has an airprot Tour not sure if it is running but here is a link to that (kinda interesting anyone ever venture this?)
Our experienced team run regular bus tours under the motto "TOUR THE AIRPORT". The tour starts in the public area of the airport (next to the charterbus parking lot) and leads to the non-public area where you will be familiarized with airport supply plants, Cargo Handling Area, Aircraft Maintenance, General Aviation Areas and the Airport Fire Department. Then you can watch on the apron the groundhandling of commercial aircraft from close up. Depending on the air traffic you get to know from short distance the current commercial aircraft from the Canadair up to the jumbo jet from short distance, observe the procedures of approach, taxiing and starts and will learn more on the electronic landing aids as well as on the air-traffic control system.
I am unable to find and Spotting Guides for VIA. . But im sure someone has the insight.
