  • Foreword

    The ICAO Bird Strike Information System (IBIS) is a reporting system designed to collect and disseminate information on bird strikes which occur as a result of a colljsjon between an aircraft and a bird. Data supplied by Contracting States and aircraft operators to ICAO are stored in a computer for easy retrieval and analysis. This manual describes the reporting system, the codes used for storage of data in the computer and the types of analyses of the reported data that are available. Many States may be concerned only with the reporting and analysis aspects of bird strikes. Some States, however, may want to report bird strikes to ICAO by computer tape and code their own bird strikes. For these States, the IBIS Manual is a source document for data coding of bird strikes.

    Any enquiries concerning IBIS or this manual should be addressed to the Secretary General of ICAO, making reference to AN 4/9. I . 1 .

  • Chapter 1


    ICAO State letter AN 4/9.1-79/179, dated 23 November 1979, requested Contracting States to report all bird strikes to aircraft. For this purpose, a Bird Strike Reporting Form was developed (see Sample Form 1). An over-all review of the lCAO Bird Strike Information System (IBIS) was carried out in 1985. After careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of amending the questions included in the reporting form, it was decided that, in order to retain continuity, no changes should be made to the reported strike data. Notwithstanding the decision to retain the current reporting form, a new Supplementary Bird Strike Reporting Form (see Sample Form 2) was developed for airlines, which are required to provide information pertaining to costs resulting from bird strikes, as well as detailed information on damage to engines. This is a post-incident report since engine damage and cost can only be ascertained after detailed inspection and assessment. It is believed that the questions on the forms are self-explanatory. However, several genera1 remarks about the forms and on certain questions may be useful.


    1.1.1 The forms are designed for direct reproduction by States. At the beginning of each form, space is provided for each State to add the address and/or instructions for returning the form to its appropriate authorities. It should be noted that it is not intended that forms be sent directly to ICAO. Similarly, at the end of each form, space has been provided to include the address within the State to which any bird remains, including feather fragments, should be sent. States will wish to complete these two pieces of information before reproducing the forms. Depending on the organizational structure of the State, it may be advantageous to reproduce self-copying forms to allow for multiple uses by different authorities within the State.

    1.1.2 After reproduction by States, the blank reporting forms should be distributed to aircraft operators and to each aerodrome in the State.

    1.1.3 In connexion with the question pertaining to the identification of the bird species involved in strikes, States are urged to confirm such identifications. Confirmation shouid be accomplished by means of a positive identification by a qualified person. When the bird species has been confirmed, the State should so indicate in the "remarks" portion of the form. Such confirmations will be coded in the computer-stored data. ,


    1.2.1 The ICAO Bird Strike Reporting Form is normally completed by the pilot following an aircraft collision with a bird; however, reports may be completed by airport ground staff, air traffic controllers or aircraft maintenance staff. The Supplementary Bird Strike Reporting Form is expected to be completed by the operator involved. The reports are normally sent to the appropriate authority in each State, after
