At the airport of Buryatia "Baikal" solved the problem with birdsJune 7, 2018
In the Buryat airport special equipment was installed to scare away birds.
In order to ensure the safety of flights, special bird scare devices were installed at the airport. These are mirror balls, as well as an acoustic and laser repeller. According to the press service of the airport, the devices were placed in an area where aircraft are landing.
As you know, birds can be a threat to airport security. Although, according to Alexei Kiselev, the director of the airport, fortunately, such cases did not arise. However, after illegal spontaneous dumping of waste occurred near the airport in Ulan-Ude, such a threat may be more real due to a large influx of birds.
The administration of the Buryat airport has already appealed to the prosecutor's office of the Republic of Buryatia regarding the settlements of Gurulba and Lower Ivolg, demanding the liquidation of the landfills.As a result, the employees of the transport prosecutor's office examined the territories of the landfills and drafted the relevant acts, according to which the decision to eliminate the violations was made. This was stated by Ekaterina Shunkova, assistant transport prosecutor of Buryatia.
Already at the beginning of May, a set of waste remediation activities was carried out. As a result, the number of birds has noticeably decreased.
Note that the mirror balls scare the birds during the day, in any weather, creating glare in all directions. The laser repeller, in turn, is effective at night. The device deters birds by means of a special moving laser beam.
The bio-acoustic device is installed in a special car. When an ornithological presence appears at one or another point of the airport, the car is sent to the airfield and eliminates the danger.
