Does Abilene Regional Airport Have Problem With Local Wildlife?

City Council Could Approve FAA Wildlife Hazard Assessment

By Jocelyn Tovar, KTXS News
ABILENE,Texas — Whether Abilene’s airport has a problem with interference from local wildlife could be assessed over the course of a year.

The issue will be studied if the City Council approves a contract at this Thursday’s Council meeting.

The FAA requires wildlife hazard assessments for airports, and if it’s determined there is a problem, Abilene Regional could get a wildlife management program.

Birds typically can create problems for airports, said City Manager Larry Gilley.
