FlightXML Time Data


I searched the forums for an answer to the following question and didn’t find any threads that directly answered my question.

Are the times reported by the FlightXML APIs all in UTC/GMT, or are they reported local to the aircraft’s location (e.g. for tracking APIs) or all relative to its departing airport?

I understand they are all encoded to UNIX epoch time.

Thank you!
