Are you on a commercial airliner or interfering with controllers if you say no to these two answers you’re good


#48

Yes im saying no


#49

Then you’re good to go, as long as you’re not interfering with traffic and just using to listen you’re good

Those are generally scanners which do not have the capabilities to transmit.

I brought my handheld on a delta flight once - when the flight attendant saw it on my lap (thankfully not on), she promptly said that I needed to stow it away and not to bring it out until I was off the plane. I obviously obeyed her instructions… and then immediately opened LiveATC and proceeded to listen to that the rest of the flight - which I do most times.
