EVA Air 777 and 787

Will EVA 777 pilots be flying the 787 as well due to it being a common type?

It is not a common type under the FAA and likely won't be under the Taiwan CAA.

I did not know that, seems you learn something every day.

How is that though if it is a common type in Europe, surely it has to be a common type under FAA as well.

I dont see how EASA can promote it as a common type but the FAA cannot.

All the 737's share the same TR under FAA, including MAX. Only a differences course is required, I think. 77/87 should be the same, otherwise where is the incentive to buy it...

Thats what I was saying and Boeing claims it is a common type. Im thinking it is a common type no matter where you are.

No they won't. They will be 2 separate fleets.

too many differences between the 777 and 787.

Norwegian 787

I know pilots at Norwegian and they get a 787/777 rating. They say the training on the 787 is even set up to follow some of the 777 differences. First hand knowledge from pilots actually doing the training at LGW.

Daddy Fantastic, even after you get an answer to your question you keep nagging with why, how come, or in some xyz airlines it's like that... If you show up with that attitude in Taiwan, Korea or Japan, you won't be too successful in your training and your life will be miserable. Good luck.

Seriously how sad are you? I asked a question where there are differences of opinion regarding the answer. Clearly you are one of those 'YES MEN' in Taiwan...just does as he is told and does not bother to question when something does not add up.

I bet you must be a real joy to fly with....

There are really no differences of opinion. Several people gave a concrete answer but you still keep pushing the issue. Who cares what Norwegian or whoever else does! Seems you don't get the point. Your opinion or how things are done elsewhere does not matter in many parts of Asia.

Show me 1 concrete answer with indisputable proof.

Under the FAA it is a common type as it is under EASA so please tell me where the concrete proof is. Im far more interested in what EASA and the FAA do and say than an Asian CAA considering EASA and the FAA are what that world aviation standards are based off.

Above posters have expressed opinions or thoughts, not undeniable proof. Clearly you need to learn the differences yet Im still baffled as to why you have an issue with somebody debating an answer, this is what the forum is for.

If I said to you the A320/A319 or A330/350 are not a common type, using your logic it must be true because a poster gave you concrete evidence by just saying that.

As stated before, you must be a REAL PLEASURE to fly with...

+886-2-2349-6280 Taiwan CAA. Talk to Mr. Lin. Ask directly to get concrete and indisputable proof.

Sure okay...call Boeing direct on +1 206-655-1131 and ask for the sales department in Seattle. Last time I checked they make the aeroplane and market and sell it as a common type which both EASA and FAA have endorsed and accepted...

Silly me...

The Taiwanese CAA have the final say on which aircraft have common type ratings on the Taiwanese register not Boeing or EASA or the FAA.

CAA of Taiwan has the final say

Under CAA of Taiwan, the 787 will not be under a common type rating!

It is a B registered aircraft so CAA has the final say!

Im not American and as far as 'YANKS' and credibility or safety or quality of pilot and training goes in aviation, they are light years ahead of Asia and all your Vietjets, Lionairs, Asiana's, Air Asia's (need I go on) which are effectively flying death traps!!

British Airways has 777 and 787 fleets but the crews are not interchangeable, even though for example, the 777 pilots have a 777/787 IR/PBN rating endorsement on their licenses. Only the BA 777/787 training pilots are fully qualified to fly both types.
