avoidance system."

I agree. I help in bird hazard management at a number of Australian airports
and, interestingly, the major airline companies take an alternative point of
view. Their view is that they pay the airport authorities a lot of money to
land, depart and "park" their planes at airports. Therefore, they believe it
is the responsibility of the airports to provide a safe environment
(air-space around the airport) when planes are taking off or coming into

My point of view is that it is the responsibility of the airport
authorities, airline companies, pilots (of all sized planes), aviation
safety authorities, government policy makers, and managers of land that
surround the airports.
