B787 Pilot Testimonials

"I really enjoyed the past 3 years working for Rishworth (Norwegian Longhaul). I have been very impressed by Rishworth from day one and really appreciate all your support during my contract."

- G. King, Relief Captain (B787), Norwegian

​"As Vietnam Airlines grows its wide-body fleets, there will be many opportunities for A320 Captains to make the move to B787 or A350 Fleets. There is a great expatriate pilot community in Vietnam, especially in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. I feel at home."

- H. Perez, Captain (B787), Vietnam Airlines

About the Boeing 787

The B787 Dreamliner is a mid-size widebody, twin-engine jet airliner with its variants seating between 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations. The longest-range B787 variant can fly 14,800 to 15,700 kilometres (9,200 to 9,800 miles or 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles).

For pilots looking to transition to the Boeing 787 aircraft, this fleet presents an excellent career opportunity. With over 670 B787’s already delivered, and a further 1300 on order, the B787 is an established and fast-growing fleet, likely to be operated by major airlines well into the future. The B787 shares a type rating with the B777, creating excellent transition opportunities for pilots.

The B787 commenced commercial service in 2011 and is the most fuel-efficient airliner in history with composite materials being the primary material in the construction of the aircraft’s fuselage, wings and other airframe components. The B787 was designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the Boeing 767, which it was intended to replace. The B787 Dreamliner's distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, swept wingtips, and noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles.

The first B787 was launched in 2007 in a ceremony at Boeing's Everett factory in Washington with the airliner's maiden flight taking place in 2009. Numerous suppliers worldwide have been involved in a large-scale collaboration for the development and production of this aircraft.
