It is double sided and designed so that you fill out one side, fold it, tape it closed and drop it right in the mailbox – no postage necessary. The FAA also makes available an online reporting system at the Airport Wildlife Hazard Mitigation web site or via mobile devices at I have also included here the Advisory Circular that provides more details on what constitutes a strike and specifics on reporting.
