PPG to Supply Falcon 20/50 All-Glass Cockpit Windows to Dassault
October 11, 2011

PPG Industries’ aerospace transparencies group has signed an agreement with Dassault Aviation to supply all-glass heated windshields and all-glass heated side cockpit windows for Falcon 20 and Falcon 50 business jets.

Under the contract, PPG will produce replacement windshields and side windows for Dassault as long as at least four of the Falcon aircraft remain flying, according to Arthur Scott, PPG Aerospace global director for general aviation transparencies. PPG officials say there are 1,200 Falcon 20 and Falcon 50 jets flying today.

“PPG has extensive experience producing the forward-facing windshields, and we are pleased Dassault came to us to supply all of the cockpit windows for these aircraft,” says Scott.

All of the cockpit windows are being manufactured at PPG’s plant in Huntsville, Ala.
