Music while flying recommendation

Recommended Posts

I'm starting to miss some music and chill out beats while flying, especially on VFR flights. Ambient/chill out music is the best for flying, so relaxing while watching the landscape. If you know the music that PilotsEye is playing during cruise, the one with a trumpet, or few relaxing tunes with a piano, you know exactly for what I'm looking for. :)

All recommendations are appreciated!

Cheers!

I believe Pilot's Eye, Viking Aviation, Just Planes, etc pay to get their music from some sort of collection made to be used in videos.  So it won't be that easy to find out the exact tune, unless you contact Pilot's Eye.

 

One suggestion I can give you is to check out some tracks from Yanni.  His music is pretty diverse but he does have some very good chill out instrumental stuff that goes very well with flying.

 

Another would be Kitaro.

 

 

 

 

Kitaro is great for flights around Asia...

I listen to an album called Bossa n' Roses it has a good selection of overall good relaxing music. Got mine on I tunes. I fly my folks and some company managers so they seem to like it as well. It is usually what is playing in my head phones. Other than that its CCR, and the such from the 60's. Good luck in your quest. Cpt out.

Just to add some chili to the cream cake I'd like to recommend Motörhead's latest. Works for all relaxation purposes and will keep you awake though even the most uneventful long hauls. B)

1,650 cu in, V12 Rolls Royce Merlin in all it's goodliness. ;-)

 

That and LiveATC. I'm not sure what it is about the voices on ATC, they always sound so reassuring.

 

I know neither of those are music, but it's my preferred simming sound accompaniment.

BTW I'm not listening to any music on IFR jetliner flights, ATC is really important. :)

You made a good choice, Pe11e! Think I'm gonna get this album from iTunes; would make good driving music, too!

After hearing some of Tycho's work on iTunes, I thought of another artist with a somewhat similar sound, and I thought of the classic jazz album from the Pat Metheny Group called Offramp.

 

I think you'll like Pat Metheny's work; it's solid, with a good rhythm.
