Dazzling new airplane patent offers seats on top of aircraft2At last, a new airplane seating patent that doesn’t try to squeeze more humans into a smaller space.

Instead, this concept aims to give passengers an even better view of the skies than the pilot’s by seating them on top of the plane, inside a transparent bubble-style canopy.

U.S. aerospace technology company Windspeed says its SkyDeck design can be installed on a variety of aircraft, from private jets to wide-bodied commercial planes.

Passengers access the seats, either via an elevator or staircase. Once inside they can rotate the twin or single seats through 360-degrees, enjoying incredible sky vistas.

“Current inflight entertainment offerings have not changed much over the decades,” Windspeed says. “We wanted to come up with a product that would provide a higher level of entertainment to reduce the boredom of long flights.”
