What's your music when flying?

Recommended Posts

I never have music playing while flying. Its too distracting!

 

I do play some music while flying in Battlefield 3 though, Listen to some Metallica and Amon Amarth... Anything Metal to get you going!

thats a long list...Earth, Wind and Fire, Kool and the Gang, Commodores, Parliament, Stevie Wonder, the O'jays, some early Micheal Jackson...Boston, Chicago, Queen, Led Zepplin...and a *little* bit of dubstep

 

All, of course, goes silent when take off is committed and reverse thrust is active, gotta love that spool up! :lol:

 

If you think about it, we simmers should comply with the law and turn off all portable entertainment devices until the aircraft has reached ten thousand feet, so as not to interfere with onboard navigation devices.......... So no music folks!

Engine sounds with headphones.

 

Everyone at work listens to headphones when working (GIS users, data analysts, coders...) but I can't concentrate with while listening to music.

When flying, the engine and other simulator sounds are my music;

The tunes I like the most are the FO singing V1 -> Rotate (With no alarms in the background), and the ATC Cleared to land.

Like others said, too distracting

 

Rarely, when joyriding just above treetops, in the Stearman or the Lancair Legacy, I play some instrumental.

 

Cheers.

Absolutely no music at all. I listen to the drone of the aircraft's engine, the click of the switches in the cockpit, the whirring of the cockpit's ventilation system, the voices of ATC, etc. etc. etc.

Excellent choice.

 

I listen to a lot of electronic and dub step as well, but it can also be smooth jazz.

The only music I hear, is my wife yelling at me to get off the computer! :lol:

 

Otherwise, I enjoy some classical music in the background.

The sounds of the aircraft, nothing more, nothing less.

I think this is still on subject... I downloaded the free FDSFX panel, which I'm sure many of you guys know of, but I'm equally sure many may not have heard of it before. I think it is available on Avsim. It is a fantastic little addon and far surpasses many other payware addons I have. It is used on every one of my flights in the NGX and recently I have added it to my 146 plane too. It comes with more than twenty sound effects, including numerous cabin announcements and sound effects. The great thing about it is, you can access the individual sound files and of course edit or change them at will. So I have changed the rather old fashioned musak that it comes with for some more contemporary tracks and also a couple of cabin announcements. It's just a matter of changing over the WAV files in the relevent sound folder. This allows you to pull up the GUI which for me, sits on a separate monitor with other instruments and then you simply click the relevent switch to play whatever sound you want! If any of you do not have this little app then do yourself a favour and download it. BTW: I've just done a search and I think it's available on the 'other' forum site!
