About This File

By Stick and Rudder Studios

X-ATC-Chatter is a collaboration with LiveATC.net to bring high quality ATC audio clips to the flight simulation community. X-ATC-Chatter is a collection of audio files designed to support the controller chatter playback capability in Pilot2ATC. The product also includes a stand-alone player for X-Plane 10 and 11 for those people that don’t use Pilot2ATC. The stand-alone player also features an integration with X-Life 2.1 ATC as well as the X-Plane 11.3 above ATC system.

You can download and try a set of sample files and the stand-alone player for free. Use the following link to read the user guide and download a free set of samples:



The clips are derived from LiveATC.net archives and have the following characteristics:

  • Clips are broken down into separate files each of which represents a single exchange between a pilot and an ATC facility such as Clearance, Ground, Tower, Departure, Center, Approach, and for VFR CTAF.
  • The separate files for each exchange allows Pilot2ATC, and the future player, to insert pauses between playback allowing for you to interact naturally with ATC.
  • The clips are categorized by world region so you can install a collection of clips for the area of the world you are flying in. Version 1.6.3 has the following file counts by region:
    • United States: 6,428
    • Europe: 5,681
    • Canada: 4,457
    • South America: 0
    • Asia: 3,988
    • Africa: 32
    • Oceania: 2,576
  • Clips are edited to remove any glaring location specific information. As an example the exchange “United 6626, Boston Tower, Line up and Wait” will have been edited to say “United 6626, Tower, Line up and Wait. References to specific SIDS, STARS, Ramps, Taxiways, Runways, and way-points are not changed.
  • Clips are organized by controller so when you are tuned to a specific controller in Pilot2ATC you will hear clips associated with that controller.
  • Each clip has its audio volume adjusted so that all clips have roughly the same volume level.
  • Includes a stand-alone player for X-Plane 10 and 11
    • Runs on all three OS platforms, Windows, OSX, and Linux
    • Automatically selects the right chatter files based on the ATC facility you are tuned to on your COM1 radio
    • Will automatically pause playback when tuned to an ATIS facility
    • Includes a nearby facility display showing the frequencies, icao code, distance, and name of up to 40 ATC facilities within a 75 NM range
    • Includes an integration with X-Life 2.1
    • Includes an integration with ATC in X-Plane 11.3 and above


  • X-Plane 11 (or X-Plane 10)
  • Windows, Mac or Linux
