Tracking a flight coast to coast including coms on LiveATC


New member
Was wondering if Kelsey or any commercial pilots or airline enthusiasts can help me out with this. I like to track aircraft using either Plane Finder, FlightAware of FlightRadar24 and I like to listen to those aircraft using LiveATC. I attempted to track my childrens flight from LAX to BOS which is easy enough with any of the flight tracking apps but gets a bit difficult with LiveATC. I am trying to figure out how I would be able to find the frequencies and names of the sectors they are flying through so I can listen on LiveATC. From KLAX this is how I listened to them as far as I remember. Ground then Tower then Departure, then they were handed off to Los Angeles Center (ZLA) and this is where it all fell apart. There are many ZLA Sectors and names I just had to skip around to find the LiveATC feed and I only caught the flight one time over Chicago area and then it again gets easier once they are in the last 40 minutes of flight into their destination. So is there anyone that knows how I could figure out the frequencies and sector names ahead of time and maybe what frequencies they would be on in a geographic area are they on a sectional or is this all done with flight planning software for the airlines. It would be awesome FlightAware was able to track the flight and listen in on coms and switch coms as they fly into different sectors. Any help would be great. Thanks
