Welcome to Airport Spotting Blog – a website for aviation enthusiasts and professionals. My name is Matt Falcus; I’m a UK-based aviation writer.
This site has become the go-to place for finding out the latest news about airport developments, aircraft deliveries, new airline routes and all things that the aviation enthusiast loves to keep on top of.
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 site, 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! I am also available as an aviation consultant and researcher. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

- The Telegraph
- Airliner World magazine
- Airplane Geeks podcast
- Airports of the World magazine
- Aviation News magazine
- Aviation Xtended podcast
- BBC Four
- BBC Radio 4
- CNN Travel

- Rudy Maxa’s World with the Careys
