Hi Everyone

 

New pliot hrer and I am having great fun and enjoying the whole experience. Lot of learning to do but one thing I am unclear about is time. Can I set a local time for flying and is that OK with VATSIM ATC (ie if im flying in the evening realtime but what to set X-plane to say 10.30am for VFR is that a problem?)

 

Also if I file a flight plan (I use Xsquawkbox) does that time need to be real UTC or my local departure time??

 

Cheers

All aviation reports are usually UTC. Should there be a deviation for any reason, it should be specified.

ATC usually ignores your simulated time of day. In certain airports, you may have to fly a night-time procedure such as noise abatement into or out of airports, e.g. Tokyo Haneda.

In the UK (the home of GMT) we have no problem with you setting daylight time when it's really dark out there. Otherwise we'd never get any VFR traffic in those long winter evenings! It's helpful if you put a comment in your remarks like "daylight settings".
