Leon is available as the application for crew members. Leon mobile application for iPhone, iPad and Android can be downloaded for free. In the App store type in 'Leon Software' in the search box and install the application.
In order to upgrade to the new version, please go to App store (iTunes for iOS and Play for Android) and in your existing applications section, you should be able to see an option for an upgrade.
Once you have downloaded the application, click on Leon icon in order to bring up the login page. Insert the same logging in details you use for the web Leon version.
The main screen of the application will display a screen with 5 main panels of the app:
In the top-left corner, you also have access to the Dashboard which gives options to Reset or to Log out.
This section is designed to view flights, positionings and duties of the person logged in.
Flights and positionings that are not assigned or assigned to a different crew or scheduled Maintenance will not show in this view.
Next to the calendar date, accumulated Block time for this month is presented.
If you click on a particular flight in this panel, Leon shows a clock-icon - click it to view Roster history made on that day. You can also click the same icon on the menu bar and Leon will show roster changes (as on screenshot below).
In the filter, it is possible to switch between IATA/ICAO codes and UTC/BT times. All other functions, with little exceptions, are the same as in the 'Calendar' section.
With this feature, a crew member is able to register the time of start and end of the duty, to which he/she is assigned.
The data registered are:
To record the duty start/end time and location, in Leon mobile app:
The details recorded using this feature are available in Report Wizard, “Crew Roster” scope. The columns available are:
It is also possible to set up fixed Clock-in/clock-out locations. More information in the General Settings section of Leon.
'Weekly Rest' for this purpose is considered as 36h free of duties including two local nights in 168h period. Click the filter to enable showing weekly rest in the roster calendar.
'Weekly Rest' in 'My Schedule' view indicates where the weekly rest actually takes place.
Caution: The weekly rest has a slightly different role in Crew mobile application than in CREW TIMELINE. In Crew Timeline it appears at the latest time when it should be applied, while on the Crew mobile application it applies always when conditions are met. That's why indicated weekly rest may not match in both applications.
'Weekly rest' is marked with the light-blue colour and is applied only after a flight, positioning, Simulator or any other duty included by definition in the FTL calculations.
The presentation is as follow:
Clicking on the tile will show the details of the duty as well as the information that the 'Weekly rest' applied.
The indication of weekly rest applies only to the logged-in User.
A functionality: My aircraft schedule allows to include flights of the aircraft to which a crew member has been added as 'Preferred crew', despite the fact that he/she is not assigned to those flights.
In a panel FLEET, tab CREW, it is possible to add 'Preferred crew' to the aircraft.
A screenshot below shows an example of a crew Bartoli Aaron (BAR) added as 'Preferred crew' to the aircraft 'B-ARTI'.
Crew BAR has been assigned to 2 flights on the aircraft 'A-BCDE' (to which he is not added as 'Preferred crew'), and there are 4 flights on the aircraft 'B-ARTI' (to which he is added as 'Preferred crew') where he is not assinged as a pilot.
When crew BAR is logged in to Leon Crew App, in a panel 'My Schedule', he can see 2 flights he is assigned to, on the tail 'A-BCDE' (an option My aircraft schedule is switched off).
If in the Filter an option My aircraft schedule is switched on, crew BAR will also see all flights of the tail 'B-ARTI'.
Below the duties calendar Leon shows flights divided into 2 sections: MY SCHEDULE and MY AIRCRAFT SCHEDULE.
Schedule section of the mobile app shows a calendar view on crew flights, positionings, office duties as well as all duties added in the Duty Roster. Users can check Flights details, PAX details, Checklist items status & notes, FTL Calculations and add Journey Log data.
On top of the screen there are available options:
Filter window is divided into 2 sections:
In order to see Non-Aircraft duties you need to unmark Flights in the filter. Once this is done you will only see duties such as Maintenance, Reservation, Positioning and Office considering they are still ticked in the filter.
If the “Flights” are ticked in the filter, flying activities will override Non-Aircraft duties in the calendar screen. In this case if you want to see Maintenance details you have to click on the specific day and it will be displayed below the calendar. You can find more information on viewing and displaying duties further down in this section.
Options when marked will show all flights with the status 'Option', which on the mobile calendar are displayed with stripes. Only my activities will allow you to filter by the flights and duties you are assigned to.
Select a period of time and by clicking on the particular tile you can view your duty. The current day is marked by a blue line at the bottom of the tile. The selected day will stand out by a blue belt at the bottom edge of the tile.
The meaning of markings on each calendar day are as follows:
1 - day of the month.
2 - duty symbol - it's displayed in exactly the same way as in the 'Crew Duty' roster in Leon.
3 - the colour of the tile reflects the kind of fleet activity on the day:
Although all activities of the day will be displayed in the tiles, the flights, maintenances and reservations will take priority in display. The colours correspond to the view in the calendar of the browser application. Full colour coding of the application is available in our main manual: CALENDAR.
The maintenances and reservations contain the following information:
If you see a “Refresh” symbol on Maintenance Duty this means that there are other duties apart from Maintenance that might be hidden. Refreshing it brings up these duties. Such a situation usually happens when Maintenance falls on the borderline days of duties display.
4 - main activity symbol - appears if the logged-in user is scheduled as a crew member for any flight on that day, according to the filter settings. The same applies to positioning (bus icon) or office work (computer icon). Only one icon is displayed. If there are multiple activities, the most important one is displayed in the followingg order: flight, positioning, office work.
Below the calendar there will be displayed duty details, such as:

This section displays the full FDP period (all sectors and duties falling into one FDP period) along with reporting times and rest before and after flights/duties.
The colour of the dot next to the FTL CALCULATIONS represents the legality to fly. Red dot indicates a violation of any of the regulations listed below the FDP activity. The regulations display limits according to OM7 and the actual times performed by the crew member. To see which regulation is violated simply scroll down the screen. The green ticks next to the regulations indicate that given regulation is not violated. Red cross will be displayed next to the violated regulations.

It is important for the crew - once they have finished their duty - to inform crew assigned to the next leg, on the same aircraft, about remaining fuel on board and other details. For this purpose, we have added 2 new fields to the Journey Log panel (to be enabled in Settings > Flight Editing section).
Leon will show the value of JL Fuel remaining from the previous flight in a section Flight of the mobile app, as Fuel on board before uplift - see example below.
On the flight WAW-GVA, in the Log panel, fuel details have been inserted, where 'Fuel remaining' shows as 2155 KG.
When crew assigned on the next leg GVA-WAW click on the flight in the mobile app and view details in a section 'Flight' - Leon will show the value of 2155 KG as 'Fuel on board before uplift'.
The same value will also show in the 'Log' section of the app as 'Fuel before uplift'.
Once this item has been added to the default JL items, crew will be able to leave some important information to the crew assigned on the next flight - see example below.
