Boeing 737-800

In September 1994, Boeing began designing the Boeing 737-800 (formerly 737-400X), the second in the new subfamily of 737 aircraft. In terms of passenger capacity, it corresponds to the 737-400 aircraft. In its design, all those technical solutions are used that are used on the original version 737-700. At the end of April 1997, Boeing first announced the design of the 737-900X, which is a 737-800 extended by 2.8 m.

The aircraft is designed to carry 180-200 passengers (in the cabin of two classes). As a power plant, the use of two turbofan engines CFM56-7B with a thrust of 12950 kgf each is provided. 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.

Serial production began in 1998. The price of the aircraft is 48-54 million dollars.
