Bird Strike Committee USA was formed in 1991 as a forum to facilitate the exchange of information, promote the collection and analysis of accurate wildlife strike data, promote the development of new technologies for reducing wildlife hazards, promote professionalism in wildlife management programs on airports through training and advocacy of high standards of conduct for airport biologist and bird patrol personnel, and be a liaison to similar organizations in other countries.
Bird Strike Committee USA is a volunteer organization directed by a Steering Committee consisting of members from representative organizations, including the Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, the private sector, aviation industry/airlines and airports.
