A plane departs the central time done at 8:45 PM, for a two hour flight to a mountain timezone.

What is the landing in universal time?

A thank you from my old man. He is taking one of his past ground-school tests in a few days, and this question resulted in a little confusion from the conversions of time.

Cheers!

By the way...

Zulu conversion for central time is +6 hours, +5 if daylight savings time.

I still think DST is stupid....

Tell your old man "good luck" and come back if there are anymore questions.

For some reason I still can't do the math in my head, so I just look at the FMS. I get more lazy every day at work.

How about another one?

Q: What's the difference between a pilot & a turbine engine?

A: The engine stops whining when it gets to the gate.
