Time Zone Issue With Turkey

Hello IFC. Every time I depart/arrive from Istanbul, Turkey (which is quite frequently) I notice that the local time in the simulator is set to 1 hour behind the actual time in turkey right then. I am based in Chicago, IL., so for me, Turkey should be 9 hours ahead, however, on the local time in the simulator, it always shows it as 8 hours ahead. Is this an issue just for me or within the simulator? Any help is appreciated. 😁

Click on current time. If you adjust the slider while on current time it stays enabled. It should revert back to real time.

I always keep it on current time and have not changed it. Will give this a try though.

I can confirm this issue… I will tag @schyllberg on this one. Seb is Infinite Flights Support Manager and hopefully he will take a bigger look into this

Yes, the current time in the simulator is off an hour. This is a known issue and is only something that the developers can fix.

You can always manually change the time to match the real time in Turkey.

Sydney’s time also does not update when Daylight Savings (DST) kicks in I believe.

It’s being investigated. We’re aware of a few random discrepancies in some time zones. Both ones like this as well as some were it says GMT +8 instead of GMT -8 for example… (the issue is with the API we use…)
