Flight deck

The flight deck of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner introduces new technologies to help pilots work more efficiently and safely while maintaining significant operational commonality with previous generations of Boeing airplanes. Operational commonality is the similarity between airplanes in operating procedures, checklists, and flight crew interfaces. Commonality simplifies training and can decrease airline operating costs. To achieve operational commonality with the B777, the Boeing team worked to ensure the new airplane would in many ways “feel” like a B777, while implementing new capabilities and simplifying the flight deck.
