Plans For A Windowless Plane

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

Cheap travel options such as cheap airplane tickets, and cheap vacation packages will not be part of a plan to launch a supersonic jet that will fly up to 18 passengers from London to New York in less than four hours at speeds up to 1,370 mph.

Spike Aerospace is designing a supersonic plane (the S-512) without windows to avoid glare for the passengers and to lighten the plane which otherwise has to be heaver to maintain cabin pressure and keep its windows intact. A plane without windows can move faster and save on fuel.

The S-512 is expected to be introduced in 2018 and will have screens covering the walls that will be able to show the outside view, provide entertainment, or display documents for in air meetings. The passengers will be able to control what is seen.

Spike Aerospace contends that within 20 years no new planes will offer windows, claiming that most of the time while flying, passengers cannot see much anyway.

Boeing has a different point of view stating that it is not looking at going windowless. Plans today call for Boeings 777 X, due out within the next decade, to come with windows. Boeing’s research has found that passengers want windows.

One pilot observed “Placing yourself in a sealed metal tube, flying faster than the speed of sound at great altitude with no special awareness would prove disturbing for most, and as a pilot I can see huge safety issues.” He observed that windows are not just there for passengers “but also to allow emergency workers to see in.”

Ultimately the future of windows on planes may well hinge on how significant the savings can be achieved by flying windowless planes.
