The Boeing 757 is a mid-size,
narrow-body twin-engined jet airliner that was designed and built by
Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is Boeing's largest single-aisle
passenger aircraft and was produced from 1981 to 2004. The aircraft
has a two-crew member glass cockpit, turbofan engines of sufficient
power to allow takeoffs from relatively short runways and higher
altitudes, a conventional tail and, for reduced aerodynamic drag, a
supercritical wing design. Intended to replace the smaller
three-engined 727 on short and medium routes, the 757 can carry
between 200 to 295 passengers for a maximum of 3,150 to 4,100
nautical miles depending on variant. The 757 was designed
concurrently with a wide-body twinjet, the 767 and, owing to shared
features, pilots can obtain a common type rating that allows them to
operate both aircraft.
