Fear of flying. Pilot’s windscreens.
Direct Vision window
The pilots’ screens are usually made of three independent layers of glass each reinforced to enormous strength.
Even if two layers shattered the screen would be strong enough to do its job.
You will also see that there is a screen where you can see the pilot …this is the direct vision window. For people who are claustrophobic knowing that this windows can be opened in flight can be a source of great relief. One reglar contributor to our fear of flying community had her entire life changed by knowing that simple thing.
