Is there a way to set time according to the region I'm flyin

I'm on a very long flight and It shows the time of my current real-life location, not the time for where I'm flying over which is an hour ahead.

It also shows UTC

Also, now that I'm in the dark, is there a way to light up the flight deck full and bright? I see in a video on Apknite that the cabin gets light up with Ctrl+L, I mean something like that but for the cockpit.

The "current time" setting should synchronize the in-sim UTC time with real-world UTC, so timezones should be correct. At least that's how it works on Linux; I'm not sure how the time logic actually works on an OS that sets the system clock to local time (Linux generally keeps the system clock in UTC, and does timezone conversion on the fly).
