About Us

Welcome to Airport Spotting Blog – a website for aviation enthusiasts and professionals. My name is Matt Falcus; I’m a UK-based aviation writer.

It’s a big interest of mine to spend time visiting airports around the world and to fly on many different airlines and aircraft. I do this as a hobby, but I’m also an author of a number of aviation books, and regularly write for consumer aviation magazines. I’m also a private pilot (check out my other site, Digital Pilot School).

I started this website in 2006 as a way to report on news and airports from around the world and to be a resource to aviation enthusiasts and aviation professionals. I love to write about aviation and to share tips and as much information as possible, to help those with a similar hobby make the most of it and to be well prepared for their own trips.


Please send me your latest press releases and news of airport and airline events. As you will see from posts on this blog, I have regularly covered news stories and worked with many airline and airport clients.

I am available to cover airport ceremonies, route openings, delivery flights, and enthusiast events. Feature your airport and the great work you do! Please contact me.

As a freelance aviation writer and expert, my work has appeared on outlets such as:


I hope you enjoy your visit to Airport Spotting Blog.



World Airports

I have written a number of books about airline and airports, and most notably the Airport Spotting Guides series.

The most recent book is World Airports Spotting Guides, which features over 300 airports around the world. It is full of tips on where to spot, with maps and directions, as well as information on the best spotting hotels and aviation museums.



If you have a report or some information from an airport that you think would be of interest to spotters, or a trip report, please contact me
