PPG's aerospace business is a leading and experienced source for original-equipment and replacement windshields and side cockpit windows for airplanes produced by The Boeing Company. As the sole manufacturer of original equipment cockpit windows for 747-100/200/300/400 airplanes, PPG is the only supplier able to provide the latest enhancements for replacement windshields and glass or lightweight glass-faced acrylic side cockpit windows.
Operators know that PPG transparencies have outstanding service life, as shown in PPG in-service reliability studies. The PPG main windshield for the 747 is the most reliable windshield made today and sets the standard against which all other windows are measured.
PPG offers two designs for the No. 2 and No. 3 side cockpit windows for the 747: all-glass and lightweight glass- faced acrylic windows. The lightweight glass-faced acrylic configuration is a variant of the original cockpit window with proven reliability and offers weight savings of up to 37 pounds.
Operators can buy new replacement windshields and side cockpit windows from PPG and enjoy the convenience and time savings of buying directly from a single source for their entire fleet of airplanes produced by The Boeing Company.
