To bring air service to Houston's population of more than four million, the Houston Airport System has three facilities; George Bush Intercontinental Airport, William P. Hobby Airport, and Ellington Field.
Together they form one of North America's largest public airport systems and position Houston as the international gateway to the south central United States.
HoustonSpotters wishes to say THANKS to HAS for being one of the most spotter-friendly airport systems around!
The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is housed in Houston's original art-deco air terminal at William P. Hobby Airport. The Museum showcases the rich heritage of civil aviation, including the airlines, general aviation and business aviation. Exhibits include Houston's fascinating aviation history.
The Trent Valley Aviation Society was formed in the 1980s to provide aviation enthusiasts in the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire area with access to a group of like-minded individuals. Originally the society organised minibus trips to most airshows in the UK, but more recently has focused on regular member meetings and on occasional days out. We are a friendly group of aviation enthusiasts who welcome anyone, regardless of their aviation interests - our group is made up of enthusiasts, aircraft spotters, professionals who work in the industry, pilots, former service personnel and those who just have a passion for things that fly.
The Aviation Society or TAS as it is widely known, is the largest aviation society outside London with over 2,000 members and 34 years of experience.
Based at Manchester Airport, our continuous and constantly growing popularity is witness to the comprehensive range of activities provided to members at a modest subscription. Whatever your aviation interest, you can be sure that TAS will cater for your requirements!
Recently, both TAS, and HoustonSpotters were featured in an article by the Houston Airport System. They are a spotting group, just like HoustonSpotters, and we are glad to have friends with similar interests across the world!
