In this programme you will join Captain Graeme Thomson, Cathay Pacific Airways fleet manager B777, for an insight into this 21st century airliner.
To start with, you’ll join Graeme in the cockpit about 1 hour out of Auckland, New Zealand where you will witness a rare display: an approach in the landing configuration, followed by a Go-Around, a high speed low level (approx. 500 feet) fly past followed by a landing. We then take off from Auckland, destination: Singapore.
As the aircraft cruises to its destination we’ll take you behind the scenes and into the B777 simulator in Hong Kong. This gives Graeme the opportunity to give you a guided tour of the all new LCD equipped flight deck where you’ll learn about Fly-by-Wire (FBW), Electronic Check List, Cursor Control Device (CCD) and Multi Functional Display (MFD). We also show you Thrust Asymmetry Compensation (TAC) including a failure of an engine on take-off and how TAC helps the pilot.
Finally we’ll then rejoin the B777 for the landing at Singapore. This is a ‘must-see’ for anyone interested in this 21st century jet.
