What are some of the possibilities that could cause FlightAware to show that a flight, with a proposed departure of 11:40pm and arrival of 1:05am, has not taken off? I was assigned to wait for a late arrival at the FBO where I work, and I decided to leave after the aircraft did not show untill 1:30am. The aircraft eventually arrived at approximately 2:00am but flight aware never showed the aircraft took-off/picked up their clearance and as a result of me not being there I was let go. I need to know if this is a common issue because I am fighting to get my job back. Please help.
Also I noticed on a flight I did from one destination to another, I picked up a local IFR clearance in the air. When I landed and looked at FlightAware I noticed that it indicated that I never picked up the clearance and never took off. I think there are some glitches with FlightAware if you are not off the ground before proposed time or if you pick up a clearance while in the air.
If anyone has experienced anything similar please share your story. Anything will help, as I really want my job back.
Thank you to everyone ahead of time.
