Hello Calgarians (and others),
This summer I will be heading to Banff for a GAP-year from University. Before I head out into the wilderness I really want to do some plane spotting. I will be spending a few days in Calgary and was wondering if there are any spotting locations around YYC where I can get to on foot or by public transport (I will not have a car). Will there be any other spotters around? Is plane spotting popular at YYC?

Spotting is quite popular at CYYC, and the authorities are very supportive, including having an Airport Watch program.
Most of the more popular spots are not accessible by any form of public transit, however. I have a spotting guide for CYYC that I can send you if you PM me your email. If I happen to be in town I can meet you and drive you to a spot.
