AITM Time Question

Recommended Posts

If I use the timetable in AITM2 and see that a plane arrives/departs at a certain time what time do I set in FS2004? The timetable says 10:55:43 and that the GMT is +4. What exact time should I set? Thanks, regards, Bob.

The simplest way to be sure is to set AITM for GMT, and then set FS to the same GMT time using the World/Time & Season menu.While you are in FS, check out the difference between local and GMT time at your airport, and use that time difference in AITM to get your timetable in local time.Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Hi Tom. Thanks for the explanation. How does one account for daylight savings and standard time differences? I tried what you suggested and I still don't see the traffic that is supposed to be taking off and landing per the timetable. I tried one hour earlier and one hour later and still no traffic. Best reagrds and thanks, Bob.

Hi,Both FS and AITM actually work in GMT, so if you set both of those properly and your planes don't show up, then something else must be wrong. You *are* compiling the flight plans and not just *saving* them in AITM, right?Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Hi Tom. Thanks for the reply. Yes I compiled them with UT and decompiled them with AITM to get the timetable. AITM shows no errors in the plan, aircraft or airports. Very strange. The other plans that I added work OK. Thanks and best regards, Bob.

I had the same problem. Then I discovered that using fixed arrival times with TTools was the problem. If you delete all @ before the arrivals TTools will calculate them and write back into your flight plan. These times are reliable.
