zulu vs standard/daylight time

Wilbur Y 3 years ago updated 3 years ago 2

Local time here is now PDT, but when I specify time as 1600Z Flight Planner shows it as 0900 PST. The 0900 is correct local time - the "PST" is not.

Could you tell us what browser you are using? There is a long-standing bug in the FireFox browser that causes the time zone to display inaccurately. If you are using FireFox, you can confirm this is the same bug by using Chrome or IE and see if the time zone is correct in either of those two browsers when using the flight planner.

There is a fix pending release from Mozilla that should fix the issue but I don't know when we can expect them to release it.

If you are still seeing the time zone issue in a browser other than FireFox, let us know so we can look into it further.

Thank you.

Right on. I usually use Firefox. It is OK with IE.

Odd that the browser would make a difference in the way the program runs. Doesn't the program (Flight Planner) format it's own pages for display? This computer stuff is getting way to complicated. This remark from a long time (1987) retired programmer.



PS. And by the way, why ask for information in an email to which I can't reply?
