Cycling in the Sky? It Might Not Be as Far Away as You Think
Airbus' Silicon Valley outpost, known as A3, launched a project in December which would give airlines the ability to swap prebuilt modules in and out of the body of the plane, letting airlines change the interior of airplanes at will. The project, called Transpose, is based on technology that is similar to that of cargo planes and would allow airlines to install modules containing cocktail bars, spas, coffee shops, lounge areas and even a fitness center.
Throughout May, travelers passing through San Jose, California (SJC) can get a front row seat to one of A3's full size modules. It's partnered with Reebok and Peloton to create a gym that could one day be found in a commercial airliner at 35,000 feet. Inside this state-of-the-art cabin slash cycling gym are Peloton bikes, yoga mats and resistance bands. Visitors to the San Jose airport are welcome to try out the fitness cabin, though it's unclear if or when passengers will be able to get a full workout in while mid-flight.
