Airbus has been awarded a patent for technology that would facilitate the elimination of flight deck glazing, replacing it with display screens that would reproduce external visuals. Airbus has stated the technology will allow the aerodynamic conventions of aircraft fuselages to be completely redesigned for maximum economic potential and optimal structural strength, as it will allow the flight deck to be placed anywhere within the fuselage instead of strictly at the front. However, Airbus has not stated when the concept may be placed into production as there are current technological limitations.
