FEATURED SPOTTER OF THE MONTH (OCT'22)
Updated: Jan 4
Following on the success of our weekly “10 Questions With” segment, our team at APP have started up a new Monthly Spotter Feature on our website and Instagram profile, showcasing aviation enthusiasts based in Singapore and abroad. The concept and motivation behind this project is to bring the community closer together, and to shine a light on the community we coexist in with hopes of raising awareness with regards to our hobby and to provide a chance for all spotters to be seen both locally & internationally.
This month's Featured Spotter shines a spotlight on young 14 year old Goh Sze Han, a Singaporean spotter we have had the pleasure to know recently. Sze Han features his aviation photos mainly on Instagram , so do check out his profile as well!

Love for Airplanes
What is your favourite?
Aircraft : The Airbus A350-900
Airline: Either Singapore Airlines or All Nippon Airways! Both are equally as good!
Livery: Definitely the ANA BB8 that has been removed or the ANA R2D2 livery
Airport and spotting location: My favorite airport is Singapore Changi Airport, However, my favorite spotting location is definitely Mai Khao Beach in Phuket! I highly recommend going there to plane spot towards the end of the year as you get very close to the planes when they are landing and can feel the jet blast of planes when they are taking off!

The most insane experience i had while spotting was when i was in Phuket, when the local police helped me to check what planes were coming in when my phone was low on battery.
