Windshields are also a concern when considering birdstrikes. A Hawker 700 has a speed restriction of 220 knots below 6000 feet if the windshield heat has not been on for 10 minutes or more if the outside temperature is more than 15 deg. C or 30 minutes if the OAT is equal to or less than 15 deg. C. A heated windshield is more pliable and therefore better able to withstand a birdstrike without breaking.
