Official Spotting Locations
From the airport entrance, continue east on Butherus until you reach the general aviation terminal. A quick drive both directions from the terminal will reveal nooks & crannies in which bizjets can be read off. Once complete, turn around back to Scottsdale Road. Drive south on Scottsdale Road to Redfield Road and turn left. Drive east on Redfield Road. The streets leading north off of Redfield bring you very close to the southeast perimeter (76th Place in particular) - and offer great viewing of aircraft parked across the runway.
Scottsdale is best visited in the wintertime, and on Fridays, when bizjet activity is more prevalent.
