Add Real ATC sound to your flight

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I found a neat site that has streaming ATC audio. http://www.liveatc.net/Basically, just go to the site and in the top left enter the airport you want to listen to then select how you want to listen to it in either Flash, Java or MP3. I just did a couple flights and didn't have any issues and heard it fine. I chose the Flash option and just left IE running behind FS. I've been listening to KBOS all morning, it's pretty cool so wanted to pass it along.Also, you can choose a lot of different freqs to listen to such as Clearence, Ground, Tower, Approach, Departure, etc... etc...~Enjoy

I use those kinda sites a lot even on Vatsim, If no approach controllers are online I will tune in and find out what STARS and runways are in use. It's also nice to have a listen on the long oceanic crossings

I found that site pretty good when I did my "study" of real life ATC before I had my first flight online on VATSIM. The FSX atc is not 100% accurate and you'll hear frases on liveatc.net that you'd never hear from the FSX atc

Thats a great site Dan, I've been listening to it for some time, but never thought of using it in flightsim. If you are new to it, check out the archives, hours of listening pleasure. One of my favorites is the archive of the attempted FedEx DC-10 takeover. Listened to it a hundred times and it still sends chills up my back.

I use that as well in FSX. I once took a US airways out of BOS using the live controllers voice.

Hi Dan,There's also an app for LiveATC on the iTunes app store - worth a look if you have an iPhone/iPod touch! The reason it's got a low rating is people are complaining that it doesn't stream UK ATC channels - when it's actually illegal for them to do that for the UK! I'm from England myself and own the app - I have no complaints and find it just as good listening to the channles from over the pond. I would recommend it to any flight simmer - an excellent learning tool for ATC R/T! :(

Hey Bill, I never thought of listening to the Archives, or seen they had that option, thanks. Question though, what are you listening to for the Fed-ex attempted takeover? Such as timeline but also, tower, approach etc...Thanks for mentioning it. I will listen to some when I get home. The laptop I'm on right now has terrible volume and the background sounds drowned it out.@Harry, yeah I saw those apps on the page above, thanks. Unfortunately I don't own any of those devices currently but will keep it in mind should I happen to get one :(.

That's a great idea Rob. I was just keeping it on for background noise but being that my sim time is as late as it is, I don't get much traffic in my area. I listen to, even at the largest hubs so I listen to other countries hehe.

This website is pretty cool, I used it a few times to follow an AFR flight a relative was oninto its approach at JFK airport. Allong with the NYC port authorities moving map of the flight and flightaware, it's really nice !That's how I discovered that A380s had the "super" callsign suffix for wake turbulence.

Dan, you just have to browse thru the archives and you will see it plain as day unless they changed everything around. They are MP3 files of recorded ATC interaction. I believe the FedEx takeover was in 2 parts, part one and part 2. You are listening to the radio between FedEx 705 and the tower, and between the tower and ground emergency. It's been pruned for time purposes, but is the main part of the radio transmissions from the first mayday to the clearance to land. Edit- I just checked the archives and they have changed things around. The MP3's are under "Interesting recordings" (browse the left side of the home page, you'll find it) and I cant find the FedEx clip there, but I did find it over here - http://www.liveatc.net/forums/atcaviation-audio-clips/fdx705/?action=dlattach;attach=2313Also for you non-iPhone people out there, they do have a mobile beta site that I use with my BlackBerry all the time, works great!

Ahhh, thanks Bill, will check it out soon enough! Appreciate you looking into it for me and saving me some headaches.Taylor, that sound clip is outrageously funny and I only heard a little of it so far. I'll need to make some edits and incorporarte some of these clips into a FSP radio chatter set!!!

Really a great and useful site that is. Have listened to it for quite a few hours...

Whoa that's incredible. When was that? Anything to read on the subject? Although I didn't understand every single word I found it pretty scary and exciting. :(sig.gif

I listened to allot of them this morning and some are pretty funny. I was surprised to hear how relaxed it tends to get at large hubs. Lots of humor as well. I guess I think of my military experience and hearing my CO or LT always yelling at everyone to "USE PROPER RADIO PROCEDURES!!!" haha.That Fed-Ex one is pretty scary in the beginning. Is that the one where they had a passenger that was a flight engineer that left a suicide not to his gf and beat the pilots with a hammer or something like that (been a while since I seen it).

I imagine the video's may have been possibly exagerate since it shows him rolling the aircraft several times and changing altitudes several thousand feet up and down. I was surprised ATC never said anything about all the changes of direction and huge differences in altitude.

The one thing LiveATC is missing is a frequency at Atlanta. As of now there is only one sector of center-space thats somewhere down south. (Don't lecture me on why they don't, I know why, but it would be nice.)

Yeah, I wish they had a lot more in Europe also.
There are still countries which unfortunately won't allow this for a reasons noone understands, you can only listen to R/T either from an ATCO's position or an A/C. Using a scanner for personal use let alone feeding a public live stream might actually not be allowed... sigh :(sig.gif

Yeah I know allot of Europe doesn't allow it and have much stricter restrictions than the USA and other countries. I am really amazed that so much is available to the public. My first reaction is normally, "Wow, I can't believe they allow it". Maybe down the road things will change and they'll have sites like flightaware and skyvector, Runwayfinder etc... I just hope things don't change for the worst and the places that do allow them all of a sudden restrict them. :(

@ Dan- I'm sure there was some dramatic license used in the re-enactment, but that stuff about the rolls and altitude pitches are in fact very true. That DC-10 (N306FE if I'm not mistaken) is still in use with FedEx (MD-10 now) and has the dubious distinction of being the only DC-10 to travel as fast as that one did during this attempted takeover. The airspeed is said to have gone beyond the physical parameters of the gauge during one of the dives that it took. There is a really good read on it somewhere and an interview with the pilot. When I get off this blackberry and onto my computer I will find them and post them.Edit:Here is a good read on it including CVR transcripts-http://www.tailstrike.com/070494.htmAnd the location of an mp3 audio clip interview with the pilot here-http://www.airlinepilotforums.com/cargo/16437-interview-fedex-705-captain-hijacked-flight.html
