VFR flight following


#1

I notice a number of flights where “n/a” is listed in the Route field.

For example:

flightaware.com/live/flight/N223 … /KLGB/KCMA

Does this indicate that this flight was probably VFR w/ flight following and then the pilot terminated flight following east of KCMA?

Any other reasons for the “n/a” indication.

Thanks for info.

Bob

No, because we wouldn’t have any of that information for a VFR/FF flight.
With VNY and CMA so close and in Socal, the pilot probably flew TEC.

TEC= Tower Enroute Control

Will an NGF flight be tracked if it’s flown VFR and does a flight plan need to be filed in order to be tracked?


#5

An NGF flight needs to be flying on an IFR flight plan to be tracked. VFR, even with flight following and a flight plan, will not be tracked.
