 FALCONRY ENSURES SAFETY ON OUR FLIGHTS
 

BIRDS REMOVAL TOWARDS FALCONERY

Eagles and falcons to ensure flight safety  
 
Cheyenne, Margot, Viper, Ramirez, Mefisto are the names of some splendid examples of golden eagle, Harris eagle , Gyrfalcon, peregrine falcon, Goshawk  that, under the guidance of Falconry experts, which perform a very delicate task Aviation Safety Agency: fox and wild birds free from aircraft flight areas of   Bari and Brindisi airports.
A technique already tested by the RAF during the II World War  that aims to avoid the harmful consequences of possible impacts between aircraft and birds, the so-called "bird strike".
A technique abandoned until a few years ago, gradually rediscovered and now used in major airports in the world, displacing,slowly, systems much more invasive and noisy (compressed air guns, sound Players of raptors verses). A method that exploits the natural instinct of species and that for its particular validity collecting more and more consensus.

APulia AIRPORTS have been the first to believe in the efficacy ;It could only be so, in what was the land of Frederick II, who just a few kilometers from Bari did erect Castel del Monte, his favorite hunting manor.

The use of hawks, as well as prevent the adaptation of birds in mechanical and artificial methods, improve a better biological balance. The disturbance caused by the hawk in flight free port unbloody expulsion from the airport of birds present and ensure better safety standards.
The bird strike is one of the factors with higher risk of aviation and represents one of the most serious and less predictable causes of an accident. Especially in the sensitive stages of landing and take-off the impact with a flock may cause substantial damage to on-board instrumentation and structure of the plane.
A risk factor more pronounced on coastal airports, such as those of Puglia. Hence the need for deterrents of proven effectiveness to ensure high safety standards.
How has this activity which, though applied to a strong element of modernity which the half plane, keeps intact the old charm?
A first moment is that the inspections several times affecting the viability perimeter of the airport, the runway landing, fittings and aircraft apron.
Accertata the presence of birds potentially dangerous for the aviation activities, as assessed the weather conditions (wind, temperature) and identified the species to be removed, the team-instructor and hawk - kick off in a simulated game of about 10 minutes. Hawks pilgrims and girfalchi for the removal of real and common gulls, hawks and pigeons sacred pavoncelle, eagles Harris for waders.
To maximize the effects of service, to prevention was flanked a study by the Department of Zoology at the University of Bari, who has traced the screening of species insistent on airports Puglia (number, habits, zones of concentration) and assessed the their potential danger.
A scientific approach to meet the growing demand for safety. If we, then, the testimony of how the nature and its ability to harmonize progress can contribute to solving problems so intelligent and respectful of our future and future generations.

The hawks reach a weight fluctuates between 650 and 1200 grams. The average life of a free specimen is 13-14 years, which reaches 20 for those in captivity. They eat - once a day - food up to 20% of their body weight. Their wingspan is about a meter and in-flight can reach an altitude of 300 metres.
