Airline Pilots Try Out
The New Boeing 737
Pilots from 16 of the 19 air
lines which have ordered the
737 flew the new Boeing twinjet
in Seattle recently during an all
day demonstration at Boeing
Brien Wygle, assistant direc
tor of flight operations for Boe
ing and 737 project pilot, was in
the cockpit for the seven one-
hour flights.
“I took two or three pilots
with me each trip,” Wygle said.
“Each of the 18 pilots had a
good chance to become acquaint
ed with our newest jetliner.”
The operation was much like
the work the short-range jet
transport will face when it is
delivered to the airlines late this
year. Designed for numerous
takeoffs and landings, the 737
completed more than 30 during
the day. A number of takeoffs
were made with a simulated
failure of one of the two engines.
Landings were the touch-and-go
type. Some were made using
instrument approaches. Wygle
said each pilot had the oppor
tunity to land and take off at
least once.
The pilots were unanimous in
their praise of the 737. “They
particularly were pleased with
its excellent handling qualities,
cockpit simplicity and systems
such as cabin pressurization,”
Wygle said.
Wygle added that they also
were impressed with the 737’s
new control wheel system when
flying in the autopilot mode. “It
is just one of many features
which simplifies the work in the
cockpit and makes it possible to
devote more attention outside
the airplane.”
“They gave the aircraft a
good workout which included
stalls with various flap set
tings,” Wygle said.
The Boeing-owned ' number
one 737 was used for the flights.
