English term or phrase: a bird strike
The possible cause of the crash of the Air France Concorde was a bird strike.

I know what it means, but I need to know if there is a consensus in its translation to Spanish in the field of aviation.

Trabajé siete años en aeronáutica y nunca escuché otra forma de describir este suceso más qué decir que "un pájaro/ave se introdujo en la turbina" Para ser más específico puedes decir que fue "succionado por la turbina", pero no cambia demasiado. (Al menos que se trate de un pájaro que haya impactado el parabrisas del avión y lo haya dañado, cosa que sería muy extraña)
Espero te sirva. Mucha suerte!
