About the FAA Wildlife Strike Database
The FAA Wildlife Strike Database contains records of reported wildlife strikes since 1990. Strike reporting is voluntary. Therefore, this database only represents the information we have received from airlines, airports, pilots, and other sources.
There are two ways to view information in the database:
Do a quick search from the Search the Database page. You can export the results to Microsoft Excel.
Download the complete FAA Wildlife Strike Database (ZIP) in Microsoft Access format and create your own queries.
Our search tool shows key information for each wildlife strike, including Date, Airport, Airline, Aircraft, and Species. To view all 94 fields (MS Excel) of information, you must download the complete FAA Wildlife Strike Database (ZIP). You can also visit the FAQ page for Frequently Asked Questions about wildlife strikes.
