This tab consists of 3 subsections:

General settings

  • Operator ICAO - an ICAO code by which an operator is recognizable by Eurocontrol (so that flight times can be imported from Eurocontrol straight to Leon's 'Flight Watch' - if the integration with Eurocontrol is switched on, in Add-ons panel). This code is also used in Handling Requests.
  • Operator IATA - an operator IATA code, used in 'Show Schedule' panel (in a section OPS) and Handling Requests.
  • Region - select between EN & US to define the date-format. Also, when US region is selected Leon changes the date format displayed in the OPS section. Also, Flight Watch times indications: BLOFF > OUT, T/O > OFF, LDG > ON, BLON > IN. In the same way, Flight Watch columns will change in Report Wizard.
  • Default weight unit - select kg or lbs, which will be a default, unless an aircraft has it defined differently in its profile (in Settings > Fleet panel), then Leon takes the aircraft fuel & weight units as default (displayed in the Journey Log).
  • Default airport category - here you can set a default airport category for all airports available in Airport Directory panel.
  • Default local currency - you can define them by selecting the currency from the drop-down box.
  • Options and Opportunities will change position of aircraft on Calendar page - when this box is ticked, a flight-option/opportunity added in OPS > CALENDAR screen will change the position of the aircraft for future days.
  • Display the experience table - the table can be input to the user's profile, where you can add the past crew-experience before joining your company. More information here.
  • Crew Panel - option to choose between 'Auto publish' and 'Manual publish' of assigned duties in the 'Crew Panel' section
  • Crew age validation - setting that validates age of cockpit crew. There are 3 options available: 'Disable' - no age validation; 'Enable over 60 years' - checks if the CPT and FO are over 60 years of age each; 'Enable over 65 years' - checks if the CPT and FO are over 65 years of age each. If both Cockpit Crew members fail validation, Leon will issue the following warning: 'Assigned CPT (FO) is over 60 (65) years old'. Crew age validation is being checked for commercial flights only.
  • System notification recipients - in this field, you can define a list of mail addresses that will receive system notifications. System notifications include notifications about integration errors, mailbox suspensions, etc.
  • Timeline additional markers - section where you can create the 'Timeline' markers definitions. More information about the functionality can be found in the New Timeline section.

Leon inbox settings

You can send messages to Leon users by using the 'Messages' tool. Once the message has been sent out, Leon can notify them about it by marking the envelope-icon in yellow. You can also decide if the message is visible in the crew's private inbox or if they still need to log in to Leon to read the content. This is quite useful if you want your users to confirm familiarisation.


If a company has more than one main base where the staff is located then you can define in Leon more bases and assign them to particular aircraft as well as to a proper crew and other staff members. Then you can filter particular pages by a proper base and view flights or duties only for that base.

By selecting a time zone you can then select Base Time in a section OPS, right-hand filter (at the bottom).

Bases can be used in SCHED panel when adding schedules on virtual aircraft.
