Windows are a key component of the Lilium Jet fuselage, playing an integral role in providing a pleasant in-flight experience, as well as supporting aircraft safety and performance. With several decades of experience in the aviation market, Saint-Gobain Aerospace is a tier-one supplier of cockpit and cabin windows for all major commercial aircraft and helicopter manufacturers, and this partnership continues Lilium’s strategy of working with established aerospace suppliers to support certification and scaled production. 

Martin Schuebel, Lilium Senior Vice President Procurement commented: “Drawing on decades of expertise in the aviation industry, Saint-Gobain Aerospace will bring best-in-class window innovation to the Lilium Jet. Our partnership is yet another step towards delivering unparalleled passengers experience while meeting the stringent safety and performance requirements of the aviation industry.”

Saint-Gobain Aerospace is determined to bring innovative solutions to support a safer and greener aviation industry. We're excited to partner with Lilium and bring solutions that will shape the future of sustainable air mobility.”

The Lilium Jet windows, custom-designed by Saint-Gobain, will have a lightweight construction and improved visibility enhancement such as limiting icing and fogging phenomenon, all of which will contribute to the aircraft’s performance and operational goals and reduce energy consumption. The windows will provide best-in-class product reliability and an extended operating lifetime, while also delivering outstanding cabin comfort through excellent visibility, acoustic insulation, and temperature and light control.

Additionally, the Lilium Jet cockpit windshields will be designed to meet regulatory requirements, providingoptimal pilot visibility and bird strike resistance for pilot protection. With a commitment to innovation, Saint-Gobain Aerospace will work to continuously improve the performance of the windows throughout the partnership as well as bring new capabilities and solutions that enhance the mission of Lilium Jets.
