Spot #6: P2 Long Term Parking Garage

dude8472productions.com

 

Summary:
A multi-story parking garage with a distant view of all movements on runway 17L and the north side of the new terminal. Rotations from 35R departures are visible too. Towards the southern end of the facility, you can see taxiway Romeo in the distance in addition to the Air Canada hangar and some of taxiway Juliet.


Pros:

The location offers a nice view of the runway, along with the northern part of the new terminal that's currently under construction.


Cons:

It may be high up, but it's very far from the runway. Rotations from 17L takeoffs will be blocked by the new terminal.


Security:

I have not had any issues with security from this location.


Notes:

You'll need a LOT of zoom to get anything from this location. Allow a couple minutes to drive up to the top level. When driving in to the  entrance off of Airport Road, head to the "Through Traffic" lane, and keep driving until you reach the P2 long term entrance. Best place to stand is near Stair #4. Parking starts at $10.00CAD and increases by another $10 each hour.
