Official Spotting Locations

There aren't any official locations.

Other Spotting Locations

Hill nearby the runway 30, on the south side of the airport. Other good place is on nearby the taxiway C, and under the ATC tower.

Locations to Avoid

None really. There are only few instances known where police has showed up, and even in those situations they just asked few questions and left. During military exercises miltary police can show up, however, if you are outside the fence, they can't do anything legally and usually they are quite reasonable as well. Remember to avoid using the radioscanner, when the police or other staff member is seeing. Some of them may react negatively, if you are listening to the radio, others do not. Listening the ATC is officially illegal in Finland.

Regular Traffic
