Learning the 777

Posted by David Foster on October 12th, 2017 (All posts by David Foster)

Airline pilot Karlene Petitt is doing transition to the Boeing 777 and blogging about what she learns:

Aircraft overview

Structure and materials

Flight controls

Roll controls detail

Series will continue at Karlene’s blog

http://karlenepetitt.blogspot.com/
Did a quick look, interesting.

If you've any interest in the big birds and their pilots this is the blog.

Many years piloting a 747 for Northwest, now training for 777.

Here's a video with her views on the situation when the German co-pilot took control and flew the A/C into a mountain, an sure most of us remember it happening.
