Apps we recommend
1) FlightAware – find out details of any flight, either in the past, in flight, or upcoming. Includes real-time data with flight path.
2) LiveATC – Real-time radio communications of control towers across the country. Stuck on the ground and waiting to take off? You can use the app to listen in to what the delay is all about.
3) FlightRadar24 – What’s that aircraft flying overhead? Point your smartphone camera to it and get a data block just like an Air Traffic Controller would see – flight info, speed, altitude, airline, tail number, destination, etc.
4) Awesome LIVEstream of ATC traffic with rendered sim airplanes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQQK0iR5iBU
