Cannot hear ATC instructions and other aircraft suddenly while AI copilot still responds

It has absolutely nothing to do with any of this. It happens mid flight after not having any issue while on ground, takeoff or ascent. It just happens at some random point during the flight.

Unless my co-pilot is fiddling with the switches while my back is turned. Yeah, that’s probably it. :smirk:


I’m sure it’s your co-pilot. :wink:

Look at the date when I posted. Back then it was a volume adjustment some had turned down.

I know when you posted it. And yet all these months later, here we are. The problem is worse than ever and, unfortunately, it isn’t the volume switch or my co-pilot. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

The bug has been logged and let’s hope it part of SU8 as SU8 is dedicated to legacy bugs and issues since release.

I had the problem today and I had not activated the AI co-pilot ATC at any stage of the flight.

This needs more votes.


Please can the topic and votes from Cannot hear and see ATC instructions be merged with this. There are many topics raised in the forum regarding this issue and the votes are spread all over the place. It needs consolidation.

This problem had been repeatedly reported for the last six months with no sign of remedy.

Hi @AviatorDown8227,
Votes won’t matter when a report has been logged. Merging the other topic will lose continuity.

This specific topic was requeued less than 16 hours ago.

I’ll bring the other topic up directly.

After reaching cruise altitude i only hear my or my co-pilot reply to the ATC controller. But i don’t hear the ATC controller him/herself. Also no ATC from other aircraft anymore. Azure is still online

I can confirm that bug still exist. Not every flight but if lot of communication is taken by ATC the bug appear often.

I have to chime in. I am also experiencing this. ATC text drops out after a while. Can only see the “You” text in the ATC window


I seem to get this specifically after tuning to an ATIS channel. I get instructions normally then as soon as I use my second channel to tune ATIS, I stop getting any directions of any kind from ATC, and only see responses.


This issue is still in place even after the latest update :frowning:
I found it right now during the flight

Yeah same Problem here with Azure on. No Voice, no Text. Why is Asobo ignoring this?


same problem I guess I restart would fix it

Same issue here.

I cannot isolate the circumstances in which is occurs. I use multiple aircraft types and all too often ATC drops out.

Pretty big issues all round.

Same issue here. It always occurred when atc voice and pilot or copilot voice are playing at the same time. For instance, I’m doing an assisted briefing and at the same time the atc is giving instruction to another plane. The only solution is to completely restart the sim. :frowning:

This just started happening on my last 2 flights and I did request a lot of FL changes both times. The need to request many FL changes is a consequence of using the later FBW builds with their integrated flight planner. The native ATC does not know the planned CRZ level and only gives you some minimum safe altitude. You generally need at least 3 FL requests to get to your planned CRZ level. It would be great if one of the FL options was to enter a number. Anyway, good observation on your part, I will give it a try. Thank You

your workaround worked. Thanks for the tip. - HankLand609

It happens on my end too. The most frequent thing is Azure losing connection (red warning box) then it sounds as if a seven year-old had taken over the ATC! Pilot’s voice sounds weird too.

The ATC going silent situation is maybe not as frequent but it does happened in several instances. I fly A320 and CJ4 mostly.

Do you have your Windows in English?

Because this is even more funny with mine in French. The 7yo girl is speaking English words in French language.

How can I concentrate with this in my headset? :sweat_smile:
