Measuring a remarkable 137cm x 45cm, the SkyView Panoramic Window will be more than three times wider than a standard window and about 40 per cent taller, offering expanded views of the skies and the world below.
Boeing says they plan to install as many as two pairs of the SkyView windows, positioned directly opposite each other, in a choice of locations aft of the wing on-board a selection of their corporate jets.
“We are proud to announce the next step for the SkyView Panoramic window together with Boeing Business Jets,” says Peter Somers, president of GKN’s Fokker Services business.
“The innovative technology applied in the largest window in the market, enhances passenger comfort and is now also available for BBJ MAX airplanes.”
The SkyView Panoramic Windows are being developed and produced by GKN Aerospace’s Fokker Technologies division and are made of acrylic. Fokker treats each window’s surface with an abrasion-resistant coating so that it remains clear.
