Description

Based on the radar measurements of bird activity pilots then can: Use this information during approach and departure briefings to prepare for the event of a strike Use the full runway available in peak risk periods (no intersection takeoffs) Avoid low-level operations in areas with high bird activity (this would mainly apply for school flights, helicopters, general aviation, and military operations) Increase climb gradient to outclimb the risk area – if the area is close in, it also means traveling a shorter distance in a high-risk area If weather and traffic permits, consider take-off or approach in the opposite direction if risk is lower at one runway end (see images below) Reduce speed on initial approach to reduce the impact energy in case of a strike REAL-TIME DETECTION The graphs are generating a bird activity index and a forecast based on the real-time radar detection. GRAPH INFORMATION You can see historical activity data 36 hours back and an activity forecast 18 hours forward. The black line is the actual bird activity, the blue line – predicted bird activity. SUPPORTED BROWSERS For the best results, we suggest using Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox as your internet browser to view this page. Historically, the airport safety and wildlife management (and, in some cases, bird control units) were considered to be the main users of the avian radar data. However, Aalborg Airport has, in collaboration with AscendXYZ, identified that pilots, airline safety management, and flight operations’ departments can benefit from the data as well.
