Split the birds, save the aircraft

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has developed an innovative structural concept for protecting aircraft from damage due to bird impact. The “Bird Splitter” structure is located on the aircraft’s tail and designed to “split” an incoming bird and thereby protect aircraft structure and crucial systems. This concept was implemented on the new IAI-manufactured Gulfstream G250 business jet.
