VIP aircraft interior parts manufacturer Jeff Bonner Research and Development (JBRND) has delivered its first electronically controlled window shades for the Boeing Business Jet BBJ787. The handover comes less than a week after the lightweight system, called SyncDrive, secured US certification.

While JBRND already designs and develops window shades for a range of business aircraft, including the BBJ and Airbus Corporate Jet families, this is the first system to be designed for the VIP-configured 787, says the San Antonio, Texas-based manufacturer.

“SyncDrive window shade units are designed to be installed behind a standard or custom sidewall panel and can be integrated into various aircraft cabin management systems,” explains JBRND. “They also operate with or without the electronic dimming windows that come as standard on 787 aircraft.”

To date, SyncDrive shades have been selected for four of the 12 BBJ 787s on order and in various stages of completion.
