I've made up schedules for my ai aircraft, and in doing so, I notice that when I start FSX, I choose say 08:00hrs as the start time, in the cockpit the time says the same time, but if you open the sdk explorer for ai, the time is an hour earlier, and it shows all the schedule times as different from what I had input in T360. How on earth do I get the schedule to run properly..... and when starting FSX do I select "my" time or an hour earlier to match the sdk explorer time???


I thank you in advance


Steve

When you create schedules in T360 or TX, you are using times that are LOCAL to the airports in question. These LOCAL times are based upon UTC variations set by T360 / TX which in some cases do NOT agree with the variations used by FSX - they are often an hour different depending upon where in the world you are working.

The Traffic Explorer window (created by installing the SDK) has all times that are UTC, NOT LOCAL, so you have to allow for the UTC variation. So, from my first paragraph, you can see that you will often find an hour variation from what you expected.

This is something you will have to live with, I'm afraid. Once you know the situation, you can, if necessary, edit your schedules to allow for the difference.

Yeah, it can be a real pain in the a---.  But you do get used to it over time, with experience, as you do more and more flight plans and schedules.
