GMT time not correct here in Brazil

Recommended Posts

i have my PC fixed to Brasilia time (GMT - 3) which you can see in the attached clock settings, however PFPX is showing only a difference of only 2 hours (see other attachment where gmt for departure was set at 1400 in PFPX, which shows local time as 1200 (local time should be 1100)

 

I am on the latest version of PFPX, I have had this issue for over a year and on previous versions, I noted that at some parts of the year it works, so probably something to do with an error when Europe is on winter time

Hi Stephen, here it is, I put in zulu time for SBGL of 1900 which is showing local time of 1700, a difference of minus 2 houras, whereas should be minus 3

A snapshot of the Airport Data Charles rather than a flight entry, accessed via the Company Data icon or context menu via right click the airport on the map:

Is your system clock displaying the correct offset to GMT ?

 

As Brazil has suspended daylight saving time which would ordinarily be place at this time perhaps the issue is related.

 

I have set both a WIN7 and WIN10 system clocks to that of Brazil and see the correct offset in use within PFPX.

Thanks Stephen,

I will send the Airport data snapshot next time I am in the sim

System clock - yes, it is on Brasilia time (GMT -3) with internet clock checked and on win 7

Suspended daylight saving - maybe, because this issue seems to crop up only part of the year

Hi Stephen, here is a print of SBGL under Airport Data, which is showing GMT-2 whereas should be GMT-3.  Is there a way to change this for all airports in this timezone or do I have to do that one-by-one?  Attached are also my clock settings in W7.  Thanks again
