The fu­ture of in­flight en­ter­tain­ment?

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Destination Mexico - www.wind­

Ever won­dered what the world looks like from out­side a flight? While air­lines try to im­prove on ex­ist­ing view­ing sys­tems, Shakil Hus­sain and the team at Wind­speed Tech­nolo­gies take a dif­fer­ent view of in­flight en­ter­tain­ment. The com­pany’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary Sky­Deck prom­ises an ex­hil­a­rat­ing chance to tran­scend the tra­di­tional lim­its of the air­craft and see the world from out­side the fuse­lage. VIPs and air­lines can choose from a sin­gle- or two-seat plat­form, raised to the lim­its of the plane (whether wide-bod­ied or a small ex­ec­u­tive jet) by stair­case or lift. The tear-drop canopy of the pod will be made of the same high­strength ma­te­ri­als as those used on su­per­sonic fighter jets, en­sur­ing the Sky­Deck can with­stand all con­di­tions and have min­i­mal ef­fect on aero­nau­ti­cal drag. Prices stretch from US$3 mil­lion for a sin­gle-seat stair­case op­tion to $25 mil­lion for wide-bod­ied air­lin­ers, open­ing up a world of new ex­pe­ri­ences in the sky.
