Public View Decks

The Airport has two free and easily accessible viewing areas where the public is invited to watch aircraft activity. The Runway View Deck and the Public Sky-deck are located on the east and west ends of the Airport Administration Building, at 3223 Donald Douglas Loop South. Both areas are excellent spots to watch airplanes, take photographs, listen to the air and ground activity from the control tower, which is broadcast in the background.

Enjoy a picnic on the view deck or in the green area in front of the Airport Administration building. Public viewing is encouraged between dawn and dusk, 365 days a year. For a different angle, head over to Clover Park at the corner of 25th Street and Ocean Park Boulevard - where there is a viewing area with a telescope focused on the runway.
