Blocked Numbers


#1

If a plane has opted to block it’s tail numbers will it still show up as an “unknown” departure or arrival at a particular airport, or will it not show up at all?


#2

Using N1KE as an example…

HUM-AIR LLC (BEAVERTON OR)
This flight is not available for tracking per request from the owner/operator

Blocked flights will not appear on the airport boards.

I just flew into my local airport and checked FA after landing. On the little map in the upper right the only aircraft showing information (n#, type, speed, alt) was a GIV showing up about 100miles away. When I looked up the tail number it said blocked. Also when I expanded the little map into a full page it did not show up. I thought this was interesting.

I just pulled up LWS Lewiston, ID and its showing up on their local map too.

I too have encountered that. I haven’t been smart enough to get a screen capture or anything to try to sort it out.


#6

That’s an anomaly that can occur if the aircraft was blocked within a day or so and the database hasn’t propagated throughout our infrastructure.


#7

Don’t know if anyone has asked this before, but would it be possible to have an option to show blocked flights on the arrivals (at least) tab ? Similar to the commercial/general aviation on-off toggle.

If there’s a blocked BBJ (say) on the way to my local, I’d like to pop out and see/photo it. All I need is the aircraft type and ETA, although the track map would be nice too.

No biggy.

We’re not permitted to disclose the aircraft type of blocked aircraft.

OK.

Rats.
