Can I get the FS local time of any airport?

Recommended Posts

Not via offsets. The best you can do is the local time at the players location.

If you use the Airports Database built into the DLL you can get the Lon/Lat of the airport.

With this you can use a NuGet package called GeoTimeZone to get the time zone at that location.


You can then use another NuGet package called TimeZoneConverter to convert this to the normal .NET TimeZoneInfo class.


You can then use that to work out the local time from the UTC Simulator time from the DLL: (FSUIPCConnection.UTCDateTime).

Something like this:

string timeZoneIANA = TimeZoneLookup.GetTimeZone(apLat, apLon).Result;
TimeZoneInfo tzInfo = TZConvert.GetTimeZoneInfo(timeZoneIANA);
DateTime airportLocalTime = TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTimeFromUtc(FSUIPCConnection.UTCDateTime, tzInfo);
