The 767 and 757 do not share a common type rating. The cockpits are not identical. The systems are quite different. I know he doesn't like airlines or airline pilots, but he should at least do some research before he turns in his work.
The B-767 and B-757 cockpits are essentially the same. A type rating is given for both airplanes when the check ride is completed. There are plenty of system differences in the two airplanes, but the FAA does not think that important enough to require separate type ratings. The big difference is that in the B-767, you must step UP into the cockpit to enter, the B-757 you must step down into the cockpit to enter. Hope this helps, Jim
Don't worry, he's retiring and will be dead soon. So you won't have to worry about reading his drivel any longer.
[QUOTE=Michaeld5;239]Don't worry, he's retiring and will be dead soon. So you won't have to worry about reading his drivel any longer.[/QUOTE] Collins has been "dying soon" for at least fifteen years. I know his experience flying a P210N (a very popular and ubiquitous airplane) is invaluable, but he sure dragged himself long past the "sell-by" date.
[QUOTE=skeetpilot;143]The 767 and 757 do not share a common type rating. [/QUOTE] Regardless of what you think of Collins...you are incorrect, and Les Abend would beg to differ. The 757/767 [b]IS[/b] a single type rating.
