You can sort your ATC chatter files based on the region in which they are recorded. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 supports the following geographical areas: Western US, Central US, Eastern US, Latin America, South America, Canada & Alaska, Europe (West), Europe (East), Middle East/Asia, Africa, Pacific, and South Pacific. You should organize the ATC chatter files according to these geographic areas, as well as for the flight phases (as described below).
When you specify your flight, you can specify the geographic area for your departure and destination airport, as well as for three different enroute areas. This allows you to perform long haul flights that cover various geographic areas, and still get the correct ATC chatter for the area you are currently flying over. While the ATC chatter for the airports are controlled by the various ATC chatter phases described below, you manually control which of the three enroute areas to play by hitting the shortcut key Ctrl-Shift-X. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 will start using files for the geographic area specified in Enroute 1, and advance to the next when you hit the shortcut. This also means that if you perform a flight within one geographic area only, you obviously don’t have to specify the two other enroute areas.
ATC chatter and flight phases
Within each of the geographic areas described above, FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 contains seven different ATC phase folders. The ATC phases are quite similar to the flight phases, although the ATC phases overlap the flight phases slightly. The ATC phases are designed to be as realistic as possible. The various phases are shown in the table below.
