Since it`s launch LiveATC has grown rapidly and become a popular resource for those who enjoy listening to and talking about Air Traffic Control (ATC)…aviation enthusiasts, student pilots, student air traffic controllers, flight simulation enthusiasts, FBO operators, airline operators, and just about anyone with an interest in aviation communications. It’s even used by nervous flyers who want to simply get a peek into a world they don’t normally get to experience.
We remember using ourselves to sharpen our phraseology and understanding more about complex airspaces. Even today we visit the site and listen to airports we would like to visit someday in a shiny bird.
For those who are more computer-savvy than us, you might be able to help LiveATC widen their coverage. If you are within listening range (10-15km/6-10 miles) of an airport and have an airband-capable (VHF 118-136 MHz) receiver, please consider becoming a LiveATC air traffic control feeder site. If you live close but don’t have equipment you may qualify for loaner equipment from LiveATC.
