This report generates information about all duties: flights, repositionings, office or standby duties, as well as days off assigned in the section Crew > Duties.
The report is divided into 2 parts:
In the filter you can switch to the Alternative cumulative figures calculations - if this checkbox is ticked, Cumulative duty and Block times are calculated back from the end of the day with no duty, rather than from the end of a previous day.
For example, if the crew is off duty on 10-08-2019, according to the alternative option the period included in the calculation would fall between the end of day on 10-08-2019 and the beginning of 04-08-2019. The standard calculation is more restrictive and calculates the period between 09-08-2019 and 03-08-2019. This checkbox only affects days with no duties assigned. Days, where the duty is assigned are still calculated from the end of the duty time.
It is possible to view block hours per sector. Mark Show block times checkbox in the filter and the column will appear in the report. The data will be displayed in the following format: hh:mm - hh:mm.
Another options which can be turned on in the filter are Highlight reduced rest and Highlight FDP extension - Leon will display such cases in orange.
Values such as 'Rest before duty - Min' or 'FDP - Max' are explained when you hover the mouse over the value (see below).
The same can be done to check cumulative 'Duty time' or 'Block time'.
Hover the mouse over Duty time column value to find out what part of the duty time has been included into Cumulative Duty calculation (i.e. some Standby duty types have 50% or 25% of STB duty lenght included).
Leon can also show cumulative duty or block time values warnings in yellow as a certain number of hours before the limit (see screenshot on the right). It can be 3, 5 or 10 hours - it is up to you. If you want this option to be enabled, please email Leon Support team: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set it up for you.
It is possible to generate FTL Sheet for selected crew members.
The process is as follow:
If maximum allowed FDP is exceeded, in some situations there is a possibility of using Commanders Discretion. To indicate it in Leon you simply mark 'Discretion' checkbox in JL.
We have implemented following changes to Commanders Discretion:
Most FTL regulations contain a requirement for scheduling an extended recovery recurrent rest period once every few days, usually called a weekly rest. For example:
“(…) minimum 36 continuous hours, including two consecutive recovery nights, in a seven-day period.”
or, more precisely:
(…) weekly rest period, being a 36-hour period including two local nights, such that there shall never be more than 168 hours between the end of one weekly rest period and the start of the next.
It is reflected in Leon’s FTL Settings by weekly_rest_min_length (in this case, 36 hours) and weekly_rest_max_separation (in this case, 168 hours). Other settings can be used to specify whether the weekly rest should include local nights, or whether it can be reduced, or performed outside the crew member’s home base.
However, this is rarely that simple. Some regulations allow for an alternative rest instead of the regular one, for example:
(…) rest periods will be extended at least:
which often leads to some confusion, especially in the case of alternating 36/60 “weekly” rest patterns.
So far this has been implemented in Leon in a way that FTL would require the basic (36-hour) rest to happen within the first 7 days following the previous weekly rest. If such rest is not scheduled in that period, FTL starts to require the alternative (longer) extended rest period. It can be illustrated with the following example:
Recently, we encountered a different phrasing of the weekly rest regulations, suggesting that the opposite interpretation may actually be more appropriate:
Before beginning an FDP or standby, an FCM must have had at least 1 of the following:
From the previous example, one can infer that the FDPs on 14-DEC and 15-DEC are actually not permitted, since there is neither a 36-hour rest in the previous 7 days (08-DEC–14-DEC) nor a 72-hours in the previous 10 days (05-DEC–14-DEC). The correct illustration would be as follows:
This new “forward” mode of calculating weekly rest can be enabled by setting weekly_rest_alternative_forward. This will only affect the regulations with an additional “alternative” definition of a weekly rest. Please contact customer support for more information.
