What we do

Contact us

The Ottawa Airport Watch consists of a group of aviation enthusiasts who frequent the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) perimeter areas to  photograph aircraft movement and observe airport operations. 

In addition to our "spotting" activity, and in partnership with the Airport Authority, members contribute to the overall security of the airport by observing, recording and reporting all suspicious activity or security concerns to the Airport Authority.

Our community service members and their vehicles are clearly identified with high visibility clothing and car flags.
