About AERO

Welcome to AERO magazine! I hope you enjoy this source of supplemental technical information about Boeing- and Douglas-designed airplanes.

The articles you see here are full reprints of the articles in the printed version of the magazine. For ease of navigation we have used framesets. If you wish to print the complete text of an article, simply click on the VIEW/PRINT FULL TEXT link on the left side of every page, and select Print from the menu bar.

By posting AERO to the World Wide Web each quarter, we hope to reach many more readers than is possible with the printed magazine. We send that version primarily to operators of Boeing and Douglas airplanes.*

In the interest of helping AERO to remain an effective communication tool, we welcome your comments on the articles or the Web site itself. I look forward to hearing from you.

AERO magazine is published quarterly by Boeing Commercial Airplanes and is distributed at no cost to operators of Boeing commercial airplanes. AERO provides operators with supplemental technical information to promote continuous safety and efficiency in their daily fleet operations. -- The Boeing Company supports operators during the life of each Boeing commercial airplane. Support includes stationing Field Service representatives in more than 63 countries; furnishing spare parts and engineering support; training flight crews and maintenance personnel; and providing operations and maintenance publications. -- Boeing continuously communicates with operators through such vehicles as technical meetings, service letters, and service bulletins. This assists operators in addressing regulatory requirements and Air Transport Association specifications. -- Information published in AERO magazine is intended to be accurate and authoritative. However, no material should be considered FAA-approved unless specifically stated. Airline personnel are advised that their company's policy may differ from or conflict with information in this publication. Customer airlines may republish articles from AERO without permission if for distribution only within their own organizations. They thereby assume responsibility for the current accuracy of the republished material. All others must obtain written permission from Boeing before reprinting any AERO article.

In AERO No. 4, the artwork on figure 1 (top of page 6) and figure 4 (bottom of page 7) and their text references were inadvertently reversed. In addition, figure 4 should have been labeled "Flight Director." We regret the errors.
