What kind of glass is used on airplane windows?
Aircraft windows are made a form of plexiglass, such as Lexan polycarbonate, or acrylic plastics. This material is lightweight, relatively strong, and you can see clearly though it. The glass is layered, and the middle layer usually has a tiny hole in it to get rid of condensation.
