We at FCA (First choice Airways) use Zulu Time, which is one hour behind normal time (GMT) and i would say all Charter Airlines use it. We bring Zulu time in at the beginning of April until the end of Summer and then go back to Normal time(GMT) for the Winter Season.
Hey guys – for some of you it would be well worth your time to listen to those who’ve spent more time in an airplane cockpit than many here have spent. Period. Ranger is one of those guys.
I’m not sure how long Learguy has been aviating, but obviously he’s been doing it long enough for you to pay attention to the fact that he’s providing an answer to the question asked.
Its relatively easy to get confused about “time zones” but don’t “redefine” the terms to suit your incorrect understanding of them.
As Ranger points out, zulu time= greenwich mean time= universal coordinated time. And that means that it would be very hard to have Z Time be one hour behind GMT at any time, because they’re both the same time, all the time.
