LiveATC Air Radio lets you easily browse by U.S. state, Canadian province, or by country to find an airport of interest. Once you find an interesting channel you just add it to your Favorites list for quick and easy access! You can also use the Nearby function to find airports near you. We also cover high-altitude (ARTCC/FIR) communications and oceanic (HF radio) traffic.

The LiveATC network is the world's largest network of streaming audio feeds focused solely on aviation-related communications, currently covering over 1,200 airports around the world and over 3,300 different audio feeds and growing daily!

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.

Good app, could be better

It just seems like this app does not have a lot of user-friendly support where you can make complaints on certain feeds for example I listen to the Oakland international airport feed and I am bombarded with ATS automated terminal service I believe constant information they used to have a separate Channel for the main tower that is off-line now and they do not give an exclamation why it’s off-line and enough information to users to find out if that particular feet can be replaced it’s like it’s there one day and gone the next and no reason is given no updates or anything like that on any of these scanner type police radio apps or airport apps that’s just not right and unfortunate to the developer can you please put in some more helpful support so users can get in contact with the feed providers and if they are not up to par find someone else who can do the main towers for Oakland international airport sorry I’m so picky about this but it just seems unnecessary to listen to the automated terminal information stuff when you want to listen to the main runway and tower and the seeds do not sound the same 1 feet is stronger than the other was two speakers thank you

Good, not great.

I much prefer the website to the app.

First, on the website it clearly lists the frequency alongside the description. On the app it will just provide the name (i.e. KSEA Ground) without a frequency. To find the freq you have to select the channel and then select “view frequency.” There is ample room on all pages to show freqs, requiring extra click-throughs is just bad UI.

Second, there is SIGNIFICANT delay on the app vs. the website. The website is typically within a few seconds of real-time, whereas the app takes a very long time to load a channel and consistently has delays of 30 seconds or more. If you’re listening to ATC in conjunction with plane spotting, such a delay makes the app practically unusable. I’m still a huge LiveATC supporter and the website is still an excellent resource, unfortunately this app is poorly built with too much lag to be useful.
