setting the local time in FMC pmdg 777

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am having a problem or probably a missunderstanding of how to use the clock. I usually set in FSX the day and the time, e.g. 18:00. Then the time shown in the fmc and the clock (in my case pmdg 777) is the GMT time, in this case 23:00. How can I set this time to the local one?

 

Thanks!

Make Greenwich International your departure airport!!!   :P

Hahaha, that cannot help entirely as they would use BST during summer  :lol:

 

Seriously, aviation works in UTC (it's not synonym for GMT, two different things), why would you try to set local time?

ALL times in aviation are GMT on aircraft, as well as most operations measuring Zulu time, or GMT, or UTC (three things being the same thing)

Don't have the T7 yet, but if it is anything like the clock in the NGX, you can toggle between UTC and local time with one of the buttons on the clock.
