2014 Boeing BBJ3
The BBJ3 has been developed from the 737-900ER airframe design, which is capable of delivering better performance in terms of extended range, higher speed, lower noise levels and lower emissions over previous models in the Boeing 737 range.
BBJ3 is equipped with a new long-range fuel system, which can have up to eight auxiliary fuel tanks holding maximum of 41,511 of fuel. The majority of the material used in the jet's body is aluminum and around 7% is composite. The wings have blended winglets, which are supplied by Aviation Partners Boeing (APB). These blended winglets reduce block fuel burn, noise level and engine maintenance costs, and increase fuel mileage, range and altitude capability.
Boeing has started building to Revision "U". Only small technical changes and upgrades that are not added to the price of the aircraft. Also, there is a 2% performance improvement package currently being tested that will be incorporated on this airplane. That package includes a new CFM56 engine (7BE) being tested on a 737 test airplane that incorporates airframe modifications to reduce
drag. Those changes and the enhanced engine are part of the 737 Performance Improvement Package that will enter production starting in mid-2011. The test airplane has flown multiple flights and will undergo further testing over the next few months.
The flight deck incorporates similar features to the
Boeing 737-900ER. It accommodates two crew including (pilot and co-pilot). The flight deck features a new
BBJ3 is equipped with a future air navigation system (FANS), which allows uninterrupted communication
between flight crews and air-traffic controllers. The FANS is available with NavLink (Teledyne) and Rockwell
systems. The system brings a wide range of benefits to the owners including more direct route options,
shortening flight times and fuel savings.
The aircraft is equipped with the Class 3 electronic flight bag (EFB). The EFB integrates hardware, software, data and services.
