Good evening dear spotters, I've just heard an interesting thing about spotting in France. So, they said that i need a special document or just a paper with stamp to spot in every airport in France. Ang if i had no paper i must pay 500 euros fine. Is it true? I need for your advise! If it's true, please let me know where can i take this paper. Thanks a lot for your attention!

No, this is completely or at least partially false.

Except if you intend to spot at Paris Charles de Gaulle or Paris Le Bourget, you do not need any document or authorization to spot.

Of course you have to respect certain "common sense" rules and some airports are more/less "spotter friendly" than others ...
