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 777-8, formerly known as the Boeing 777-8X, is a new version encompassing state-of-the-art technologies from the 787 airliner and powered by the more efficient General Electric GE9X engine. It is scheduled to enter revenue service before 2020.
