GKN Aerospace has been awarded a contract for the design, development and production of transparencies for Bombardier’s Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets. Initial test items will be delivered in 2013.

The contract includes both the cockpit and passenger cabin windows that will incorporate GKN’s CrystalVue I abrasion resistant coating for the ultra-long-range business jets. Design and production will take place at the GKN facility in Garden Grove, California.

“These windows represent the absolute state-of-the-art in transparencies technology. They have been produced using advanced forming technology and incorporate our market-leading coatings, which together provide unbeatable performance and reliability in all operating conditions,” said Ron Kato, vice president and managing director of GKN’s Special Products division.
