Hi All,

Next summer I am planning to spend a couple of weeks in Germany and Holland. While in Germany, I will be mostly in Hannover. I was wondering if there are any spotters from Hannover on this forum? I'm seeking advice on spotting locations, and I would also like to know if the airport is 'spotter friendly'; in a nutshell - would I have any problems with the police and security there? It would be also nice to catch up with some spotters there. By the way, I speak a little German, so there should be no major language barriers   .

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Andrei

HAJ is defenetely spotter-friendly. This is quite a good guide through HAJ, unfortunately only in german (so you can practice a bit more your german skills   )

Many thanks!
Reading German is no problem whatsoever; it is speaking that I need to practise more. It is not so easy, finding someone who is able and, more importantly, willing to speak German in Australia.

HAJ is a (mostly) spotter friendly airport and sometimes we even have some interesting airplanes here!

At the airport you will always meet a lot of us and feel free to contact me (ChrischMue) or other spotters through the forum.

Thanks, Christian!

I have just signed up at the forum. Was pleased to find that I have no problem reading it   .

I'll get in touch with you closer to the time of my visit to Germany. It should happen in the second half of July 2013.

Cheers,

Just one more question, Christian. Where can I find information about smaller GA airfields around Hannover?

Thanks, Christian.
I wish I could explore them all... But Braunschweig and the GA airfields seem like a must.
