AeroCRS

AeroCRS integration

AeroCRS is a cloud-based system for managing and operating a small/medium airline scheduled or charter based operation. For more information please visit Official Website.

How to integrate

If you already are an AeroCRS client, you simply need to contact support@aerocrs.com to receive details for integration with Leon.

In this section, you can set up the integration with AeroCRS by switching it to Active. Once activated, insert integration details and press SAVE. This completes the process and you can start importing flights from OPS page in Leon.

How to import flights

Import Flights from AeroCRS

Once it is active, you can start importing flights from AeroCRS.

Go to OPS section where you will see the actions button located in the bottom bar of OPS section which provides you with access to AeroCRS import trigger.

When you click on 'AeroCRS' link Leon will open the Import Window where you can choose the timeframe. Timeframe is limited to 7 days.

After clicking on 'IMPORT' button Leon will display flights divided into 3 sections:

  • New - flights just imported for the first time
  • Updated - any updates made to previously downloaded flight. These could be changes made both in Aero CRS and Leon. If the schedule changes are made in Leon, AeroCRS will overwrite it upon next import.
  • Skipped - flights ignored during import due to a number of reasons such as: missing IATA code or number, unrecognized airport, etc.

Once the Import window is closed, OPS section in Leon will update with the imported flights.

AeroCRS is IATA based software, please make sure your Fleet have IATA codes inserted. If an aircraft registered in AeroCRS is missing in Leon, the flights will not be imported.

Airport Charges

API PORTAL section in MyRDC

How to integrate

In order to integrate you have to have an active account with RDC Aviation.

The integration process is as follow:

  1. Log in to your MyRDC account
  2. In 'MyRDC' go to API PORTAL > Authorisation token section, click on GENERATE NEW TOKEN button and then COPY this token
  3. Go to 'Add-ons' > 'Airport Charges' integration section
  4. In the 'Configuration' tab switch the status to 'ON', paste the 'API Token' from 'MyRDC' and 'SAVE' changes

If you don't have the account with RDC Aviation, you can inquire via this link

How it works

Once the integration is active you will see additional 'Airport Charges' tab when you edit the trip in the Requests/Quotes section. This tab will include the airport charges for the airports on the selected routes. More information about the tab can be found here.


Avinode

Avinode configuration panel

Avinode is the world’s largest online Marketplace for buying and selling private air charter.

The integration allows downloading quotes from Avinode into the section Requests/Quotes, exporting aircraft availability and empty legs to Avinode, including options and opportunities.

How to integrate

Before enabling this option you need to contact techsupport@avinode.com and request a special 'Authorization key' (it is a different key to the one you use to log in to Avinode software).

Once you have received it, click a button ENABLE and in a section 'Configuration' click ON, insert the Authorization key provided by Avinode and mark which aircraft schedule should be sent to Avinode.

You can also define additional settings, such as:

  • Download requests for quotes - enable automatic downloads of the quote requests into Requests/Quotes section.
  • Use Leon aircraft performance - suggested flight times will be based on fleet performance data inserted in Leon (section Settings > Fleet). If switched off, Leon will download the flight time from Avinode
  • Add subcharter quotes automatically - Accepted Avinode requests will be added automatically as subcharter quotes to matching requests in Leon
  • Send options – Non-confirmed flights (Options) will also be exported to Avinode.
  • Send opportunities - flights with the status 'Opportunity' (defined in OPS, tab TRIP) will be sent to Avinode.
  • Automatically reject unanswered quotes - accepting Avinode requests in Leon will automatically reject unanswered quotes in Avinode
  • Send only continuous availability from aircraft home base – sends aircraft availability only when the aircraft is located/repositioned to Home Base.
  • Reposition aircraft to homebase after [h] - figure in this field indicates how many hours Aircraft will be visible at Home Base in Avinode.
  • Export Automatically - automatic export of the schedule to Avinode.
  • 'EXPORT NOW' button - this allows exporting schedule to Avinode at any given time.

How it works

Export

First step the export aircraft availability is integrating Leon with Avinode. This process is explained here.

If you want to receive messages after each export of flights to Avinode, type your code or first letters of your name in the field Recipients.

Once all has been set up tick aircraft of which flights you want to be exported.

Apart from automatic export to Avinode, in this section you can also send flights manually by clicking on 'Export now' button.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Avinode will get schedule from Leon if the below conditions are met:

Mapping activity types in Avinode
  1. The aircraft needs to be active in Avinode Marketplace with the status: Fully Active.
  2. An API connection needs to be set up in the Avinode Marketplace for the company marketing the aircraft in the Avinode Marketplace. This company is usually the operator, but it can also be a different company (i.e. not the operator holding the AOC for the aircraft) marketing the aircraft. API Connections can only be set up by Avinode staff and is usually done by product specialists (support@avinode.com) upon request from the company marketing the aircraft.
  3. The aircraft must be configured in the Avinode Marketplace to receive automatic schedule updates (i.e. Aircraft Schedule Update Type = Integrated). This can only be configured by Avinode staff and is usually done by our product specialists (support@avinode.com).
  4. The company marketing the aircraft should have Activity Type Mappings configured in their Avinode Marketplace account. These mappings are configured on a company level and are important for Avinode to be able to interpret the different type of schedule activities sent by the uploading software. Users at the company can also view, create and edit these mappings (if the user has been set up with the permission to do this). The page for this is available by navigating to Schedule - Activity types in the main menu in the online Avinode Marketplace interface. If no Activity Type Mappings are configured, the upload call will still succeed (without warnings). A mapping will be automatically created for each activity type in the uploaded data. Each type mapping created this way will have Display color = Black, and the aircraft will by default be considered as Occupied during these activities. An activity displaying with the color black should be an indication to the user that they need to configure the Activity Type Mappings.

Import

Here you can set up an automatic Avinode quotations download by ticking the Download quotation automatically checkbox. Once ticked, Leon will download quotations every 15 minutes.


CAMP

CAMP Integration

CAMP Maintenance is the industry’s leading Aircraft Maintenance and Regulatory Compliance Management solution.

How to integrate

In order to activate the integration, you need to contact support@campsystems.com and request User Name and Password for integration with Leon. The integration login details are not the same ones you use to log in to CAMP. Once you have this information you can switch the Status to 'ON' and insert it in the CAMP integration section (Login and Password). The integration will activate upon saving it.

You can always change the password received from CAMP by clicking on 'CONFIGURE' and then 'CHANGE' button.

How it works

The integration offers automatic TAH, TAC update for all engines and APU.

Leon exports aircraft TAH & TAC (Total Aircraft Hours & Cycles) as well as APU hours (if updated in Journey Log in Leon). CAMP integration works one way only from Leon to CAMP.

To make the integration work properly you need to insert the Aircraft serial number in Settings > Fleet.

Then, set up the airframe & engines details in a section MX > Fleet. Click on a selected aircraft and enter a tab CAM. Here, select Airframe 'start date' and insert TAH & TAC values. You can do the same for engines. You can also add separate data for 'APU' (Aircraft Power Unit), but it does not get automatically increased from the Journey Log entries (like engines) - this is a cumulative value, not hours per single flight.


Centrik

Switching the Centrik integration on in Leon

Centrik is an operational management system that provides you with the tools you need to manage your business in any regulatory climate. Centrik is easy-to-use interface makes filing reports or checking your operational status with modules to manage Risk, Safety, Compliance, Manuals, Documents, Meetings, Training and much more.

How to integrate

There are 2 sections in the “Configuration” Section:

  • CENTRIK SHARED LOGIN - when switched to on, activates “CENTRIK” section in the top Menu of Leon
  • CENTRIK ENDORSEMENTS SYNCHRONIZATION - activates the integration and triggers the endorsements import process

To activate this integration all you have to do is to click the button ON in the CENTRIK ENDORSEMENTS SYNCHRONIZATION section, insert your Centrik details (domain, login and password) and save.

RESET INTEGRATION DATA button is available only to the administrators and allows reloading all Centrik endorsements data with one click. The process of reseting the endorsements might take few minutes depending on the number of records

Optionally, you can also insert the “Category ID” information (“Training System ID”), if you need to limit endorsements loaded from Centrik to a particular category. In order to receive the string reflecting “Category ID” you need to contact Centrik support and they will provide you with one.

CENTRIK SHARED LOGIN section, when switched to ON, will display CENTRIK on the menu-bar. Every time you click it will transfer you to the embedded Centrik login page. Use your Centrik credentials to log in. You only have to do it once as Leon will keep you logged in.

How it works

By clicking CENTRIK on the menu-bar Leon will transfer you straight to their software embedded in Leon. The integration allows importing Crew Endorsement from Centrik to Leon.

Once the integration is completed, Leon will download the endorsements definitions and the endorsements for particular Crew from Centrik. Leon will not replace existing Leon endorsements with the downloaded ones but will create additional records in the endorsements list. It is the Client's choice to remove the non-relevant ones.

The Crew endorsements are matched by User email address. If the email addresses between Centrik and Leon a different for a particular User, Leon will not be able to match and download the endorsements for the User.

Changes to endorsement in Centrik will update endorsement details in Leon. The new endorsement in Centrik - if there is a new endorsement added in Centrik, Leon will update the record with the new one.

In a section Crew > Endorsements those imported from Centrik appear with Centrik Logo.

Endorsements are requested from Centrik once a day at 06:00 UTC.

Endorsements imported from Centrik are not editable.

Leon also downloads crew endorsements for airports. To set this up, an operator needs to go into 'Centrik Qualification Set Up' and within each Qualification enter the ICAO or IATA code into the External ID field
Leon will update data downloaded from Centrik every 3 hours. Turning the Centrik integration off removes all imported endorsements from Centrik in Leon endorsements page.

In addition, planners can get a better insight into the status of any flight and an overall view of the day’s operations, while pilots can easily see flights assigned to them both on the web and on their mobile devices.

How to integrate

In order to integrate you have to have an active account with ForeFlight

In ForeFlight, you need to generate an API key that allows integrators to access the customers' account.

The format of the API key is a string, e.g.

FS1+nO1EJH3sx2OQEAU1QxT10Wk8RU9tb7W+j7H4/oY=

ForeFlight API Keys section

To generate API key you need to:

  1. Log in to your ForeFlight account
  2. Go to 'Dispatch' section within your ForeFlight account
  3. Click the “Generate API key” button in the top right-hand corner to generate a new API key
IMPORTANT!!! After generating a key make sure to save it. Keys are not shown again and cannot be retrieved once generated.

All the instructions on how to generate the API key in ForeFlight are explained here

The next step is to go to Add-ons section in Leon. In the 'Configuration' tab of ForeFlight integration you need to:

  1. Switch the status to 'ON'
  2. Insert the 'Integration API key' generated in ForeFlight
  3. Tick the 'Auto-send' checkbox if you wish Leon to send the flights automatically
  4. Save the settings

If the 'Auto-send' is not selected flights are sent to ForeFlight upon saving them in Leon.

How it works

Leon sends the flights to ForeFlight software where they can be processed further.

The flights are being sent every 5 minutes. Leon sends the schedule one month in advance.

The following details are forwarded to ForeFlight: Flight no., ACFT Reg., STD, STA, ADEP, ADES, Number of PAX, PAX category (Male, Female, Child, Infant), flight type (Default, Positioning, PAX), Status of the Flight (Planned, Canceled), flight Crew.

Crew are recognised in ForeFlight initially by the crew code and then by the email address (work email address in Leon). We send the following positions to ForeFlight: PIC, SIC, CA (FA1 in Leon), and the remaining Crew in Leon are sent as 'Other' in ForeFlight.

The aircraft is matched by the aircraft registration. The hyphens in the registration are removed.

Flights deleted in Leon will update the status in ForeFlight to deleted.

This is one-way integration. Leon does not download the flights from ForeFlight

MARS

MARS (My Aircraft Reporting System) supports aircraft owners by providing them with modern tools for monitoring, cost management and reporting. Aircraft owners using MARS get a microsite for their particular aircraft, and also the ability to load and store all documents and invoices. Moreover, MARS is the only aviation software on the market, which supply aircraft owners one hub where they can access their financial records and flight activity.

Integration between MARS and Leon Software is very straightforward. The information is linked via an API from any flight activity software like Leon and any financial software for example: Quick Books).

The benefits that exist from any client using MARS and Leon are numerous. Not only are they able to get excellent data from Leon, but MARS brings together the pertinent data from Leon, and automatically creates reports that can be viewed, to give the owners an update on anything they could need to see regarding their aircraft. From where their aircraft has been, hours flown in a particular month, whether the usage was Owner or Charter, and full financial data as well.

They are also able to check the MARS calendar and find the availability of their aircraft at the touch of their fingertips, and as a brand new feature, clients can now reserve their aircraft right on the calendar, sending an email directly to their management company, letting them know when and where their aircraft will be travelling!


MyHandling

MyHandling integration

MyHandling is the business aviation planning and management software of choice for airports and FBOs around the globe.

Integration of MyHandling with Leon allows you to implement the process of easily and efficiently sending and managing Handling Requests.

More information on how MyHandling works within Leon can be found here.


MySky

MySky was launched, 6 years ago in 2015, as an online audit system. Since then, the company has migrated into a full spend management platform while serving the needs of many aviation industry stakeholders; such as jet owners, operators and consultants. They now serve hundreds of aircraft worldwide in a highly competitive and rewarding business environment. They operate as an independent third-party player and offer one of the largest cost databases in the industry.

MySky combines their independence with tech and data to provide an unmatched level of both operational and back-office efficiency for clients. The features that the system has built-in include automation of digital documentation, and the verification of invoices and receipts. Additionally, the use of big data enables accurate price benchmarking when comparing to the market averages.

The main advantage of a system like MySky is that AI-power learning enables companies to improve their operations while running at full throttle.

Three main aspects of the spend management value proposition are:

Data administration: automating time-consuming tasks, monitoring and administration of data within businesses, with a reduction of admin costs; Automated cost accounting: clients can be more efficient in their cost management; Benchmarking: making use of a unique database, each cost is put into perspective. This allows clients to have more power and proactively control their operational budget. In a nutshell, AI optimizes time-consuming tasks and eliminates errors. Two very cost-intensive and important functions within spend management.

For the integration to work API key needs to be generated from Leon and pass on to MySky technical support. MySky will use the key to switch the integration ON.

Please find more information on MySky’s website: https://mysky.com/about


PPS

PPS integration panel

In this section you can set up an integration with PPS. PPS is a pc-based Flight Planning software to private and commercial business aircraft operators, regional/charter/cargo/national airlines as well as military/utility operators.

The PPS Flight Planning system that gives a dynamic data feed of schedule changes, aircraft changes, load data etc.

Leon sends the following data to PPS: ID, Aircraft reg., Flight number, ADEP, ADES, ALTN, ALTN2, STD, STA, PAX number, Male (number), Female (number), Child (number), Infant (number), Cargo (mass of cargo), Catering (Mass of catering), Ref Number (reference number that the scheduling software can use as its internal key to the flight).

Crew positions which are sent from Leon to PPS are (Leon position = PPS position):

CPT = CMD

FO = COP (or if SP assigned instead of FO then SP = COP)

FA1 = CA1

FA2 = CA2

FA3 = CA3

FA4 = CA4

FA5 = CA5

FA6 = CA6

All other crew positions in Leon can not be sent to PPS due to PPS's API unable to recognize them on their side.

Integration between PPS and Leon comes down to feeding schedules as well as some basic data such as: cargo, number of PAX, Sex of PAX (if filled in in Phonebook) from Leon to PPS. The advantage of being integrated is that you do not have to re-enter the schedule in PPS.

Before enabling this option you need to contact support@airsupport.dk and request a special login and password for integration with Leon, which then need to be inserted into Leon.

Click an icon ENABLE and once a pop-up window shows up click your operator code. Insert previously received login & password (CHANGE button) and save. If you don't want flights to be sent out automatically to PPS unmark a checkbox 'Auto Send'. Otherwise, Leon will forward the flights to PPS every 5 minutes.

You can decide if you want all aircraft to be sent to PPS or only some particular ones - open a section 'Aircraft' and unmark tails which should not be sent to PPS.

Sending documents to CrewBriefing in PPS option is also available in Leon - you can read about it in THIS chapter of Leon manual.

If you have exported a flight from Leon to PPS again (after having made changes to it) - that flight will overwrite previously sent one.

Q5 Systems

Q5 integration section

Q5 Systems has been developing quality, security, and environmental, health and safety software since the early 1990's to help professionals better manage the complexity of an ever-changing business environment and the inherent risks associated with every day operations.

Q5 offers a suite of safety software products to enable optimal safety compliance including audit and inspections management, incident management, corrective actions, risk management, project observation management and custom development.

For more information visit Q5 Systems website.

How to integrate

In order to integrate Q5 with Leon, you need to switch the status to ON. Insert your domain name in the Q5. Insert your Q5 login details in the CREDENTIALS section. Q5 login details are the ones that you use to access Q5 System. Press AUTHENTICATE button to save changes.

How to configure

Once you have integrated you need to configure the available 'EVENTS'. There is a possibility of adding further 'Events' in the future.

The only currently available event is a 'Late Roster' warning.

Once you click on the 'Late Roster it will open a dropdown list with an option to choose Customer. 'Customer' is a Department within Q5 System you would like to send the warning to.

Switch the status to 'ON' and set the remaining items: Priority, Location, Type, Category and Subcategory. These items are uploaded from Q5 and can be added only in Q5. This is to correctly map the event from Leon in Q5 System.

If you want to update the list of items from Q5 in Leon simply go to Add-ons section, click on Q5 integration and the list of items should refresh. List of items you see in each following dropdown is a result of the item chosen in the previous dropdown.

Threshold is set in Leon and means the number of days from 'Now' onwards that Leon should search for a security event. More information in 'How it works' section.

Publishing of whole months checkbox is active, you should publish the roster for a whole month not later than your threshold days in advance. For example, if the threshold is set to 14 days, and you are to publish the roster for the full month of April, this roster has to be published by 17th of March.

How it works

Currently, the integration allows recording any security-related events, such as overdue publishing of the roster, in the Security Management System that is Q5. Depending on the configuration, if such an event occurs in Leon, the information is automatically forwarded to Q5 System.

Example

Duty Roster for Q5

The screenshot will help you to understand when the Duty Roster event is reported to Q5 systems.

Let's assume that 2nd February at 15:00 is our 'NOW'. Marked within red frame in the screenshot.

The 'Roster effective date' has been set to 13th February. This is the dark blue line in the screenshot.

In the integration settings we have inserted 14 days 'Threshold'. Field marked yellow in the screenshot.

The above values mean that the 'Roster effective date' is currently placed within the 'Threshold' (2nd of February at 15:00 + 14days is 16th of February at 14:59).

Since the 'Roster effective date' is within the 'Threshold' period, if we now move the 'Roster effective date' to any other date, the event will be reported within Q5 system.

For the Q5 notification purpose, Leon will always check when the effective date has been moved, considering the 'NOW' and the 'Threshold'.


RocketRoute

Rocket Route Integration

The RocketRoute activation process is done globally for the airline rather than per User.

In order to activate RocketRoute integration you need to:

  1. Go to 'Add-ons' section and open 'Configuration' tab of RocketRoute integration section
  2. Switch the Status button to 'ON'
  3. Insert RocketRoute dispatcher's login credentials. These are the login details of a person with the 'dispatcher' status in RocketRoute
  4. You can also tick the Autosend button. It will automatically send the schedule to RocketRoute every 5 minutes
  5. Save changes. This will activate the integration for all the Users

If the credentials are incorrect Leon will display a warning message. If along the way, you change your credentials in RocketRoute, you will be asked to update it in Leon.

Existing RocketRoute Users, who configured RocketRoute integration with their own login and password from the OPS page will not be affected by this change unless they wish to activate the 'Autosend' button. In this case, the abovementioned activation process must be followed.

Once the above conditions are fulfilled you can start sending flights to RocketRoute.

If you are sending the flights manually, this can only be done from OPS section of Leon.

To send a schedule to RocketRoute you have to:

  1. Click on the RocketRoute link available in the documents tooltip (right-click of the mouse in Table section) in order to activate “Send to RocketRoute” window.
  2. “Send to RocketRoute” window displays chosen the schedule and gives an option to choose the aircraft and crew. Aircraft and crew suggested in this window are the ones input in RocketRoute database. Click the “Send” button to send to RocketRoute.
  3. Schedule available to view in RocketRoute.

RocketRoute have their own database of Crew and Aircraft.

When sending flights to RocketRoute:

  • Flight Number - must be A-Z, 0-9, from 2 to 7 digits long.
  • Crew - are being matched by emails (work email address in Leon). If emails do not match, Crew space is left blank and Crew have to be picked manually in RocketRoute software.
  • Aircraft - matched by its registration. Hyphens in the registration are ignored.

IMPORTANT!

This is one way integration only. If there are any changes made in RocketRoute, they will not update in Leon and vice-versa. If there are changes made in Leon and the flight is re-sent to RocketRoute, this flight will be duplicated in RocketRoute.

SAFE

How it works

Endorsements definition list including Scandlearn

The integration allows importing Crew Endorsement from Scandlearn to Leon.

Once the integration is completed, Leon will download the endorsements from Scandlearn. Leon will not replace existing Leon endorsements with the downloaded ones but will create additional records in the endorsements list.

Leon runs a script every 24h checking if there were any changes in Scandlearn:

  • Changes to existing endorsements - any changes to matching endorsement in Scanlearn will update the expiry date of the same endorsement in Leon
  • New endorsement in Scandlearn - if there is a new endorsement added in Scandlearn, Leon will update the relevant User(s) record with the new one

Clicking on the Scandlearn endorsement definition will open a pop-up window where you can select the order on the endorsements list as well as insert the required actions when endorsements are due to expire

Crew endorsement view in the Endorsements section

Endorsements imported from Scandlearn display with Scandlearn logo and are not editable in Leon.

In the Endorsements list as well as in User profile, Scandlearn endorsements will display below the endorsements added in Leon.

The User endorsements from Scandlearn are not editable in Leon.

Certificates and any other files are not imported from Scandlearn.

Users are matched by the crew email address in both systems.

How it works

Aircraft details in TRAXXALL

The integration offers automatic TAH, TAC update for all aircraft and its main assembly parts (airframe, engines).

To make the integration work properly you need to insert the Aircraft serial number in Settings > Fleet.

Then, set up the airframe & engines details in a section MX > Fleet. Click on a selected aircraft and go to tab CAM. Here, select Airframe 'start date' and insert TAH & TAC values. You can do the same for engines.

Leon synchronizes changes in planned flight and JL with TRAXXALL. TRAXXALL then recalculates aggregated TAH and TAC values in their system.

TRAXXALL integration works one way only from Leon to TRAXXALL.

It is important that the Aircraft serial number, as well as the Engines serial numbers in Leon, match the serial numbers in TRAXXALL.

Videcom

Videcom Integration

Videcom is an IATA compliant Airline Reservation System providing Inventory Hosting, IATA E-ticketing, Internet Booking Engine, GDS Distribution, Codeshare and Interline connections. For more information please visit: Videcom Official Website.

You can set up an integration with Videcom by switching it to Active. Once it's activated insert integration details and press Save (see a screenshot on the right).

How to import flights

Importing fligts from Videcom

Once you are integrated you will see the action button located at the bottom bar of the OPS section which provides you with access to Videcom import trigger.

The process of importing flights from Videcom to Leon is as follow:

  1. Go to Add-ons section Videcom
  2. Click on Videcom in order to open Import window.
  3. Choose the date range and click 'IMPORT' button. Leon will search for the flights and if there are any scheduled in Videcom, they will be listed in the 'Import Window'. After clicking on 'IMPORT' button Leon will display flights divided into 3 sections: New - flights just imported for the first time; Updated - any updates made in Videcom or Leon to previously downloaded flight; Skipped - flights ignored during import due to a number of reasons such as: missing IATA code or number, unrecognized airport, etc.
  4. Relevant flights will display in Leon upon refreshing the OPS page view.

If the schedule changes are made in Leon, Videcom will overwrite it upon next import.

It is most convenient to have the Aircraft registration from Leon registered in Videcom. Otherwise, since Videcom is IATA based software, please make sure your Fleet have IATA codes inserted. If an aircraft registered in Videcom is missing in Leon, the flights will not be imported.
