The Digital Copilot provides the single-pilot operator with some benefits of a crewed operation by use of a tablet device. The software-based capability includes proprietary algorithms and a unique user interface that form a cognitive assistant for the pilot of a general aviation aircraft. The Digital Copilot accesses a large set of aviation information sources to monitor flight progress and to alert the pilot to potential safety issues. This prototype technology may be applied to airspace awareness, clearance conformance, approach briefing automation, surface safety, holding pattern depiction and traffic pattern entry, and other tasks.
