Sweet shiny cockpit: Boeing 787 for the inside

Mike Carriker, chief pilot for the Boeing 787 program, in a nice new report lays out the twinjet’s flight deck design and features, as well as Boeing’s philosophy.

Carriker notes, for example, that more features are provided as basic including: dual HUD, vertical situation display, large format map 1280 NM range, independent TCAS displays, RNP .1, full face O2 masks, triple tuning control panels, ATC uplink preview windows/MCP, electronic flight bag, electronic checklist, enhanced ground proximity warning system, airport map, single SATCOM w/full provisions for dual*, flight deck printer, HF data link*, light interphone system, dual cockpit voice recording (extended recording), auto scan weather radar, full time tactical map, and message based synoptic selection.

    Awesome post on the 787 flight deck. The truly amazing thing about it is its ability to grow over time. Future models are looking at incorporating Honeywell’s Integrated Primary Flight display and Enhanced and Synthetic Vision system. Commercial certification for these platforms has yet to happen, but once they do, look for the 787 to be among the first platforms.

    If your readers want a closer look at the displays, I put together these renderings last spring.
