SCHED is the functionality allowing you to build and manage the schedules.
Functionality is designed with Airlines in mind. However, it still can be used by business and charter operators to build schedules.
The main SCHED view is divided into 2 sections:
Once the schedule is assigned to a specific aircraft, this flight, or a number of flights, is moved to the bottom part of the view.
There are following options available:
Next to button there is a dropdown available where you can choose between UTC and BT (Base Time) which can be set up in Settings > General Settings section.
In the top-right corner of the page, you have the filtering option where you can switch the SCHED between IATA and ICAO codes.
This option allows creating a schedule version where new schedules can be inserted either by uploading an SSIM or XLS file from a specific Client (e.g. travel agents) or by adding manually a new schedule without assigned aircraft.
In order to create a new schedule click on button.
In the 'Create New Version' pop-up window insert the name of the schedule, select the Client, and add a short description (as per the screenshot on the right).
Once the version is created, it will be available in the dropdown selection available at the top of the screen.
It is also possible to select multiple versions of the schedule to preview in the SCHED overview.
To do that you need to open the versions list and simply click on the versions you would like to view, as per the screenshot on the right-hand side. SCHED overview will refresh upon selecting each additional version.
In case of a situation where there are different versions assigned to one aircraft, each version is presented in a separate line within the aircraft block.
If the versions are not assigned to an aircraft, they will be displayed in the unassigned aircraft section as separate TBA lines.
Version selection will appear in the following windows:
It is possible to publish schedules for one version only.
If a file with the schedule was provided it could be uploaded to Leon using the button.
It is possible to import schedules from SSIM and XLS files. XLS file has to be in the same format which is exported from Leon (the same columns and correct data).
Select the schedule to which the file should be uploaded and click on the button. If multiple versions are selected in the overview then the specific version can be selected in the import pop-up window.
The 'Import' pop-up window will open where the file can be uploaded:
Once the file is uploaded the flights will appear in the top part of the screen for the selected schedule, as per the screenshot on the right.
If there are changes to the previously uploaded schedule, the new upload will replace them.
The uploaded schedule can be modified as per the options available and described further down in this part of the Manual.
To export the schedule to a file click on the button.
The schedule can be exported as SSIM or XLS file.
For SSIM It is important that in the aircraft configuration fields 'Passenger Reservation Booking Designator' and 'Configuration/Version' are filled in.
The procedure is quite simple. Click on the button and select the version of the schedule to be exported as well as the desired format of the file, and the place on your computer to which such file should be saved.
Leon will save it to the .txt (for SSIM) or XLS file format.
This option can be used if the SSIM file has not been provided and the Schedule needs to be inserted manually.
It is possible to build the schedule in 2 ways:
In order to build a new schedule you need to perform the following steps:
It is possible to switch between UTC and Base Time if Base times are set up in the General Settings section.
If the schedule is built based on 'Block hours' model, you need to indicate the number of hours that the aircraft is allowed to perform.
Once it is indicated, Leon will limit the schedule and the number of rotations up to to this limit.
As you can see in the screenshot on the right-hand side, the schedule was limited to 30 block hours. There are 6h25m of block time within each rotation, which means that there can only be 4 rotations built within 30h worth of allowed block time:
4 x 06:25 = 25:40
In the 'General Settings' panel you can define Bases (and then assign aircraft and crew to a particular Base).
On the SCHED main page, right next to the button 'Publish', you can find a drop-down box with the list of predefined Bases, as well as UTC (which shows by default).
When switching between Bases, Leon will show appropriate ADEP & ADES times on the flight-belt (see example below).
An option to select between UTC & chosen BT also appears when creating a
Once the schedule is saved, the flights are displayed as blue squares.
You can click on the flight and perform further actions, such as modifying the schedule or deleting it. You can select more than one flight by holding Shift/Ctrl buttons on the keyboard and clicking on the flights or by using option.
This function allows selecting a flight or a number of flights for further actions.
It is possible to select flights in 2 ways:
The 'SELECT FLIGHTS' option allows you to select a number of flights from the already added schedules.
The 'Select Flights' window is divided into two sections:
In the Filter section you can filter by the following:
The Schedule section displays the results of the filtering. There you can select the flights that require further action.
Once the flights are selected they're marked by the frame in the 'Sched Overview' -
Option is there to publish the selected flights of the schedule.
The publishing process is as follow:
Once the schedule has been added to the SCHED panel, you can select whether it should be published with the initially assigned aircraft (either virtual or the real one), or with the existing one.
Select flights (use Shift or Ctrl to mark multiple legs) and click the icon - Leon will show a pop-up window, where you will be able to either leave the same aircraft as it was selected when creating the schedule or select between existing aircraft for the schedule publication (no option to select a different tail).
Once the schedule has been published with an existing aircraft, you will find it in the OPS panel.
There is a following color coding to the flights in 'Sched Overview':
It is possible to modify selected flights or a number of flights or modify pairings.
In order to modify flights you need to:
'Modify flights' window is divided into 2 sections:
In the Modification options section you can change the following:
If you want to change the schedule of multiple sectors, in MODIFY FLIGHTS panel, you need to move times in fields 'Shift' or/and 'Block times'. Below you can find some examples.
Under tab Trip it is possible to make the following changes on selected trips:
In order to delete flights or schedule you need to:
It is possible to delete the planned flights as well as the published flights.
button becomes available only upon selecting published flight or a number of flights from one pairing.
Once you selected the flight(s) and clicked on the button, you will be transferred to OPS > TABLE view, and the pairing will be edited.
It also is possible to move back from the OPS view to SCHED as long as the flight selected in OPS views was added in SCHED.
Simply select the flight originally added in SCHED. button will appear. Clicking on it will transfer you to SCHED view, where the flight will be selected. This will happen for flights with either virtual or non-virtual aircraft assigned.
