Learn the ‘Boeing Way’ with a Chuck’s Guide. The Boeing 727 is a midsized, narrow-body tri-engine jet aircraft built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes from the early 1960s to 1984. The 727 design was a compromise among United Airlines, American Airlines, and Eastern Air Lines; each of the three had developed requirements for a jet airliner to serve smaller cities with shorter runways and fewer passengers. This is an aircraft that required a crew of three: a pilot, a co-pilot and a flight engineer. This particular version displays a number of old technologies like the Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System (CIVA INS) and you will have to navigate with mostly VORs. Needless to say, this aircraft is a nice study-level simulation of an old school plane.
