Boeing 737-600

The Boeing 737-600 is the last and least spacious in the new subfamily of 737 aircraft, the first of which are 737-700 and 737-800. Officially, its development began in March 1995. Because it is an improved version of the 737-500, for some time it was designated 737-500X.

The first aircraft was received by the Scandinavian airline SAS. The aircraft uses the EFIS digital avionics system of the American company “Honeywell” with six flat-panel liquid crystal displays. The architecture of the complex is the same as on the Boeing 777. There is the possibility of installing a HUD collimator indicator on the windshield. It is in mass production.
