Neal,

I just want to be certain I understand the upcoming time change with regards to APDL. In both your announcement posted on this forum and the October Newsletter that I received today, you say,

'If you are importing trips after October 29th, wait until you have unchecked "Daylight Savings is in effect".'

I have already imported my November bid schedule which is FLiCA and based on local times. I just experimented with unchecking the "Daylight Savings is in effect" box with my schedule in already in APDL. When I change the time view from "local" to "zulu" the new time conversion seems correct.

So...in this situation will I really need to remove my November schedule and re-import after 10/29 and that box is unchecked?

Thanks...again!

Eric

Eric,

Please re-import all your flying for November, after you un-check "Daylight Savings is in effect".

This is necessary, so when times are converted form "Zulu", "Local", or "Domicile" back to your "Logbook" time zone the values are correct.

Fly Safe!
