodical basis.


birdstrike 18 September 2015. According to Rosaviatsia 13 cases of aircraft wildlife strikes (excluding birds) during taking offs and landings were registered for the period from 01.01.2005 to 31.08.2015; at the same time there were noted 85 incidents, caused by a threat of a strike with an animal walking in the runway.







birdstrike 18 September 2015. Russian national aviation authority represented by Safety Inspection Office of Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) after a 27-years stop has recommenced registration of mass cases of aircraft bird and wildlife strikes not leading to aircraft damage and not causing any negative consequences to the flight, which are those not classified as incidents or accidents.
Rosaviatsia gives its guarantee that reports on such strikes would be regarded as voluntary reporting not subject to p. 121 of “Rules of development and application of aircraft flight safety management systems, together with collection and analysis of data of danger and risks factors, threatening civil aviation flight safety as well as its storage and sharing” approved by RF Government Decree of 18.11.2014 № 1215. That means that information contained in voluntary reports cannot be grounds for disciplinary, civil or administrative penalties. The data on danger and risk factors will not be used for purposes not related to civil aviation flight safety management.
A special birdstrike Report Form was introduced in Rosaviatsia official letter of 18.09.2015 г. № АН1.02-3056 "Information on Flight Safety № 19". Since 1988 AOG specialists have been drawing attention to the rationale of the necessity to register all birdstrikes including those not considered as incidents or accidents. It took Russian Aviation Authority (structure of the branch management body changed several times) more than 20 years to realize the importance of this question.
The request to register all birdstrikes was newly added into p. 8.25 of Federal Aviation Rules “Preparation and Execution of RF Civil Aviation Flights” (FAR-128, Russian Ministry of Transportation decree of 31.07.2009 №128.
By efforts of AOG specialists, the collection of data on Russian (Soviet) aircrafts birdstrikes is being conducted since 1971, with periodical analysis of data gathered.
In 2007 the AOG specialists made an addition, based on many years’ experience, to the well-known ICAO Report Form to adopt it to modern requirements of ornithological provision in Russian civil aviation. However the results of the OAG work were ignored again. Nowadays the Form needs new methodical additions of data concerning wildlife strikes.
