If you’re an aviation geek like me, you already know about the Live ATC website and apps. However, if you’re just starting out or getting into it (etc.), you’ll want to check out this amazing resource. Founder Dave Pascoe originally launched LiveATC.net as a small place on the web to share live air traffic communications from Boston’s Logan airport. But since then it has grown rapidly and become a popular resource for those who enjoy listening to and talking about air traffic control (ATC). It’s used by aviation enthusiasts, student pilots, student air traffic controllers, flight simulation enthusiasts, FBO operators, airline operators, and even by nervous flyers who want to simply get a peek into a world they don’t normally get to experience.
LiveATC.net was the first site to provide both live and recorded ATC audio transmissions with instant archive retrieval and it’s free to use. Just search the airport/ARTCC code or frequency or click on their world map and you’ll be tuned in and listening.
