About Bird Strikes

Bird strikes are most common at takeoff or landing, or whilst flying at low alititudes.  Some bird strikes have been reported at much higher altitudes, some as high as 20,000 ft to 9,000 m (30,000 ft) above the ground.

An aircraft over the Ivory Coast collided with a Rüppell’s Vulture at the astonishing altitude of 11,300 m (37,100 ft), the current record avian height.

According to the FAA’s Wildlife Hazard manual, 90% of bird strikes occur during the landing and take off phase and less than 8% of strikes occur above 3,000 ft 61% occur at less than 100 ft
