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.
