Air-to-air collisions with birds or drones represent a real risk for civilian and military aircraft. To ensure passengers’ safety and mitigate risks, regulators (i.e. Transport Canada and Federal Aviation Administration, etc.) require engine and airframe manufacturers to certify their products for bird strike/ingestion at representative conditions (impact speed, bird weight and environment temperature).
