June 16, 2015 – Boeing has outlined a variety of leading-edge technologies at Paris Air Show, including a few that could make the flying experience a little more comfortable and exciting. Mike Sinnett, vice president of product development at Boeing Commercial Airplanes revealed innovations in operational efficiency, connectivity, advanced materials, cabin experience and advanced technologies that demonstrate the company’s thoughts on future technology.

For the cabin experience, Boeing is looking at creating a secure, connected aircraft that enables analytics-driven operations, and to integrating sound and light inside the cabin in order to allow airlines to reinforce their branding and uniquely present valuable information to passengers.

Considering the wider aircraft, Boeing is looking at creating advances in natural laminar flow that greatly improve fuel efficiency; creating stronger, lightweight and more durable materials beyond carbon composites; advanced, automated manufacturing techniques; new sustainable fuels and alternative propulsion systems; navigation and flight routing advances; and an entirely paperless flight deck.
