Spotting locations - English version

The most important thing for spotting is to choose the right spot with a focus on great light conditions. Before your departure to the airport you have to check current runway in use (as per flightradar24.com, ATIS informations, over your radioscanner or visually direct at the airport - it´s up to you, which possibility you´ll choose...).
Runway in use at Leos Janacek Ostrava Airport is very flexible. If the wind is light (like 0-5 kts), the approach or departures navigation depends on the communication between pilots and ATC Tower and current traffic there. So you need to be ready for every single situation!

We recommend you to print this site (or to use a tablet), because a phone version is not like we are expected.
