No windows in planes??!!

Are you afraid of flying? Do you feel safer while sitting closer to the window? Well then I don’t have good news for you. It might happen that in 10 years there won’t be any windows and windowless planes will give passengers a panoramic view of the sky.

So it looks like in a bit more than in decade, windows of commercial aircraft would be replaced by full-length screens. Passengers would be able to switch the view on and off according to their preference.

Putting windows in a plane leads to strengthening the fuselage, that’s why cargo planes don’t have it. Planes would be lighter without windows so they would spend less fuel.

Center for Process Innovation, CPI, created the first-stage concept. CPI is an organisation that works with companies to develop new products. They responded to real constant quest of the aviation industry – how to reduce weight of the aircraft?

“Follow the logical thought through. Let’s take all the windows out – that’s what they do in cargo aircraft – what are the passengers going to do? If you think about it, it’s only really the people that are sitting next to windows that will suffer.” said Dr Jon Helliwell of the CPI.
