Alright... when I saw the 767-400 cockpit, I was surprised! It looks just like the 777's. I guess it saves money, it looks great! Anyway... my question, can anyone find any differences? I found one... the yoke! check it out! I'm sure the sizes are different too, but that's a given!

Interesting thing about the new technology large LCD displays. In this months flying magazine there is an interesting article about the new Cessna CJ1 with the new Collins Pro Line 21. It has the largest LCD EFIS/ECAS display of any aircraft... 5"x10" I believe. But these new LCD displays are pretty impressive. Apparently the old CRT's were limited in the amount of data they could present b/c of the refresh rate of the CRT. LCD's are not limited by this and are far superior in this sense. And comparing the 763 to the 764 the cockpit is much cleaner, all in an effort to reduce pilot workload.

The FBO that i am with down here manages a new CJ1...the thing is amazing. The cockpit is so simple and it makes IFR flying in bad conditions extremely easy. The Citation X is a much more complex airplane (2-3 times as expensive) and therefore the cockpit is much more complex. Thats the reason for the difference. The X is much faster and more efficient, hence the way it looks. It was designed by computers from scratch which is why it has such an odd look.
