Probably should be able to click more than one.  In my case, I am a pilot but I am also a ham radio operator and a scanner enthusiast.

Good evening/day

I'm 18 years old male from Iceland and I'm a Vatsim controller but I really want to become real life ATC in the future. This site is so great and the first time I heard of it (probably about 1 year ago) I couldn't believe it  shocked . Only one thing that I would appreciate : Live feed from the international airport in Iceland = BIKF= Keflavik. So if there is anyone out there with enough power,please  tongue.
Anyway I love this site and enjoy listening to both the life feed and the audio clips.

What's the difference between an ATC and a pilot. If the pilot messes up he dies but if the ATC messes up the pilot dies.

I am the son of a retired military pilot that is currently flying for the airlines.  I've spent many a night using liveATC.net to listen to my dad crossing the Atlantic and landing at JFK or BWI.  Quite amazing.

I am also a ramp agent at Salt Lake Int'l for UPS, and have always had an interest in aviation, ever since I could have a coherent thought.

Right now I am a student pilot at 32 hours looking to finish my PPL by 45 hours, with goals of eventually flying for a career.

I've got clips from my dad's flights, as well as my own.   Like father, like son.  It's great.  Thanks for the service, liveatc.net. Smiley

Hello

I'm a licensed amateur radio operator and communications enthusiast in general. My brother has his pilots license and flies smaller planes in the Ventura county CA area. My buddy Chananya got me posting on here.

I'm the student pilot from Korea that taking flight training in Hillsboro, Oregon.
I don't know how Americans feel when they make a radio call but I'd say that
for most of foreigner student pilot(especially when they are pretty new), radio communication
is one of the most difficult part in their training.

I feel really lucky to find LiveATC and appreciate AJ who's working as a helicopter flight instructor
at HAI.

I picked "none." I am an aviation freak, frankly.  smiley Grew up between two flight paths into and out of KORD and KMDW. Had grandparents with a house under the glidepath of Runway 22 (about a mile from the threshold) at KMSP and live up here in Minneapolis now.

Planes fascinate me - love the way they look on the ground, taking off, land, in the air. Love hearing the ins and out of how they come in and take off .. been blessed with the ability to listen to them thanks to you! Still trying to catch on to the "lingo" so I can envision what is happening as I hear it.

And .. not that you asked .. but the worst day of my life was 9/11/01 when not only were these beautiful beasts of the air used to murder people but when many, many flights were landed in at KMSP and I - as much as I wanted to - I could not go out to the airport to see them. Not because I couldn't physically .. I could. I just couldn't emotionally.  It took me about 5 years to regain my love of all things aviation .. which was a really long time since I live about 2 miles - as the crow flies - from KMSP. 

I thank Dave for this site because being able to listen to the planes and ATC really grew my love tenfold from what it had been before that fateful day.

Thank you for asking the question! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

Hey guys, I'm Pat. I'd say that anything having to do with aviation in general interests me and gets my attention. I'm currently only in high school (I know, I'm a baby rolleyes) and I really want to go to UND for becoming a commercial pilot. But I just love listening to ATC because you never know what you might hear. I've heard some pretty cool stuff!

I'm more of an all-round geek/nerd/anorak to be honest, and I found a fantastic new hobby. I mainly listen in on Kennedy Final Approach at peak hours, which seems to be from about 7pm GMT. I use the traffic map on

http://www.panynj.gov/airports/flight-status.html?view=AIRTRAFFICMAP&apt=JFK

which isn't as detailed as

http://flightaware.com/live/airport/KJFK

but is a bit easier for my amateur eye to follow.

I'm getting to know some of the regular flights, and it's always nice to hear a speedbird or shamrock, as I'm from Scotland. And speaking of Scotland, the clips of Edinburgh EDI/EGPH are nice. Scanning is somewhat legally dubious here, so I don't fancy doing it myself, so thanks to ect76 who has done a great job.

"Speedbird one-seventy-five, turn right heading zero-three-zero, reduce speed to one-six-zero, descend to two thousand and maintain until intercept localizer on three one right"

"Speedbird one-seventy-five, contact tower on one-one-niner point one, good day"

Farmer by trade, but really enjoy most anything aviation related, including Flight Sim, flying powered parachute ultralight,  rc planes, and scanning local atc.  Just haven't been able to justify the time and expense of becoming a real pilot yet.

I am a mechanical engineer specialized in noise and vibrations. My hobbies are shortwave listening, model airplanes and aviation. Too late (56) to be  a pilot, I enjoy myself by analyzing flights during my very frequents flights on airliners. In the process if I hear any noise or feel any vibration that is out of the ordinary for the particular type of aircraft, I get nervous. But listening to LTBA is sheer fun! I know most ATCs by their voices by now.

In addition to my other post on this topic, I'll say that this site sometimes is a very informative site and I thank Dave, Jason, and everyone else who works on this site. For this site to cease being in existence would make it very tough surging the internet.  Thanks again guys. You're all great!
