FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 doesn’t contain any ATC chatter sound files by default. Adding ATC chatter files to FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 is simply a matter of copying your own favourite chatter files to the appropriate folder in the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 folder structure. You will be able to find an extensive collection of ATC chatter files on the Internet, at one of the large file libraries dedicated to Flight Simulator.
ATC Chatter in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011
The ATC chatter feature in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 allows you to play various ATC chatter files based on geographic location, the flight phase you are in, and even on the frequency tuned on the COM1 radio.
Be aware that FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 doesn’t include any ATC chatter files when installed. Instead, you should add your own sound files suiting the area in which you fly. To learn more about adding ATC chatter files and the folders to use, click here.
Note! The geographic area you are flying in is determined by the settings you make in the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 options panel, and not your current geographical position in Flight Simulator. This means that if you specify in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 that your departure airport is in Europe (West), but then take off from an airport in Australia, you will still hear the ATC chatter that is located in the Europe_(West) folder due to the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 setting.
