esign and development
Background
Prompted by the modern Airbus A320, which incorporates ground-breakingtechnologies such as fly-by-wire and side-stick controls, Boeing in 1991 initiateddevelopment of an updated series of aircraft.After working with potential customers,the 737 Next Generation (NG) program was announced on November 17, 1993.The737NG encompasses the -600, -700, -800 and -900, and is to date the mostsignificant upgrade of the airframe. The performance of the 737NG is essentially thatof a new airplane, but important commonality is retained from previous 737. The wingwas modified, increasing its area by 25% and span by 16 ft (4.88 m), which increasedthe total fuel capacity by 30%. New quieter more fuel-efficient CFM56-7B engineswere used.These improvements combine to increase the 737's range by 900 nmi,permitting transcontinental service. A flight test program was operated by 10 aircraft;3 -600s, 4 -700s, and 3 -800s.
