The 767 and Boeing 757 have a common type rating and common crew quali-
fication. More than 26 airlines operate both 757 and 767 aircraft allowing the airlines
flexibility in flight crew assignment and in reduced operating logistics requirements
such as reduced spares inventories. The aircraft have the same flight crew operating
instructions, similar maintenance schedules, manuals and inspection routines.
The Boeing 767 is used as the platform for the 767 AWACS Airborne Warning
and Control System, in service with the Japanese Defense Agency, and for the mili-
tary tanker transport aircraft that has been ordered by the Italian Air Force and the
Japanese Air Self Defence Force.
Four models of the 767 are available:
The 767-200ER is an extended range version announced in 1983 seating 181 to
224 passengers. The range is up to 12,325km. The aircraft first flew in 1984 with first
delivery in 1984 to El Al airlines.
The Boeing 767-300ER, around 6.43m (21ft) longer than the 200ER, provides
seating for 218 to 269 passengers and has a range up to 11,389km. First flight was in
1986 with first delivery in 1988 to American Airlines.
The 767-300 Freighter, launched in 1993 and first flight in 1994, has a freight
volume capacity of 16,034m³ and a range of 5,560km. First delivery was in 1995 to
United Parcel Service.
The 767-400ER, around 6.43m (21ft) longer than the 300ER, is the latest
member of the 767 family and the first flight took place in October 1999. The
stretched aircraft provides seating for 304 passengers in two-class cabin layout and
245 seats for passengers in a three-class layout. The 767-400ER entered service with
Continental Airlines (total order 16) in September 2000 and with Delta Airlines (total
order 21) in October 2000. The 767-400ER features aerodynamic improvements, in-
cluding new raked wing tips, increased takeoff weight capability, a new main landing
gear, and a new upgraded flight deck. The new, highly backswept (raked) wing-tip
extensions increase the 767's 156ft wingspan to 170ft 4in (52m). The 7ft 8in (2.4m)
wing extensions are designed to increase the aerodynamic efficiency of the wing and
thus improve the range.
The flight deck, which accommodates the pilot and co-pilot is similar to that of
the 757. The aircraft's flight instrument system is the Honeywell EFIS-700.The navi-
gation suite includes Honeywell VHF omnidirectional radio, an integrated instrument
landing system, and a marker beacon receiver, an automatic direction finder, distance
measuring system and a radio magnetic indicator RMI-743. There are dual digital
flight management systems and triple redundant flight control computers. The aircraft
carries CAT IIIb landing certification.
Rockwell Collins has developed a Large Format Display System, which has
been fitted in the 767-400ER. The system incorporates six 203mm x 203 mm (8in x
8in) liquid crystal displays.
The 767 aircraft in service with All Nippon Airways, Britannia Airways and
Transbrasil are fitted with the Honeywell RDR-4A colour weather radar.
