Description: The Boeing 777 is the first aircraft to be fully digitally designed using 3D computer graphics eliminating the need for costly full-scale mock-ups. The result is an aircraft larger than all other twin-engine and tri-engine aircraft and smaller than Boeing 747 aircraft while aimed at the medium and long range markets and bringing the low-costs benefits owned by twin-engine aircraft.
The long range Boeing 777 program was launched in 1990 with an order from United Airlines and entered airlines service in 1995. The aircraft is currently available in six models: 777-200, 777-200ER (Extended Range), 777-200LR (Longer-Range), 777-300, 777-300ER and 777F (freighter). A seventh member is under development slated for entry into service before 2020, the 777X.
Introducing a new wing design, more efficient and powerful General Electric GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000 or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines, and lighter structures, the 777 is a fuel-efficient aircraft. Fuel savings allow to offer lower prices to airlines' customers while minimizing environmental impact.
The Boeing 777-200ER is a variant of 777-200 airliner modified shrinking passenger seating capacity to achieve an extended range while retaining the remaining 777-200 characteristics.
Boeing offers Class 3 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) package to new-built and existing 777 passenger airplanes. EFB gives technology advantages for safe, secure and efficient operations. It includes an onboard performance tool that allows the pilot to instantly calculate the ideal speed and engine setting for an aircraft, in any weather condition, on any runway with any payload.
In addition, EFB includes the award-winning Jeppesen Airport Moving Map application, which combines high-fidelity, geo-referenced airport taxi charts and precise navigational signals to show flight crews exactly where they are on the surface of an airport. EFB was certified by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in October 2003 at the same time the first commercial unit was delivered to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on the carrier's first 777.
In March 2005, Air New Zealand (ANZ) signed for the EFB to be installed on its eight Boeing 777-200ERs and two 787s. Air Malaysia was the first carrier in Asia/Pacific region entitled to use the EFB. In January 2006 Aeromexico announced was going to install Class 3 EFB on two new 777-200ER airplanes.
