EGAST Leaflet GA 6 Bird Strike

This leaflet deals with bird strikes. Yes, a collision with a nice soft-feathered bird can lead to serious damage; such as a destroyed windshield (that can injure the pilots), clogged air intakes, a broken pitot tube, damaged brake lines, holes or dents in the fuselage or wings… This leaflet was translated from a German AOPA Safety Letter.
