A health check for your program.


Programs that are out-of-date, non-compliant or poorly executed do not help you manage your wildlife risks. A Wildlife Hazard Assessment is like a health-check for your program, making sure it is effective and moving in the right direction.

We audit your program against national civil aviation regulations and international best practice standards. These key documents provide for an objective and standardised audit that is replicable and comparable. We also complete a thorough assessment, including standardised surveys, of on- and off-airport wildlife hazards, and a review of practices and procedures.

We then complete a risk assessment to determine your high and moderate risk species. We provide a transparent, logical and systematic approach to the identification and treatment of wildlife related risks. Avisure risk assessments use quantitative industry-indorsed methods that assesses either strike data or survey data, and in many instances, both. Our risk assessments can:

  • identify high, moderate and low risk species
  • determine risks by time of day and time of year
  • identify locations on- and off-airport that contribute to the strike risk

Our risk assessment methods are standardised and robust, allowing for repeated assessments so that can monitor your risks over hours, months, seasons and even years.

Our WHA process starts with:

  • issuing questionnaires to key personnel involved in wildlife hazard management
  • reviewing your strike data and any related documents
  • calculating a preliminary risk assessment

Then we conduct a site visit to:

  • meet with you and your team
  • visually inspect and survey the site, including airside, landside and potential hazards within 13km
  • cross-reference your program and actions against the regulations and standards

We finish the WHA by:

  • submitting a report that:
    • identifies your compliances and non-compliances
    • overviews your risk and identifies management program gaps
    • provides recommendations to achieve, and in many cases exceed, compliance
