Overview

Since its first flight on 15 December 2009, the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” has been the most sophisticated airliner in the world. It uses many advanced new technologies to offer unprecedented levels of performance with minimal impact on the environment. Flying the Boeing 787 gives a pilot's eye view of what it is like to fly this remarkable machine. It takes the reader on a trip from Tokyo to Los Angeles as the flight crew sees it, from pre-flight planning, through all the phases of the flight to shut-down at the parking stand many thousands of miles from the departure point. Lavishly illustrated with specially taken photographs of the B787's controls and instruments, this book will be of interest not just to commercial pilots, but to all aviation enthusiasts: it gives an insight into a world normally hidden from the flying public, at the technical and operational cutting edge of commercial flying.
