Ratings and Reviews
Great for student pilots the aviation curious and old professionals
When I was learning to fly a struggle a bit with communications and talking on the radio, and my instructor point to me into this app which let you listen into pilots and controllers talking to each other at airports both small and big. I got to practice listening to read backs and then see whether I could catch all the information.
It's amazing to be able to pull up radio calls from airports all around the country and be able to listen to what radio comes sound like when the weathers good when the weathers bad on a busy day, during a major air show, and it's all as close as my phone.
Love the app, why the criticism?
It’s strange how many 1-star reviews criticize either the availability of a particular field or the quality of the reception. Do they realize the feeds are crowd sourced? One guy complained about paying $4 for the app. Well, this app is worth every penny of $4 for those interested in aviation like me. If you want a field added, then go buy a scanner and hook it up. If you’re dependent on this app for a critical operational function that is broken when the feed goes down, then you’re insane, buy a VHF radio. In the meantime, try to accomplish 5% of what this app does for $4 and I’ll applaud you cheapskates with both hands.
Great app - a couple suggestions to improve
Very useful to find out firsthand what’s happening in preparation for travel. And with more and more gate to gate satellite-based inflight Wi-Fi you can follow your flight throughout.
That said - please consider the following:
1) Please list the frequencies a station is covering as per of the table cell when opening to select a feed (favorites, change channel, or directory). When listening to the feed there is a list. This doesn’t need the description- just a comma separated list of frequencies.
2) Would be great to have more than airport diagram linked, but also departure/arrival/approach plates.
3)This one is tougher and not sure it’s possible. But would love to be able to enter a flight number and find what channel the flight is on.
4) In the feed frequency page, it would be great to know if feeds are mixed, or if a stereo split then which feed is in which ear. This probably means a bigger change but it would be helpful.
Thanks for a great app and thanks to everyone who provides feeds to the system.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
