Our speaker will be Peter Morton who was the Senior Project Engineer on the Boeing 757 Flight Deck.
Twenty-four years ago, the 757 and 767 were qualified with a common pilot type rating, a remarkable first-ever industry achievement, the more audacious because it applied to aircraft with different type certificates, one a standard body, the other a wide body.
The circumstances that surrounded this achievement were unlikely; perhaps approaching a political version of Boeing engineering‘s definition of “extremely improbable.”
The Boeing technical preparation, inspired innovations, leadership, and personalities that brought about the event overcame challenges to technologies, costs and schedule, internal and external politics, labor relations on a national scale, and manufacturing traditions.
Peter Morton was the Senior Project Engineer on the 757 Flight Deck. He has taken a deep dive into memorabilia on the subject, pulling together a lively story of this implausible accomplishment by the Boeing Company in the late 1970’s.
