Pilots with no view Future airliner flight decks may do away with windows and move out of the nose of the aircraft, according to Airbus.The European airplane maker filed a patent application for a flight deck that relies mostly or entirely on electronic viewscreens.The first advantage is aerodynamic, since flight deck windows require interrupting the ideal scalpel shape of the nose, Airbus wrote. Also, big windows and the reinforcement required for them add weight to the aircraft. Without the need for windows, the flight deck could move "to an unused zone of the aircraft. One possibility is the base of the tail, where the flight deck could still have some windows. Another is in part of the cargo hold. Airbus envisions a system that could project holograms of objects such as storm clouds and ground obstacles, and chart a course around them. http://www.seattlepi.com/business/boeing/article/Airbus-Pilots-don
737s need protection from cockpit electronics hacking The FAA published an order in June in the Federal Register, requiring Boeing to modify the technology aboard 737 jetliners to protect the planes against computer hackers. Effective immediately, the order applies to 737-700, -700C, -800, -900ER, -7, -8 and -9 aircraft. These models feature a digital systems architecture composed of several connected networks. According to the FAA, the network configuration on these models allows increased connectivity with external networks, such as passenger entertainment and information services, which create possible vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers. The proposed order ensures that unauthorized sources external to the plane do not receive access to the airplane's electronic systems. http://www.hstoday.us/briefings/industry-news/single-article/faa-orders-boeing-to-protect-737s-from-hackers/f52534c49760584b58f8ca9e317f9141.html
