According to the US Federal Aviation Administration, bird strikes have killed more than 231 people and destroyed over 220 aircraft worldwide since 1988.
Satellites are helping to change this deadly scene. In 2007, ESA began the FlySafe project in partnership with the Dutch, Belgian, French and German Air Forces and in cooperation with industry and research institutes from several European countries.
