In response to airline preference, the layout of the 777 flight deck is in a horizontal format similar to that of the 747-400. Features include the following:
- Principal flight, navigation and engine information is presented on six large display screens incorporating advanced liquid-crystal display technology.
- The new displays save space, weigh less, require less power and generate less heat, which contributes to greater reliability and a longer service life.
- The flat panel displays remain clearly visible in all conditions, even direct sunlight.
- Three multipurpose control display units (CDU) provide data display and entry capabilities for flight management functions. These units are the primary interface with an integrated Airplane Information Management System (AIMS). The CDUs have color displays, again in response to market preferences. Adding color allows pilots to assimilate the information more quickly.
Integrated Airplane Information Management System (AIMS) provides flight and maintenance crews all pertinent information concerning the overall condition of the airplane, its maintenance requirements and its key operating functions, including flight, thrust and communications management.
A three-axis “fly-by-wire” flight control system saves weight, simplifies factory assembly compared to conventional mechanical systems relying on steel cables, and requires fewer spares and less maintenance in airline service.
The flight deck is equipped with two drivers with a five-screen electronic flight information with five, 8 inches (203 mm) color screen LCD, which includes two primary flight displays, two navigation screens and a engine Indication and warning system of the crew (EICAS) screen.
The central control panel between the two pilots has three multipurpose Control and display units for aircraft system information management, information systems, the flight management functions, control and communications push.
A two bunk crew rest area is installed on the port side of the flight deck. A facility is an optional module crew rest in the radiant section. The rest of the staff houses module occupies six litters and soil surface the same as a standard 96in pallet load.
“The Boeing Commercial Airplanes Group introduced the Boeing 777 family of aircraft in 1989.”
The aircraft has fly-by-wire controls of Boeing flight envelope protection and autopilot functions and stabilization.
The fly-by-wire signals the rudder pedals driven by pilots and the control of the pilot columns to provide sensory awareness of the activities of automated systems.
The aircraft has triple redundant digital autopilot and flight director designed by Rockwell Collins. The BAE Systems (formerly Marconi Avionics) triple digital primary flight computers provide control limits and commands flight envelope protection. Each of the three primary flight computers contains three different and separate set of 32-bit microprocessors, Motorola, Intel and AMD, to manage the functions of fly-by-wire.
