Hi
I am a medical gounded commercial pilot been that way for about 12 years now.
Heart condition. Two open heart surgery's.
The only way any more for me to fly is flight Sim's and since I am on a small fixed income its a free one. So there are not to many bells and whistles.
Ysflight if anyone is familiar with it?
And yes I know its a really bad consolation to the real thing.Sim>>real.
Absolutely no feeling of flight.No procedures no contacts. No adrenaline although I tried to avoid that as much as possable wink.
I used to fly out of KSYR,Hancock. But now live in West Virginia (Not covered here BTW).
So basically I am trying to get some sort of feeling of being back in the right seat again.

 smiley Hi, my name is Julius. I have been interested in aviation for most of my life(55 years old). My first flighrt was CHC-WLG In a Vickers Viscuont in 1964; my last flight was last week in a B733 CHC-AKL return. I have had about 50 International flights & innumerable domestic flights. The whole family is interested in aviation; at the moment, I have 2 brothers overseas, they will be back in CHC on Friday morning after being away for 4 weeks. So you can see I have a healthy interest in all things aviation for quite some time, although, I guess, not as long as some people on this site!  smiley

I began using HF communications in the AF to receive and relay position reports to ATC from aircraft flying over the Caribbean, my next assignment took me to a new squadron where the comm. equipment hadn't fully been implemented before I left for Panama, where I ran phone patches to S. American capitals to U.S. Consulates and military missions. Next, to England for more HF air/ground communications, three years at that, then one year of MARS station work in GA, followed by UHF communications in Vietnam near the end of the conflict. At this point I re-trained into ATC, and worked a RAPCON in CA for eighteen months before going to work at an FAA tower, where I remained for twenty-one years. At the end of my AF career I began flight instructing, and recommended several students for their instrument check rides, as well as numerous private pilot recommendations. ATCs working as flight instructors was frowned upon by FAA, so I gave that interesting job up to concentrate on my new career. At present I am a daily user of X-Plane and I keep up my instrument skills in the B-787, a wonderfully maneuverable aircraft.

Glad to be here with such a diverse crowd. I learned about this place from my subscription to FlightAware newsletter.

Dad was Army Air Corps, taught night instrument B-24 to lady ferry pilots, and primary in Ryan aircraft. I was eight when I could reach the rudder pedals and have been flying as I could afford it since. This site helps me a lot to slake that interest that just won't go away (are you gonig to play ball or just look at planes)

We'd like to get an idea of what careers or hobbies our listeners have.  What attracted you to this site and what might have caused you to be interested in listening to air traffic control communications?

We realize some of you may fall into multiple categories - just select the one you feel describes you best.

Thanks, and welcome to LiveATC.net!  I hope you enjoy the site.

Dave

I'm an air traffic controller at NorCal Tracon located in Mather, CA.  This is an awesome site.  I had no idea so many people were interested in atc pilot communications.

Hello,
I'm a computer programmer by trade but flying is in my blood. Both my mom and dad were WWII era
pilots and I grew up among Flying magazines, gatherings of pilots, and hours at the airport
from as far back into the 50s as I can remember. Mom taught me alot about flying in the right
seat, she taught the cadets at Embry-Riddle so she is a natural.
I really enjoy listening to ATC Live and all the activity around KBOS. Thanks to all who
contribute the feeds and help me remember those special times in our little Cessna "Two To Tango".

I'm a Private Pilot, and have been since 1976. I like listening to atc, and find it is also a great learning tool 8-)I also enjoy the posts from young student pilots, before they go solo. brings it all back.my first solo was almost my last.I landed on a grass runway that crosses a paved runway(which is a little higher)and as I hit the bump from the paved rwy,I pushed the throttle in again .. got it stopped about ten feet from a fence.. took awhile for the leg to stop shaking..

I'm a rational non-violent student of the universe, currently pre-occupied with this chemtrail/contrail broohaha.  I was doing some surfing today and came accross this forum.  I also came accross http://flightaware.com/live/airport/KSLC which as some of you might be aware of.  I figured on days when I see a lot of "trails", I might try and identify some of the aircraft over me - whether they are truly commercial flights, or something more "sinister".  The above flight tracking sight is delayed by 5 or 10 minutes, so I was wondering if this is the best available ATC monitoring system for your armchair conspiracy buff, or is there something better? 
Any contrail comments are welcome as well.

Love this place!

I hold Commercial/Multi/Instrument and A&P and currently own and fly a North American T-28 and Piper Geronimo twin. I enjoy teaching students on our ATC 610 flight simulator using the ATC LIVE.net feeds as a way to spark /keep interest in flying. I am writing new instrument approaches for Mexico and the MMUN feeds are very critical to the approaches in a sense they make it all seem real! Thanks for the website! 8-

I occasionally listen to the audio site to track my  family's airline movements in real time (assuming their DEPT/ARR airports are online).

I retired last year as an Airline Pilot after 25 years of service and flew jets for almost 33 years. I have flown or am type rated in most of the modern Boeing and Airbus family of jets both internationally and domestically. I was a USAF/ANG pilot for about 10 years as well.

Nice site overall!
