Mr. Pawel Kruk

An Aviapreneur from Poland with more than 15 years of aviation experience. He’s the founder and CEO of Leon Software, a company that provides cloud-based flight management and scheduling software, which he established in 2007.

 Watch this Episode to know Mr. Pawel’s answers to the following questions:

  • Can you share with us the story of the time when Leon Software’s idea first came to your mind?
  • How easy was it to turn the idea of that potential business opportunity into a real business? When you started the business, did you have the skills needed to actually achieve that? I mean being a pilot, is it sufficient to start a business? What did you do to complement the skills that you miss?
  • Can you elaborate on the process of continuing to grow and develop the software while at the same time having to serve your existing market and clients?
  • Are the requirements of commercial airlines similar to those of the business aviation industry in a way that made this development possible and smooth?
  • How do you sell clients and persuade them to switch to Leon from manual operations or from other software solutions?
  • What’s the future of Leon? Do you see that you currently fulfill all the needs of your target market?
  •  I think you have more trip support companies using Leon software to serve their customers. Can you share more info with the listeners about this?
  • What advice do you give the aviation professionals willing to take their career to the next level by starting and growing their aviation business?
