The aim of this article is to present findings of simulation research of a stork impact with a helicopter windshield. Besides we developed a numerical model of the stork, based on biometrical data, taking into account various properties of its head, neck, torso and wings. It appears that the research findings which take into consideration the bird’s shape differ from those using a simplified bird model in the shape of a cylinder or a sphere. In order to conduct an analysis of a bird impact onto an aircraft windshield, we used the LS_DYNA software package. In the classic variant with the 3.6 kg bird model, cylinder-shaped with spherical endings, the windshield became damaged at the velocity of 200 km/h for a standard windshield (3.81 mm). For the same velocity, we conducted simulation which used the multimaterial model. It appeared that the windshield did not become damaged. Therefore, the shape of the dummy bird also affects the velocity at which the damage occurs. Too wide simplification of the dummy bird shape may lead to lowered values of the velocity.
