I just want to know if a pilot can fly a 757 and a 767. For example in the morning fly with a 757, and in the afternoon fly back in a 767. Because I notice that the cockpits of this 2 planes are identical.

Yes I believe thats the way it works. Either that, or they don't need but maybe 15 minutes of training for the other  Smile

They have common cockpit qualifications. Can go from one to the other and back. No additional training needed.

At Continental if type rated on the 757/767, you fly the
757-200, 767-200,767-400 and soon the 757-300.

On the 737 fleet those pilots fly the -300,500,700,800 and soon the -900 series.

Its certainly not the safest idea, but it saves the company a fortune in pilots required, and our old independent union did nothing to stop it, maybe we'll have better luck with ALPA.

The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.

True. Actually, at Delta if you go to 767-400 school, you're actually going to 757/767-200/767-300/767-300ER ground school with an extra 6 days or so for -400 differences training.

We have three categories of 757/767's at Delta.

Domestic 767 flies the 757-200, 767-200, 767-300, 767-300ER

Domestic/International(Hawaii) 767-400 pilots only fly the 767-400

International 767 pilots only fly the 767-300ER unless coverage is needed domestically by agreement during some months I believe.

The 737 is even crazier.

The MCO 737-200 only flies the 737-200

The 73G only flies the EFIS 737-300's

The 73N only flies the 737-800's

The 737 category only flies the 737-200's and "round dial" 737-300's

Doug -

Have they combined the 767-400 with the 757/767 domestic category? When I was doing my internship in the spring, we had 4 distinct 767 categories...

767: Domestic category flying 757/762/763
764: Domestic category flying 767-400
7ER: International category flying 767-300ER
765: International category (Hawaii) flying 767-400

Is there any particular reason that those who fly the 767-400 only fly that particular plane and none of the others? Is there a significant difference between the 767-400 and the 767-300ER that causes a distinct seperation in training of the two aircrafts? Or is this just a Delta thing? Thanks.

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
