UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

The files presented below contain aggregated birdstrike data, reported to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The CAA intends to update this information annually.

Note on interpretation of UK birdstrike data

  • The CAA's view is that the volume of birdstrikes reported at a particular airport or aerodrome does not imply greater hazard.
  • Users should exercise caution in forming any conclusion or opinion based on quantitative data alone.
  • The CAA disclaims all responsibility for any interpretation which might be made by others in receipt of this birdstrike data.
