Boeing Selects iPad-like Touch Screens for 777X Cockpit


Future Boeing 777X airline pilots that will be able to interact with their flight information displays in the same way that they use their smart phones and tablets.


Boeing has decided to integrate a multi-touch interface on the flight deck of the re-engined widebody due to enter service in 2020, replacing a touch-pad based cursor control device (CCDs) mounted on the aisle-stand of the original 777, says Bob Feldmann, vice-president and general manager of the 777X programme.


The decision was made so recently that Boeing is not yet able to announce the supplier, as the contract had not been signed as of mid-June, Feldmann says.


The new technology will be integrated as Boeing transitions from a standard layout of six displays in the 777 cockpit to the 787’s five-display format in the 777X.
