Albuquerque, New Mexico | July 21, 2017 ONE Aviation announced today, at EAA AirVenture 2017, the selection of ALTEOS® interactive window systems by PPG for its “Project Canada” aircraft.

PPG (NYSE:PPG) will provide cabin windows that incorporate Alteos interactive window systems utilizing the NUANCE™ V2 shading product by Vision Systems. The dimmable windows will enable passengers to independently tune a window’s tint from clear to dark to regulate daylight, glare and heat ingress while preserving or blocking the view. Vision Systems’ latest generation product offers unprecedented optical quality while enhancing visual, thermal and acoustic comfort.

The “Canada” project was announced last year as an upgrade to the Eclipse 500/550. Relative to the EA550, this upgraded configuration holds more fuel in a longer wing, with 2-foot extensions on each side; more cabin volume, with a 14-inch fuselage stretch; Garmin G3000 avionics; and more power with the Williams International FJ33 engines.

“PPG is excited to work with ONE Aviation and Vision Systems to develop Alteos interactive window systems for dimmable cabin windows for such an innovative new aircraft offering,” said Brent Wright, PPG global business director for aerospace transparencies. “As the transparencies supplier for the Eclipse 550 jet, PPG understands how important it is for ONE Aviation to provide its customers with a superior and comfortable flying experience. We look forward to helping ONE Aviation deliver on that goal.”

“A priority at ONE Aviation is to maximize ease of use and passenger comfort. The PPG ALTEOS® system provides both with simple and effective control of window shading”, said Steve Serfling, COO/EVP Product Development. “We believe our customers will appreciate this advancement in technology”.
