if u mean controllers talking in french then no, i'm pretty sure english is required for ATC communication.  if ur talking about a live feed from France then there is none online at the moment.  i reckon its illegal in france like it is in england.  otherwise with so many people in france let alone paris there would have to be atleast one who is willing to give us a live feed.  i'm not sure if it is illegal or not.  anyway just hope one day it'll come.

Not true

If you are say flying in a country and the national language is say French, and you and your initial call up and subsequent call ups converse in French, the ATC will also converse in French.  English is the international language of aviation, but if you are in a country that has a different language (such as Spanish, French, German, Arabic, etc.) and you use their national language, the controllers will also use it with you, while using English with other pilots.  I hope that makes sense.

hello ZHB,

 I'm a french controller so it will be easy to answer your question: for now there is no possibility to listen to live atc from France but i don't think it's illegal.Perhaps in a close future it will be possible.
 About the langage used by us with the pilots: it's french or english.In fact a controller speaks at the same time in english to international pilots and in french with pilots of Air France...that causes in fact some problems of comprehension because pilots don't understand all that the controller says... so there is a project (but it's just a project) which recommends to use only english langage: but it will not happen before about 10 years I think...

Good day.  I do listen to Montreal ACC in french and english, depending on the pilot.  It's fun hearing the weather and ATC instructions in french.  It's like trying a different flavor.

Strictly from an aviation point of view, this must be difficult for all pilots on those frequencies.  Those that do not speak fluent French must have a hard time understanding the complete traffic picture of what is nearby and where they are going.

Looking back over the history of ATC, I am sure that more than one near miss incident or mid-air accident was prevented by an astute pilot who happened to hear on the frequency a discrepancy in the the traffic scenario about to unfold before him.

Actually, the controllers from Montreal really roll their french accents in english, but I've never heard a pilot complain about the french accent.  I actually like it, so I can pick up on some french terminology, except for VOR which is the same in french.  However, they always say "Northwest 55, Montreal center bonjour, you are radar identified".

Over my many years of HF monitoring SP 6/7 frequencies it is quite common to hear the airlines of french nationality such as UTA, Air Caliadonia, Air Tahiti Nui, French Line  etc talking to Tahiti in French regarding operational matters and weather.

They change from Honolulu to Tahiti sector and once established take up the comms in there native language.

We all have our own views on this, but the French are the only ones that seem do it, even if they are a  long way from home on a small Pacific Island. All others use english.

Makes a change if nothing else.

I say why not, I mean communication is very important between ATC and A/C, so if it is a language that you understand better, now the problem is other A/C around that don't understand the language

Hi,

I'm trying to pass my FCL 1.200 in French (Test to (officially) be able to speak French on the Radio).

So I wanted to hear if somebody could hook me up with some French radio calls preferably from CDG or ORY. A mix of Tour, sol et approche if possible.

Merci,

J.

Listen to Schipol and you hear a smattering of French, German, English and the lovely sing songy Dutch.  smiley

I was back home in Tahiti last August, and let me tell you, doing the radio in French after doing it in English for over 7 years was VERY funny ! and hard !

Well here in Tahiti  cool i have no problem understanding what is going on and communicating in French is not a biggie either.

But listening to the DGAC's (French CAA) tapes from CDG or ORY. Was pretty hard and of course CDG is unfamiliar territory. huh
