Kyoto Airship cabin features spectacular viewing platform worth $55m

  • Embraer's design for their Lineage 1000, sees the cabin opened up as a viewing platform with more windows
  • The design concept is called the Kyoto Airship, with the window panels extended vertically and onto the ceiling
  • The renderings are currently designed for the private jet market, with aircraft costing in excess of $55m 

This revolutionary plane cabin interior offers stunning panoramic views that could mean an end to having to open a small porthole for natural light.

Despite cruising above the clouds in excess of 30,000 feet, getting natural light into a packed cabin does not come easily.

However, with Brazilian-based aerospace company Embraer's design for their Lineage 1000, the cabin is opened up as a magnificent viewing platform, with giant rectangular windows and skylights on the ceiling.

The design concept is called the Kyoto Airship, with the window panels extended vertically and there are even viewing points on the cabin ceiling.

Speaking to Business Insider, Embraer's vice president of interior design, Jay Beever said: 'We've proven to ourselves that we can make this, and when a Lineage customer is ready to order this airplane, we will make it.'

Beever said the design team took into account the fact that passengers may want to sit on the floor of the aircraft, rather than in a traditional seat, with the Kyoto Airship being named in reference to how a Japanese traveller may prefer to fly.

The longer windows and sky panels, or skylights, ensure views are available whatever the seating position. 

As well as huge windows, the lights in the cabin are also bigger, offering the customer the best of both worlds of natural and man-made

The renderings are currently designed for the private jet market, and understandably these aircraft don't come cheap, costing around $55million (£38million). 

The Embraer Lineage 1000 is the pinnacle when it comes to private planes and was designed to cater to long-haul journeys embarked upon by royalty and powerful politicians alike.

But that's not to say that so-called normal families can rent out this extravagant offering as well, it's just that it will cost you. £8,300 per hour, in fact.

Still, you get what you pay for - especially in terms of space. The central living area, for example, measures over 8ft wide by over 6ft high and is fitted with white leather banquettes and fine wool carpets.

The private plane boasts 323 cubic feet of on board storage which is enough to accommodate 'mountains' of luggage, ideal for far-flung shopping trips

But buyers can choose from 700 fabrics and dozens of carpet options.

And when it comes little extras, iPod docking stations, televisions, Blu-ray players and Wi-Fi are the norm.

Elegant tables and fine crockery are similarly expected when it comes to dining on board.

The kitchen has a convection and microwave oven, plus an espresso maker and a shockingly expensive €50,000 (£35,000) dishwasher. Plus, it's filled with gourmet vacuum-packed food and high-end wine before the passengers arrive.

The cabin of the plane is divided into five areas, which includes a master bedroom complete with queen bed and walk-in shower.

And don't worry about sharing your private bath with your fellow passengers - there are two additional toilets up front.
