live flight log - Skip times


#1

Why does some flight logs – skip minutes?

Example:

Time Position Ground
speed Altitude
Eastern TZ Latitude Longitude kts Feet
02:16AM 35.82 -83.98 107 1200
02:20AM 35.97 -84.07 163 4000
02:23AM 36.05 -84.13 167 6000
02:23AM 36.08 -84.17 169 5700
02:24AM 36.08 -84.17 167 6000
02:24AM 36.12 -84.20 169 6000
02:25AM 36.17 -84.22 183 6000

Areas of poor radar coverage.

Or some radar sites were down at that time of day.

Thank you both for replying! :wink:

Could it be because it was below radar coverage as it happened during the climb and descent in the example provided?

Seems like during cruise there were no gaps?

Or going to or from an approach controller during the climbs and descent?
