Bathroom seat with a view; That's right! The all-new A-380 is trying to make air-travel fun again, with a bathroom with a view. But Airbus is not the only commercial aircraft company, which has their shit together. Boeing is also planning as a standard feature on its 787 airliners to have a window in the laboratories. Will this get more air travelers out of their SUVs and into airliners for those 350 plus mile journeys? Some industry analysts think it just might be the ticket the market sector needs.
The Airbus A-380, which will be the largest commercial airliner in the world; will also have a stand up bar, not in thunderstorms. It will have on board showers, duty free shops and scenery. Yes, scenery; flat panel display scenes like waterfalls and such. Internet access, on-board messaging service, fax service; you name it, you got it at flight level 4 Zero. (40,000 feet above sea level).
The Boeing 787 will have humidified air, so no more dry eyes during flights and because of its stronger composite cabin, it will leave the cabin pressure at 6,000 feet instead of 8,000 or 10,000 feet, meaning it is safer on the bio-system with more oxygen. Ready to get out of the driver seat yet and into a futuristic amenity rich modern jet airliner? The major commercial jet manufacturers and airlines are betting that you will. Both Airbus and Boeing have seen record orders for their latest model jets. Think on this.

Laser Beam Guidance For Oshkosh Air Show
The Federal Aviation Administration is devising a method of alerting pilots who enter a restricted airspace to leave immediately. To do this is will use a laser beam pointed at the aircraft in a certain color. This is something new, but the concept is probably something, which came from the VASI light system for glide paths on landing. VASI is Vertical Air Situation Indicator.General Aviation pilots are familiar with the sayings; "Red over red you're Dead." The VASI lights had a set of green and red lights thr...(related: Aviation)
