This is a poll for who uses ATC voice and who doesn’t. I personally don’t use it because it gets extremely annoying, and whenever your message comes up, it’s orange instead of gray. Share your comments below!
- I use ATC voice in Live
- I don’t use ATC voice in Live
I just like hearing ATC tbh. Never actually use it for listening
I usually turn it down because I listen to music while flying.
I don’t use it, very annoying:-/
I use because I like to make my flying as realistic as possible
I use it so I can concentrate on other things instead. It can get annoying. It also can get very delayed.
Add sometimes using ATC voice
I’ve actually had headaches before listening to ATC’s voice sometimes because the voice is so boring it never changes its tone of voice, it just talks like a boring robot which gives me a headache in which case I will turn it down.
Very true. It always says “expect delays” really quickly though.
I use it because I set it to a less annoying voice…
@SF34. MaxSez: Reese, At 14 I can understand your fundamental desire to shut out the voice of reason and authority. However, if your goal is to fly IF or RW like a Pro you’ll come to understand that at times in a Flights evolution you’ll not have time to read the small print as you “scan” your environment. The key to success here is the ability to; aviate, “communicate” & navigate… Gooday
I listen to is to scan my airspace and to be realistic, specially in expert server. I do have music in the background but I pay attention to call bouts by ATC and other pilots.
@Gavrilo. MaxAsks: I use “Pandora” for background music. What do you use?
Don’t forget that you also have a great customization option to control sound via the settings icon!
I don’t use it because it gets quite annoying at LAX or any other big airport
As a controller, I use it if I’m working both tower and ground. Just to listen for words like “inbound”, “pushback”, and others so I have an idea of what’s going on around me. Really helps if someone requests a different runway than what’s in use, I find it more urgent to redirect them to the right place than someone who knows where to go, if that makes sense.
I use a app called tune in @Maxmustang but nowadays its either NPR or BBC sometimes my earphones are nothing but news and IF chatter
Great example of situational awareness.
