The 757 is a narrow body medium range twin engined airliner built by Boeing and was developed from the wide-body 767, in fact the cockpits of the aircraft are the same with pilots allowed to fly both types of aircraft on a common type rating.
The initial design started in 1978 as the 7N7 with two variants, the -100 with 160 seats and the -200 with 180 seats. The design was launched in 1979 with orders from Eastern Air Lines and British Airways, as the design developed, it drew on the design of the 767.
The 757 was designed to replace the Boeing 727-300 with a design goal of a 20% reduction in fuel consumption. The 757's high power to weight ratio allowed it to operate from short runways.
The initial aircraft were powered by the Rolls Royce RB211-535C, although the Pratt & Whitney subsequently offered the PW2037 and General Electric CF6-32 but this engine was withdrawn due to lack of demand.
Developing both the 757 & 767 together reduced the costs and risk allowing rapid development of two aircraft.
The prototype first flew on 19th February 1982, the initial flight was affected by an engine stall, but the crew managed to relight the engine and the flight continued. The first commercial flight was carried out by Eastern on 1st January 1983 on the Atlanta - Tampa route. On introduction the 757 consumed 40-42% less fuel than the 707 & 727's it replaced.
The original version of the aircraft was the 757-200 certified for a maximum of 239 passengers. Some aircraft have been fitted with winglets, these are known as 757-200W's Although designed for short to medium routes, the 757 has been subsequently used on thin long haul routes.
The -300 is a stretched version of the aircraft with the capability of carrying a maximum of 295 passengers.

The original version of the aircraft, this aircraft is 47.3m (155ft 3in) long.
Originally powered by the RB211-535C but was upgraded to the -535E4 in later aircraft and the PW2037 to the PW2040.
The aircraft also gained ETOPS (Extended Twin Engine Operations) approval, allowing it to operate over oceanic routes. The range with full payload is 3,850nm (7,130km).
The -200M is a convertible version capable of carrying cargo and passengers on the main deck, it has a cargo door in the front left of the fuselage.
Only one copy of the aircraft was built for Nepal Airlines. The engine was powered by the RB211-535E4 engines.
The -200PF is the cargo version of the aircraft - the PF stands for Package Freighter and was initially designed for UPS and can carry 15 ULD containers.
the aircraft has a large cargo door on the forward port side of the fuselage, there is also a crew door forward of the cargo door but all other doors and windows are omitted.
The -300 is the stretched version of the aircraft and is the longest single-aisle aircraft ever built. It shares the basic design of the -300.
The -300 has a higher MTOW than the -200 and a maximum range of 3,395nm (6,290 km).
The standard A0 print size is 841mm wide by 1189mm high (33.1" x 46.8") - except for Concorde which is 1189mm wide by 841mm high (46.8" x 33.1") and is printed on 220gsm matt paper. Other media is available.
The A1 size is 594mm wide by 841mm high (23.4" x 33.1"). - and is printed on 170gsm matt paper.
Cockpit Revolution has been developing cockpit posters for the last 5 years and are drawn by a Flight Engineer using his expertise in aircraft engineering and training.
All the posters are based upon the manufacturers documentation, visits to the aircraft and simulators and photographs.
The posters are drawn to no specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position. If you require a specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position then please contact us.
