I will be flying to PIE in early March and have never been there before. Is the airport layout flow right? What should I expect. Is there a good place to spot?

Then I will be flying out of SFB, same questions as above.

Are they both good airports?

Thanks in advance

I can comment on SFB. Early March should provide you with some decent spotting. I am not exactly sure when the charter season starts, but it is bound to be better than the current conditions. When you go, you should plan for a Friday or a Saturday. Those are the busiest days for the British charters.

Im not sure what you mean by "flow right". If you have more than several hours, you might want to hire a car. There are a couple of good spots around the airport, but beware, the Sanford Airport Authority isn't too keen on photographers hugging the fence. You may want to employ gorilla tactics when shooting.  Wink

I was there in early October and had no trouble what so ever. But, from what i hear however, that isn't the case for others.



Slower traffic, keep right

I worked at PIE a few years ago. It is a really cool airport. No Jetways,airstairs only, quick baggage claim and ground transport access, and fast routes to major highways. It's always amazed me that so few airlines fly there.

We are flying out of SFB on a Saturday. That would be cool to see some widebodies. I will try to get some pics to include in my TR.
