The I-Shade cabin light management system has been picked by Nextant Aerospace for its 400Next upgrade of the Beechjet 400A.

The I-Shade “smart” windows will be integrated into the Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management system on the 400Next “to create a seamless cabin environment management system.”

Developed by Inspect Tech of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., I-Shade allows passengers to manage light, glare and heat by electrically adjusting the amount of light energy entering the cabin through a gel embedded within each window pane. A single switch allows passengers to select from an opaque state
to almost 100-percent clear.

The 400Next’s cabin configuration allows for up to eight passengers and includes a club seating aft option. Priced at $3.9 million, it will carry four passengers 2,005 nm and cruise at 460 knots.
