The animal hazard prevention service (SPPA) contributes to flight safety and aims to reduce the risk of collision between aircraft and animals of all species, during take-off and landing.



Devices employed


Several devices are employed to scare off animals:

  • Pyrotechnic devices (firing shellcrackers, sound detonators and whistlers, at long range).
  • Acoustic devices (synthetic sound devices producing predators’ cries).
  • Laser torch.
  • Rifle.

By combining these effective means, the service renders the airfield inhospitable to all animal species.
