Air Traffic Control – Explained

Pope Field Air Traffic Control Tower

Air Traffic Control explained so everyone can understand it.

A few years ago I was presented with one of the best “live” explanations of the air traffic control system (ATC).  A docent at the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center, whose name is Roscoe, did a most excellent commentary of the interaction between the pilot and ATC.  He did this in time with supporting images from the prerecorded flight data of the interaction between ATC and the pilot in the background.  You can find the video that I recorded of Roscoe’s excellent demonstration  below.  Also, you can listen to two live ATC streams I provide for Norfolk International Airport and NAS Norfolk Chamber’s Field by clicking on the highlighted links.

Also you may want to listen to other Live ATC on the net:
