Australia’s top experts on bird and animals strikes will flock together at Melbourne Zoo for the Australian Aviation Wildlife Hazard Group’s (AAHWG) annual education forum.

The two-day event on the 30th & 31st of July will hear from international and local experts in sectors including airports, defence, air traffic control, safety regulators, ornithologists, and entomologists, along with major and regional airlines.

There will be various forum topics, with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, one of the founding members of the the group, commencing day 2 with Wildlife Hazard Management and your Safety Management System.

As Flight Safety Australia reported at the beginning of the year, wildlife-related incidents accounted for 23 per cent of all non-serious incidents for civilian air transport between 2002 and 2011, representing a significant safety issue for Australian aviation.

The event is open to the public, with limited places available. To book and for more information, please visit the AAWHG website.
