Yes it is. You will see the district name Campo Belo to the left of the runways and the district name Planalto Paulista just to the north. My first trips to spotting at CGH was about 1957 when I was 4 and my dad would take me there on Saturdays to watch the DC3 the Curtiss Comandos and the fist plane I got to fly on which was the Saab Scandia operated by Vasp.
