Seats with view: planes could have a dome
The concept from Windspeed Tech has been getting attention since it made an appearance at the National Business Aviation Association conference in November.
SkyDeck comes with two options: a staircase leading to two seats, or a futuristic elevator tube that takes those seats from the cabin up to the viewing deck. The canopy of the bubble is made with similar materials as used on supersonic fighter jets. Once in the SkyDeck, passengers can rotate 360 degrees for the ultimate viewing experience.
The teardrop shape of the apparatus will not interfere with an aircraft's tail performance, according to the company, but will affect fuel consumption because of the added weight.
