RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A division of the N.C. Department of Transportation is offering a series of training sessions to help airports deal with wildlife.

NCDOT’s Division of Aviation is offering the first of four training sessions on Wednesday at Statesville Regional Airport.

The sessions are open to North Carolina airport personnel who are responsible for handling wildlife hazards to aviation. Birds and other animals can damage planes on the ground or cause accidents by flying into the engines or roaming on airport grounds.

Sessions are also scheduled for Albert J. Ellis Airport near Jacksonville on May 19; Asheville Regional Airport on June 25; and Moore County Airport on Dec. 2.
