It can be either audio or transcription. It would be perfect if it also contains aircraft tracks.

  • $\begingroup$ Location doesn't matter. Preferably recorded not live data. Transcribed recordings are the best thing for me. However, most of the transcriptions that I've found are about some incidents but I need something typical. $\endgroup$ Dec 4, 2018 at 11:58
  • $\begingroup$ What are you trying to do with the recordings/transcriptions? Knowing that might help determine a source, or perhaps alternative way to accomplish your goal. $\endgroup$

LiveATC.net has live and recorded ATC radio for most countries/airports. There are lots of flight tracking websites, e.g. FlightAware, that have live and recorded radar/ADS-B tracks. You'll have to correlate the two yourself.


I'm a PPL student and I use two sources:

  • LiveATC.net web site for getting used to live communication on my local airport and also for analyzing recorded communication during my training flights.
  • VASAviation YouTube channel, which contains many videos capturing communication during aviation incidents, including charts and subtitles.

Yes: Many publicly available accident/incident reports contain communication transcripts; some of those will contain aircraft tracks, too.
