December 7, 2016 — Boeing Business Jets has announced that it is working with GKN Aerospace’s Fokker business to develop, produce, offer and support the Skyview Panoramic Window, claimed to be the largest window available on any passenger jet offered today.
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. Measuring approximately 4.5ft by 1.5ft (1.4 x 0.5m), the window feature is created by effectively joining three existing B737 windows together. The window 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.
