GKN Aerospace, BBJ introduce skyview panoramic window

Boeing (NYSE: BA) Business Jets has partnered with GKN Aerospace´s Fokker business to develop, produce, offer and support the skyview panoramic window, available on BBJ passenger jets, the company said.

The company said the window will be available as a feature on the BBJ, BBJ 2, and all three members of the BBJ MAX family — including the new BBJ MAX 7 — with scheduled entry-into-service in 2018.

The skyview panoramic window, measuring approximately 4.5 by 1.5 feet, is created by joining three existing 737 windows together. It is situated aft of the wing with multiple potential locations based on the airplane type.

The window will be available through GKN Aerospace´s Fokker business as a retrofit on existing BBJs, and through Boeing Business Jets as a priced feature. It will be delivered on BBJ MAX airplanes starting in 2018.

The Boeing Business Jet series are variants of Boeing jet airliners for the corporate jet market. The Boeing Business Jet is a 50/50 partnership between Boeing Commercial Airplanes and GE Aviation.
