Air Canada 777 First Flight.

Some of you on previous threads were wondering about when ACs 777s first flight was going to be.

I just got off the phone with the 777 Chief Pilot (actually called Fleet manager) who told me this morning that some changes have been made to the original plan. The original date has moved around some, but as of right now departure will be at 0700 on the 31st of March.

Some YVR spotters were excited that the aircraft was going to be flown to YVR, but that has been scrubbed. The flight will fly direct to YUL where pre-service inspections will be performed for about a week before the aircraft starts pax services.

He said if anybody takes pictures he wants some copies!!!

Hope this helps.

I have been watching the production list and today from FlightAware a 200ER took what appeared to be it's first flight as BOE11.
If the list sequence is followed then there will be two -300ER's ( 1 ea SIN and EK) then Air Canada's. So the actual first flight is probably about 2-weeks away.

Wow I can not wait to see pictures of the plane in the air. Two questions though, when does AC's 2nd 777 arrive and how much flying does this bird do in Seattle before being ready to be delivered.


Keep the shinny side up!

It is sixth on the line after the first , so that will put it about a month later. I would say about 6 to 8 hours. BOE11 today was in the air 1hr 44mins.

Well guys, I ran into the guy in charge of the program a couple hours after my post. He says March 31st is as "firm" as they get. This date I suppose due to the dynamics of manufacturing has floated around quite a bit. The date was as early as March 3rd, then March 14, March 29 and now the 31st. They were in the airplane last week, the cockpit is almost done and the cabin still has aways to go.

March 31st, 0700, Direct YUL.

I didn't mean this to be a know-it-all thing and if you guys know better so be it. There were some people that wanted to know when the aircraft was to take off for it's home and I tried to find out for ya. I'll be seeing him again in the coming weeks and I'll ask him if anything changes.

Cheers

Sixty.

seems to be some confusion here...you are talking about the first flight after delivery, I think others thought you meant first flight for the airframe.

Click Happy. No, I meant the delivery flight. You're right, I would suppose it would fly at least a couple of times prior to release.

In fact you'd likely know better than I. I'm not sure if the flight back to the buyer is actually called the delivery flight, or is the delivery flight the one where they take off, go off shore and complete all the sales paperwork.

But as you said, that info I was talking about is the one where AC actually flies the bird to it's new home. It will be an exciting time for sure.

YYZFlyer:

April 4 might be a little close for 856 777 service. Once the a/c gets to YUL it will undergo acceptance checks and a "once over" by maintenance. For the EMJs it was five days, this might be a little longer of course. Either way it will be close!! Hope you're lucky.

RobK.

The only reason I would think that Boeing11 was an airplane flying already (for test or show purposes) is that the first 3 777s that AC are to receive are -300s. If the first airplane AC is getting is C-FITL, a -300, which is delivered March 31st, why would a -200LR being flying already unless boeing has had it in the air flying around already for show or test purposes.

In your earlier post you said it was a -200LR which led me to think AC was getting a "demo" airplane sort of like PIA.

I doubt ACs first AC, C-FITL has flown yet since it's cockpit wasn't finished as of last week.

SixtySeven, I think you have confused two similar acronyms. A/C is short for aircraft. AC is the designator for Air Canada. The slash (/) makes all the difference.

Thanks for coming to the rescue 3point coz I had no idea what 67 was on about! I now understand why though. It doesn't actually say A/C, it says AIC which is the official code for Air India. BOE011 is VT-ALA and nothing to do with Air Canada.
