Boeing 737 Next Generation
The Boeing 737 Next Generation, commonly abbreviated as Boeing 737NG, is the namegiven to the -600/-700/-800/-900 series of the Boeing 737 after the introduction of the -300/-400/-500 Classic series. They are short-to medium-range, narrow-body jet airliners.Produced since 1996 by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, 3,528 737NG aircraft have beendelivered as of January 2011.
esign and development
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.
esign effort
In terms of the passenger cabin, the new style interior on the 737 Next Generationimproved on the previous style interior used on the Boeing 757-200 and the Boeing 737Classic by incorporating select features of the 777-style interior, most noticeably larger,more rounded overhead bins and curved ceiling panels. The interior of the 737 NextGeneration also became the standard interior on the Boeing 757-300.
Production and testing
The first NG to roll out was a -700, on
ecember 8, 1996. This aircraft, the 2,843rd 737 built,first flew on February 9, 1997 with pilots Mike Hewett and Ken Higgins. The prototype -800rolled out on June 30, 1997 and first flew on July 31, 1997, piloted by Jim McRoberts andagain by Hewett. The smallest of the new variants, the -600 series, is identical in size to the -500 and was the last 737NG, launching in
