Interaction of air sports with wildlife

A key issue on the agenda of the FAI Environmental Commission (EnvC) is to provide objective information about the interaction of air sports with wildlife. Air sports enthusiasts of all disciplines throughout the world need to know more about the various effects our activities have on nature, so as to be able to fly considerately.

EnvC has initiated a series of translations into English of articles which describe the effects of air sport activities on wildlife and how to find solutions to manage the issues. The articles were first published in a German book entitled “Air Sports & Nature Protection”, published jointly by the German Aero Club and the German Federal Agency for Nature Protection.

Although the case studies are mainly from Germany, they provide advice and practical help on how to manage environmental and nature conservation issues anywhere in the world. The first translations are now available on this page as PDF files.

Further translations will be published on the EnvC website in the future.
