Why does some flights show an arrival time and some do not at the DEPARTURE airport?
See flightaware.com/live/airport/KMBO/departures N1943L is my tail number
Then see flightaware.com/live/airport/KHBG/departures
N1943L and my arrival time is there on my return trip.
The only thing unusual on my trip to HBG was that radar contact was lost when I descended to 2700 but I didn’t cancel IFR until I was about 9 miles from the airport.
Also curious, as I remember a new update saying the ETA will be more accurate, but when does the ETA stop updating?
As you can see from my flight track on the return, I cancelled IFR approximately 14 miles out, and I assume my “arrival time” is the time the IFR cancellation is received?
At my Slowdowner speeds, 14 miles is about 7 minutes additional flight which would mean my ETA should have been that much longer had I gone from wheels up to wheels down?
Unlesss FA can read my mind on an in air IFR cancellation?
