Birds around an airport are a safety hazard because if a bird hits a plane’s windshield, propeller or fuselage, or is sucked into a jet engine, the results can be catastrophic for both bird and aircraft.

Various methods are used to try to keep the area on and above airports free of birds but now a company is using a robot birds of prey to fly above airfields to scare away the real birds.

Clear Flight Solutions and AERIUM Analytics is scheduled to begin testing at Canada’s Edmonton International Airport in the next few weeks.
