Missing track


#1

N700KQ filed I68 to I68 today. The departure and arrival times were shown but there was no track shown. Why?


#2

We often don’t receive any radar position updates for local, low altitude flights.

Ok but in the past I have seen tracks on similar flights. They were sometimes a little squirrely but showed part of the actual flight. Have never seen one completely missing.

It seems odd that you can get the departure/arrival times from the ATC computers but not the track.

That might explain the other problem I have seen. Where a track will end long before the destination when the pilot(sometimes me) didn’t cancel IFR that far out. At other times I have seen the track go all the way through an intstrument approach right down to MDA.

Anyhow, even with these problems I like your service, thanks.
