Messages from Jeff Follett, General Manager of Avisure Services, and Jill Brix, General Manager of Avisure 

With legislative changes, planning around a pandemic and many airports juggling with fewer people but increased workloads, 2020-2021 has been a memorable year.

Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan

Having just celebrated NAIDOC Week 2021, sister companies, Avisure and Ecosure, are very proud to announce that our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been finalised and endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. Our journey of reconciliation will enable us to foster partnerships and create sustainable opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In turn, our people and our businesses will increase their knowledge, respect, relationships, and involvement in the spiritual and cultural traditions of our First Nations People.
We look forward to walking this journey.

An airport’s best friend

There’s a very effective wildlife hazard management tool available to airports, but one not widely known—the ‘K9’.

Fallen Eagle

It’s not a birdstrike, but the code name for a very successful emergency response exercise Avisure facilitated on 1 June for the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport (BBGA). 

Avisure has been supporting the aviation industry for over 25 years, and as their collective knowledge grew, shared that expertise globally. One positive from the pandemic has been the growth and refinement of online meeting and webinar technology, which has brought even greater opportunities for global knowledge sharing. 

Training: meeting compliance and
increasing capability

Avisure has been busy during the pandemic supporting airports that are taking the opportunity of the downturn to focus on staff training not only to meet compliance but also to increase their wildlife risk mitigation capability.

Avisure managing director, Phil Shaw, was in the news recently. He was speaking to ABC News as an expert member of the Gold Coast Ibis Management Coordination Group (IMCG), established in the 1990s following an ibis strike on a Qantas jet at Coolangatta. With engine replacement, downtime and schedule changes, that A300 strike in 1995 cost the airline an estimated $8 million. 

In the ABC report on the canny Gold Coast ibis, Shaw said: ‘They're very smart’. ‘They've worked out that if they go to places where there's a flying fox camp, or next to the road where it's really difficult for us to get to … they're kind of protected and they know they can keep breeding.’

We’re part of the solution!

‘We’re part of the solution’: that was the 2021 theme for World Biodiversity Day, celebrated on 22 May. It’s also true of the work Avisure does in cooperation with airports in Australia and internationally. Avisure is proud that only not only does their wildlife hazard management expertise help airport operators to make their airports safer, but it often also has a direct and positive impact on the biodiversity of native plant and animal species at these sites.
