Official Spotting Locations

Parking Garage

Best view for approach and departure traffic as well as gates 1-3 on the south side of the terminal. Access is gained through the main entrance and is $2.00 or the first hour and $1.00 for each additional hour. This spot is good year round but can be hot in the Summer months. 150-200mm lens suggested.

Aviation viewing lot

The viewing lot is accessed by taking Wright Brothers Way north. There is a covered picnic table. This area has some trees that occlude the viewing area of the north end of the runway, however, if flights are taking off from 35, once can see them once they clear the tree line. This spot is better in the Fall/Winter. Requires at least a 300mm lens.
