The Protected Areas Database-Aviation (PAD-Aviation) is a subset of the more comprehensive PAD-US v1.1 (CBI Edition). In cooperation with the US Air Force, other military branches, defense contractors, and protected areas specialist PAD-Aviation was tailored to include designations identified as sensitive or potentially sensitive to aircraft over-flight. Avoidance of airspace over various sensitive areas (including many designated protected areas) is mandated by public law, including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and Department of Defense (DoD) Service Branch regulations. Until now, aviators used a variety of sources to help them identify these areas. Sectional charts, Flight Information Publications...

Wind turbines in the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area (APWRA), California, USA, have caused annual fatalities of thousands of raptors and other birds. Alameda County implemented an Avian Protection Program requiring mitigation measures and eventual repowering to modern wind turbines, all intended to reduce raptor fatality rates 50% from levels estimated for 1998-2003. Two years into the 3-year program, we compared estimates of fatality rates between 1998-2003 and 2005-2007 and between a repowered wind project (Diablo Winds) and the APWRA's old-generation wind turbines. The APWRA-wide fatality rates increased significantly for multiple bird species, including 85% for all raptors and 51% for all birds. Fatality rates...
