The BOEING 787 DREAMLINER is an American long-haul , mid-size widebody , twin-engine jet airliner made by Boeing
Boeing
Commercial Airplanes . Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations. It is the first airliner with an airframe constructed primarily of composite materials . The 787 was designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the Boeing 767
Boeing 767
, which it was intended to replace. The 787 Dreamliner's distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, raked wingtips , and noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles . It shares a common type rating with the larger Boeing 777
Boeing 777
to allow qualified pilots to operate both models. The aircraft's initial designation was the 7E7, prior to its renaming in January 2005. The first 787 was unveiled in a roll-out ceremony on July 8, 2007 at Boeing's Everett factory

Wide-body Aircraft
A WIDE-BODY AIRCRAFT is a jet airliner having a fuselage wide enough to accommodate two passenger aisles , also known as TWIN-AISLE aircraft, with seven or more seats abreast. The typical fuselage diameter is 5 to 6 m (16 to 20 ft). In the typical wide-body economy cabin, passengers are seated seven to ten abreast, allowing a total capacity of 200 to 850 passengers. The largest wide-body aircraft are over 6 m (20 ft) wide, and can accommodate up to eleven passengers abreast in high-density configurations. By comparison, a typical narrow-body airliner has a diameter of 3 to 4 m (10 to 13 ft), with a single aisle, and seats between two and six people abreast. Wide-body aircraft were originally designed for a combination of efficiency and passenger comfort and to increase the amount of cargo space. However, airlines quickly gave in to economic factors, and reduced the extra passenger space in order to maximize revenue and profits

Twinjet
A TWINJET or TWIN-ENGINE JET is a jet aircraft powered by two engines . Such configuration of an aircraft is the most popular today for commercial airliners, for fighters , and many other kinds, because while offering safety from a single engine failure, it is also acceptably fuel-efficient. CONTENTS * 1 Aircraft configurations * 2 History * 3 Efficiency * 4 ETOPS * 4.1 Introduction to transoceanic flights * 5 Other advantages * 6 See also * 7 References * 8 External links AIRCRAFT CONFIGURATIONSAs of today, there are three most common configurations of twinjet aircraft. The first has a podded engine usually mounted beneath, or occasionally above or within, each wing, usually for standard narrow-body and wide-body airliners. The second has one engine mounted on each side of the rear fuselage, close to its empennage , which is common among most business jets

Jet Airliner
A JET AIRLINER (or JETLINER) is an airliner powered by jet engines (passenger jet aircraft ). Airliners usually have two or four jet engines; three-engined designs were popular in the 1970s but are less common today. Most airliners today are powered by jet engines, because they are capable of safely operating at high speeds and generate sufficient thrust to power large-capacity aircraft. The first jetliners, introduced in the 1950s, used the simpler turbojet engine; these were quickly supplanted by designs using turbofans , which are quieter and more fuel-efficient. Airliners are commonly classified as either the generally long-haul widebody aircraft, or narrow-body aircraft

Composite Material
A COMPOSITE MATERIAL (also called a COMPOSITION MATERIAL or shortened to COMPOSITE, which is the common name) is a material made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components. The individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. The new material may be preferred for many reasons: common examples include materials which are stronger, lighter, or less expensive when compared to traditional materials. More recently, researchers have also begun to actively include sensing, actuation, computation and communication into composites, which are known as Robotic Materials

Fuel Economy In Aircraft
Fuel economy is a measure of how much fuel an aircraft or a fleet of aircraft of mixed types needs to operate in relation to a service provided (i.e. number of passengers or ton of freight) and the distance between points of travel. It can be expressed in several ways, for example by the liters of fuel consumed per passenger per kilometer

Boeing 767
The BOEING 767 is a mid- to large-size, mid- to long-range , wide-body twin-engine jet airliner built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes . It was Boeing's first wide-body twinjet and its first airliner with a two-crew glass cockpit . The aircraft has two turbofan engines, a conventional tail , and, for reduced aerodynamic drag , a supercritical wing design. Designed as a smaller wide-body airliner than earlier aircraft such as the 747 , the 767 has seating capacity for 181 to 375 people, and a design range of 3,850 to 6,385 nautical miles (7,130 to 11,825 km), depending on variant. Development of the 767 occurred in tandem with a narrow-body twinjet, the 757 , resulting in shared design features which allow pilots to obtain a common type rating to operate both aircraft. The 767 is produced in three fuselage lengths. The original 767-200 entered service in 1982, followed by the 767-300 in 1986 and the 767-400ER, an extended-range (ER) variant, in 2000
