Saint-Gobain Aerospace to supply Lilium with windows and windshields

Lilium and Saint-Gobain Aerospace today announced a supplier partnership for the development, series production, and customer support of the Lilium Jet’s transparencies (windows and windshields).

“Windows are a key component of the Lilium Jet’s fuselage, playing an integral role in providing a pleasant in-flight experience, as well as supporting aircraft safety and performance,” according to a company press release. “With several decades of experience in the aviation market, Saint-Gobain Aerospace is a tier-one supplier of cockpit and cabin windows for all major commercial aircraft and helicopter manufacturers, and this partnership continues Lilium’s strategy of working with established aerospace suppliers to support certification and scaled production.

“The Lilium Jet’s windows, custom-designed by Saint-Gobain, will have a lightweight construction and improved visibility enhancement such as limiting icing and fogging phenomenon, all of which will contribute to the aircraft’s performance and operational goals and reduce energy consumption. The windows will provide best-in-class product reliability and an extended operating lifetime, while also delivering outstanding cabin comfort through excellent visibility, acoustic insulation, and temperature and light control. Additionally, the Lilium Jet’s cockpit windshields will be designed to meet regulatory requirements, providing optimal pilot visibility and bird strike resistance for pilot protection.
