Fort Worth Alliance Airport Wildlife Hazard Assessment
FORT WORTH ALLIANCE AIRPORT WILDLIFE HAZARD ASSESSMENT
Peloton Land Solutions conducted the wildlife hazard assessment (WHA) for Fort Worth Alliance Airport (AFW), the world’s first industrial airport designed exclusively for cargo and corporate aviation. Aircraft wildlife strikes are a serious problem in the U.S., resulting in an estimated $600 million in damage annually to civil aircraft alone. Wildlife strikes to civil aircraft have resulted in 23 fatalities in the U.S. since 1990. Such statistics point to the importance of managing wildlife on and around airports to reduce potential hazards.
At Alliance Airport, Peloton’s qualified wildlife biologists (meeting the requirements of FAA AC 150/5200-36) organized one-on-one stakeholder meetings, conducted monthly site visits, recorded bird and other wildlife observations, and prepared monthly reports and the final WHA report. Peloton also provided on-call wildlife hazard management services to Fort Worth Alliance Airport in the form of direct habitat management recommendations, wildlife capture and relocation, and harassment techniques/equipment.
