Planespotting Observation Areas

Planespotting Observation Areas



Planning and researching different options.


Project Overview


Transform the plane-spotting viewing areas at TUL. The goal is to increase the utilization of designated observation areas, fostering enthusiasm for aviation activity within our community.



Background: TUL’s current planespotting areas are in need of improvements and upgrades. Currently at TUL, the planespotting area has one picnic table and an outdated sign. We are wanting to improve the experience for our Aviation enthuiasts, and provide play areas for younger children to enjoy while waiting for aircraft to take off and land.
