I read this sentence in a British aviation magazine: Once clearance was received from air traffic control, the two Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 turbofans roared into life and we accelerated down the runway, becoming airborne at 2226hrs.

I have no idea how to pronounce 2226hrs. Certainly not two thousand two hundred and twenty-six hours? 😜 Please enlighten me.

PS The logic of this site insists on a capital H in the heading. I cannot change it.

I would say twenty-two twenty-six hours. or just twenty-two twenty-six.

But perhaps someone with a more technical background will comment further.

I don't have that but, I agree with you. That way of telling the time is familiar because I've heard others use it in technical contexts. It's not in general use, just some professional situations.
