If you havent checked out the newairplane.com website yet, its fascinating. What a cool fact to know that the new 747-8 digital glass cockpit comes with a Electronic Flight Bag, Vertical Situation Display (VSD), a new updated and faster Flight Management Computer FMC, Electronic Checklist, woooo, I like that one for sure. Electronic checklist, part of the paperwork reduction act I would say so   and last, but not least, the Airport Moving Map AMM, so cool to know that these advanced avionics are being installed on the newer next generation of Boeing airplanes. Does anyone know if the current 777 and Airbus models have identical capabilities such as the Electronic Checklist and Airport Moving Map? Whats so cool about the AMM is that pilots wont have to rely on approach plates anymore. Very interesting stuff, check it out for yourself at this website below.

I must admit to never having used an approach plate to navigate my way around the airport on the ground.



Me: (Lining up on final) I shall now select an aiming point. || Instructor: Well, I hope it's the runway...

777 has the electronic checklist. Not sure about moving map, but it's just software so it seems like it should be retrofitable. No idea how Airbus does it, but brake-to-vacate requires airport map data to work, so it's got to be in there somewhere.

Moving map says "do not use for navigation" all over the place; it's not certified to be used for navigation (and it doesn't tell you what the approach plates do anyway). It's for situational awareness only.

On the 777 the moving map is part of the EFB. The ECL is standard as stated before and can be customized by the airline.

Thats right, my mistake, its only a "moving map" not a approach plate map. Its only for the map of the airport and ground movements within.

Nice to know that the 777 has the electronic checklist.

Exactly. That said, the EFB (option on 777, standard on 787) *does* display approach plates (and pretty much all the other paper you might want to carry).

Probably more useful to the cargo outfits who fly to different locals each week

Flight deck looks amazing, a nice blend of 777 and 747

That's great that airlines will have the flexibility of a common pool of pilots for the 777, 787 and 748.
