This airline seat concept looks like it would make for an amazing view. The website comments that the design is currently “patent and trademark pending”. How long until we see this one on a commercial aircraft?
The SkyDeck is a system designed to provide an exhilarating view of the aircraft’s external environment while in flight, from a safe semi-external location. The aim was to create the next exciting experiential in-flight entertainment for VIP aircraft owners and the airline industry. For the airlines, it could be an additional source of revenue, as passengers could be charged on a pay-per-view basis.There are several combinations of design features that can be incorporated into the SkyDeck. For example, either an elevator or a staircase can be incorporated, and either a single- or two-seat platform can be specified.
