The 787 Dreamliner is the Newest Aircraft from Boeing. It's new features enhance the quality of flying, while it is slightly bigger than the current 767.

The 787-8 Dreamliner and 787-9 airplanes will carry 223-259 passengers in
tri-class configurations on routes of 8,500 and 8,300 nautical miles (15,700 and 15,400 kilometers) respectively. A third 787 family member, the 787-3 Dreamliner, will accommodate nearly 296 passengers in a two-class configuration and be optimized for routes of 3,500 nautical miles (6,500 km).

In addition to bringing big-jet ranges to mid-size airplanes, the 787 will provide airlines with unmatched fuel efficiency, resulting in exceptional environmental performance. The airplane will use 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than any similarly sized airplane. It will also travel at speeds similar to today's fastest wide bodies, Mach 0.85. Airlines will enjoy approximately 45 percent more cargo revenue capacity.

Passengers will also see improvements with the new airplane, from an interior environment with higher humidity to increased comfort and convenience.

There are also features like a new cabin lightning with projectors, that will project stars and more to the ceiling, aswell as new Turbulence systems that will detect Turbulences and steer against them.

Production will begin in 2006. First flight is expected in 2007 with certification, delivery and entry into service occurring in 2008.

ATPL = Airline Transport Pilot Lincense (airliner pilots license, or briefly ATP)

The ATPL license entitled you to a professional activity as captain or a copilot on all airplanes (also over 5.7 tons), the samples (types of aircraft), registered in the license, e.g. an Airbus A320 or Boeing 737. That means it that you can be used as pilot then in an aviation enterprise e.g. at Lufthansa or airlines like this one. These enterprises use airplanes which must be flown by the permission of the airplane ago in principle with two pilots (airliners). For these airplanes the ATP license is necessary. After this question is asked again and again, I would like to deal equal at the beginning, thus in order to anticipate it: the substantial difference to the CPL consists of the fact that you may fly airplanes, which are certified in the group of airworthiness "airliners" (so, this so-called "group of airworthiness" is quite important) with the ATPL also, besides applies still the condition specified above (two pilots).

Requirements and conditions:
- You must be at least 21 years old.
- The CPL and the IFR Rating must be present (the beginning of the training is already possible at the age of 19 years)
- alternatively it is also possible to do a continuous training without previous knowledge (inito)
- knowledge of the english language
- (in addition, the minimum age is handled differently by the flight schools, generally it is 21 years, as specified above, but it may also be possible that a higher minimum age applies.)
- You need a FAA medical, class 1
and a valid commercial pilot license(CPL)
- In addition you need a minimum flying time of 1.500 hours at the time of the ATPL examination, of it at least: 500 flying hours cross-country flight, 100 hours of night flight and 75 hours of "simulated" or genuine flight in clouds.
- and you have to be holder of an AZF
- 400 hours theoretical instruction in the subjects:

Air law, air traffic and air traffic control regulations
general navigation
radio navigation
flight planning
flight performance, weight and balance
avionics and instruments
the behavior in special flying situations
I got my ATPL! Amazing!
I can fly a 737 now!

Very Famous EMO Website for playing Microsoft Games online (owned by MSN), ruled by a 13 year old kid called "Zmaster".

Bad Attempt and Rip-off from Airbus to beat the new Boeing 787, looks like a clone between A330 and 787, and is released few years after the 787. (It even uses same Engines like the 787!)
