In the frame of Clean Sky 2 JU, the HARVIS (Human Aircraft Roadmap for Virtual Intelligent System) project introduces a cockpit assistant committed to help the pilot to reroute the aircraft in single-pilot operations. A relevant scenario for this AI assistant is that in which diversion to alternate airfield is required after an emergency. Another interesting scenario is the anticipation of radar vectors in the arrivals with time enough to safely configure the aircraft for the descent. A demonstrator is being developed for this second scenario in the context of Project HARVIS (www.harvis-project.eu). Diversion is often required after system failure, medical emergency, or just for weather phenomena (dense fog, storms, etc.) in the approaching. During regular operation if a diversion is needed the pilot in command and first officer discuss on the multiple options they have and try to find out the one they think is the best. The AI assistant will take into account characteristics of nearby airports, METAR at destination, and facilities to take care of passengers, among other factors. It may then consider several options, assess the risks and benefits of each one, and finally inform the pilot accordingly. In this scenario, the digital assistant takes care of the Options and Risks in a FORDEC procedure.
