NA Flight status
« on: June 16, 2010, 06:11:37 PM »
I sort my flights by distance. I always have a batch of flights at the top with a flight status of NA. Why do these not timeout and disappear?

I understand that this has been discussed before but a search that includes NA and flight status does not really work :)

Are these network flights or local hardware flights?

Network flights. The local flights time out and disappear as expected.

Okay.   Discussed during beta testing at http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=3058.0

Previous replies for those without access to the beta forum:

NA means not available, flights which status is unknown. You will see lots of these flights on ground.

We will explain what happens: with the new network flight routines to avoid flights being concentrated at runway ends time-outed we had to introduce several time-out routines. These cause that some NW flights change to a different status. There is nothing we can do about the... unless change the flight status routine so it returns a different Status, not NA but...?

Maybe rename NA to TimedOut?  And ensure that these time-out aircraft still display their last known altitude in the aircraft list.

Corrected. NA flights will not be shown on the Network grid.

Thanks tarbat
I don't have access to those topics but I assume it is normal to have the NA's

It's normal to have NA's.  Maybe Airnav can explain what NA really means, they're a real nuisance when you sort by Distance as well.
