Williams Advanced Engineering, the Formula One racing team’s technology and engineering services business, is collaborating with JPA Design to revolutionise future aircraft interiors through the application of F1-derived technology and world-class cabin design.
As airlines invest in new, lighter aircraft made of composite materials, such as carbon fibre in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A350, there is still great potential to make a step-change in cabin layout, passenger comfort, fuel-saving and carbon emission reductions, compared with existing, traditional approaches, through the application of new interior design and lightweight materials.
This partnership aims to capitalise on this potential by using proprietary technologies from both parties to save weight, while increasing comfort and space.
