767/757 Cockpit Differences

Fri Sep 20, 2002 6:03 am

Hi all,
Is there any difference between the 752 and 762/3 cockpit? I might be wrong, but dont pilots share a type rating on both aircraft? Are the flight decks exactly the same?

Also with regards to Continental's 762s and Hawaiian's 763s, I believe Continental aircraft have the similar 777 flightdeck, are Hawaiian's 767s equipped the same way?

Thanks for everyone's help in advance.

Matt

One difference is that one steps up to enter the 767's flightdeck and steps down to enter the 757's flightdeck...

With the exception of a few switches on the aft center console, Continental's 762s and 752s have completely identical cockpits. The 753 has some slight differences in a few switch panels, but their locations are the same as the 752/762.

CAL's 767-400s (like all 764s) have the 777-style layout. They all have a common type rating.

There are slight differences throughout the flight decks, it really depends on the operator. The only major difference I can think of, besides the already mentioned aft pedistal cargo fire switches/ lights, is the hydraulics panel on the lower left overhead.

An interesting note, when I was attending a 757 fam class, there was a cockpit mock up of a 752 on one wall and a 763 on the other. No one, including me, noticed the differences between the two until the instructor pointed them out.

No, they don't.
The B767-200s have a panel for Fuel Jettison. B757s don't. The B7672 has a very different maintenance panel (P61) than the B757. The Hydraulic control panel is a little different. Anti-Ice panel is different to allow an added system.
There are a couple more if I really think hard, but I'm hungry!!

I keep tripping on those damn steps! It's really embarrassing when I visit the cockpit and try to act all professional and then take a header into the cockpit. I also manage to hit my head on the overhead panel, which also adds to my embarassment.

Neil, Boeing designed the cockpit door so you wouldn't embarrass yourself. Pull the door open = gives you time to see the step down. Push the door and your foot hits the step up before you trip.  Big thumbs up

Hawaiian's 763's (and CO's 762's) have the original style cockpits. The only 767's with the 777 style displays are the 767-400's. There hasn't been any aircraft of the -200 or -300 series fitted (or retrofitted) with the new cockpit.
