ATC Audio On Cabin Headsets

Tue Jun 05, 2001 10:49 pm

Does any airline besides UA offer ATC communications via passenger audio headsets? Thanks.

Never known an airline to do that, good idea though!

I took my scanner and a pair of head phones on board a flight once. Could pick up almost any frequency in australia because we were so high and in line of site of everything (being a VHF reciever)

I thought HP had some kind of audio made by the same company that provides UA with ATC. But, TAA_Airbus..There was a huge discussion on this in the Tech/Ops forum like 2 weeks ago. Don't lie. You didn't pick up jack with your receiver/scanner. It doesn't work in an airplane. An airplane is a big metal tube with a lot of wires. It would be impossible to hear anything. There would be interference and static. I have tried myself even though it is not safe because of intererence and in most cases not allowed on airlines.

Yes, you can't hear anything no matter what plane, that is a big lie, TAA_Airbus.
