This report presents a summary analysis of data from the FAA's National Wildlife Strike Database for the 14-year period 1990 through 2003. Unless noted, all totals are for the 14-year period, and percentages are of the total known. Because of the large amount of data, Tables 2 through 17 present 14-year totals only and do not display data for individual years. In addition to the summary analysis for 1990 through 2003, a sample of significant wildlife strikes to civil aircraft in the USA during 2003 is presented at the end of the report. These strike examples demonstrate the widespread and diverse nature of the problem.
