student LSA pilot about a week away from my checkride, I've been listening to Live ATC to catch on to transmissions from the first day. My flight school is now telling all incoming students to listen in. It really helps pick up the transmission style and helps make it not that intimidating the first time you push the transmit button.   I've been able to listen so often I even recognised some of the local C approach controllers by voice. Great site!!!!

Dad was a B-24 pilot and post war instructor. Got my private in 1971, but haven't flown since the late '80's. In the '50's, we kids rode our tricycles on the 3 runways at Salinas, which was our playground. Our airshows consisted of flour bombing, upwind deadstick spot landing competition, and drunk acts. Have to say it. Those were the days.
    Great site. Glad I found it.

Hi! I actually feel like an intruder here as I'm neither a pilot nor an ATC. I'm an English teacher specializing in aviation English radiotelephone communication and I must thank LiveATC for the opportunity to gain insight into the aviation world. I have always loved airplanes and flying and maybe one day I will have my own license :wink:

My father and other members of my family always showed a passion for everything related to aircraft, so I decided to focus my teaching in that direction.

All the best to those who make flying the safest way to travel...

I'm really none of the options. I'm just someone who hopes one day to become a pilot, but listen to ATC while I save up money.

This is a fantastic site. I especially like Kennedy airport, because I'm a Brit living in Australia, and American accents are practically unheard of.

Besides, of course, one man in Sydney Approach who is quite obviously some sort of American, he has the accent and says "descend and maintain".

Just changed my vote from Student to Private Pilot as I just passed my checkride today!   This site was an invaluable resource. I actually got praise from the examiner who about my radio work. She said I did an excellent job and I think a lot of that is due to listening to ATC here for hours and hours. I can't wait to start hearing my own voice on recordings here as I start doing longer flights to airports beyond my own backyard.

Anything to do with airliners and flying fascinates me. I was in my youth years an airline photo/postcard collector. I am an airline spotter, use to take pictures and hear air traffic communications. I wanted to be a pilot but in those days wearing glasses where not allowed.

I found this site while looking for some information on a local plane crash. I never dreamed about having a recording of the crash much less let alone a web site that had LIVEATC!!! This site, among several, has really fueled my interest to fly and in ATC. THANKS SO MUCH DAVE!!!!!!!

I'm Jamie -waves-. Currently a Amateur Radio operator that likes to travel either by airplane, helicopter, train or by boat. I've been listening to LiveATC for a year now I enjoy using it when I am traveling from one airport to another and listen on to pilots talking to the flight tower. My dad served in the US Marines for 22 1/2 almost 23 years so I got to see the states never went over seas I was too young to go. Thank you LiveATC staff for brining this great site to us!

As of now I'm a student pilot, but I voted Pilot hobbyist (Flight Sim) cause I do that more frequently, obviously.

Real world controller at ZJX.  They did a briefing the other day at work, and this website was included.  The basic gist of the briefing is that people are listening.  Well, nobody outside of the FAA is listening to me because none of the sectors I work are currently on this site.  And the center is in the middle of NOWHERE.

  I am a CPC at Boston Center.   Always have loved listening to ATC conversation and decided to control over fly.  Best decision i ever made     Message for "Jason"  If you are the liaison for the HPN area, how come we are not able to get the Boston center frequencies for the New York area.  134.0, 134.3, 128.1, 125.57.  Most of those are broadcast out of BDR.  Would be a great tool for the trainees at Boston center, I am a newly checkout CPC and would have loved to hear myself going through training.

Hi y'all....I'm one of the few who checked "nervous flyer" on the poll.  :-D

Despite my fear of flying (I do still fly occasionally), I have always been interested in big, loud machines such as airplanes.  I live in Alexandria, VA and am around DCA frequently (riding bike, returning rental cars, etc.) and I have always enjoyed watching the traffic, especially from Gravelly Point.  My next goal is to get a look at the A380, but IAD is a really crappy place for plane spotting, so I'm hoping an airline will start service into BWI at some point.  The other option is to catch the Emirates service into Manchester, UK, next time I'm there visiting friends.

I love listening to ATC and watching trackers on flightstats, flightaware and Casper at the same time (although the delay is annoying).  My favorite ATC feeds are generally DCA, JFK and AMS (those Dutch controllers are so pleasant and calm!).

Thanks for having me on your site!

I'm an architect in California who went to air shows with my family while growing up.  My father and brothers were avid fans of military aviation.  I guess it rubbed off on me.  Anyway, from time to time I like to stream a feed while simultaneously streaming classical music via Pandora or Rhapsody.  Makes for a nice 'white noise' while I work.  I also like to track relatives progress as the travel around.

Thanks for all your work.

Hi there,

My name is Geoff and I fit into a few categories...  I'm an Amateur Radio operator / scanner enthusiast currently living in Alice Springs, Australia. I currently hold a Student Pilot's license (SPL - Passed GFPT) and am working my way towards my PPL.

I worked in the RAAF for several years as a Comms Tech, mainly on HF Air/Ground/Air systems, so have been around both aviation and 'monitoring' for some time.

Since there isn't much to listen to here in the Alice, I've dedicated one of my scanners to provide the YBAS feed.

Cheers,
Geoff
