I was told that pilots that fly the 757 can also fly the 767, is this true and is it a common practice.
Is this true with the A318,19,20 and 21? Or do they only fly the specific aircraft?
Any others?

It is very true for both the 75/76 and the A320 family. They all have the same cockpit, thus the pilot's can fly their respectable family aircraft. The only thing they have to do is go through differential training, which is nothing really.

This is not totally true. The 757 and 767-200 are the only versions that have the same cockpit, while the -300 has a difference EADI and the -400 has the 777 layout. Also the systems between the two types are different.

As for airlines, to my knowledge I don't know of any carrier that makes their 757/767 typed crews keep current on both aircraft. Instead they fly one of the 2. Making a pilot keep current on both aircraft's systems would be a tremendous workload.

I remember talking to an AA first officer friend of mine many years ago. At the time he was rated as a first officer on both the 757 and 767. He said that he was flying the 767 Transatlantic. I asked him how the 757 compares to flying the 767. He said that he had never flown the 757; and at that time he had never even flown a 757 as a passenger. He showed me his ATP which showed both 767 and 757.

The 737 family from the -300 to the -900 all have a common type rating.

Cockpit commonality does not make a common type. If that was true, the 731/2 would be on the same type rating as the 733-739, but performance differences make a huge difference. The A340 and A330 have to be crewed by different pilots, even though their cockpits are absolutely identical

A32S and 737 pilots need no differential training if the cockpit readouts are set up the same.

Actually, later 762s were available with the 763 cockpit. Also, the -400 is available with the same conversion software as the 737NG to allow full interchangability

CO has pilots fly all 757/767 types
