Skyview Panoramic To Develop World's Largest Plane Window In 2018

Skyview Panoramic will launch the world's largest plane window pane developed by Fokker Technologies for the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), BBJ2 and BBJ Max aircraft. The Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency have approved the plans for the creation of the 4.5 feet by 1.5 feet plane, which will be deployed next year in all corporate aircraft.

The large window is almost equivalent to three window panes in an aircraft and would outdo Boeing 787 Dreamliner's windows of just 1.5 meters launched in 2009, according to The Telegraph. Owners of existing Boeing planes can also request and upgrade their seat view to the large window by next year and will see much of the windows to be located behind the wings.

Stuff.co.nz reported Peter Somers, President of GKN's Fokker Services business, as saying, "We are proud to announce the next step for the Skyview Panoramic window together with Boeing Business Jets. The innovative technology applied in the largest window in the market enhances passenger comfort and is now also available for BBJ MAX airplanes."

Fokker Technologies proposed the plan to Skyview years ago though they have since been waiting for the aviation authority's approval. An airplane's window is usually small so that the body of the plane will get to maximize the hull on them for a stronger airframe. Bigger windows would require more reliable airframes to support the body of the aircraft. Because of air pressure, the shell and the structures are susceptible to breakage if they aren't well reinforced.

During the 1950s, similarly, the de Havilland DH 106 Comet, the world's first commercial jetliner, introduced large windows which caused to be disastrous because of body fatigue due to a not well-formed airframe. Design flaws were found due to the windows installed at that time. It was then redesigned as smaller, oval windows afterward.
