The Boeing 737 Technical Site is now available as a printed book or an ebook

This book takes you right from the original concept that lead Boeing to design the 737 through its 40 year evolution, in language that is easily understood. It looks at each system in turn, supported by over 500 high resolution photographs, diagrams and schematics, placing each system component in context. It collates information from many different sources and combines over 15 years of the authors own flying experiences to lead the reader through the 737 from radome to tail-cone. The book goes beyond the flight deck on a grand tour of the worlds' most prolific airliner in a way that is as relevant to the type rating candidate as it is to a company Fleet Technical Captain. To complete the picture, the book also contains Pilots notes, a detailed guide to airtesting and the accident history of the type, which serve to make this book the most practical and comprehensive technical guide to the 737 available today.

Version Information

The standard version is a softback, spiral bound, 8.5" x 11" book containing 362 pages in a choice of either full colour or black & white pages.

By popular demand a smaller, lighter, spiral bound, 6" x 9" pocket version has been produced to fit easily into your flight case. Both the standard and pocket versions are coil-bound for ease of use.

There is also a full colour hardback version for those who really appreciate their aircraft.

New: Following recent price increases by the publishers, I have introduced two new versions which offer the book at the lowest possible price. Both versions are black and white and perfect bound (not spiral bound). The standard budget version is 8.5" x 11" and the pocket budget version is 6" x 9". Again the contents are identical but postage costs will be significantly less if you order the US version from the US and the Euro version from Europe. For other parts of the world I suggest you try ordering both versions and only commit to the least expensive one!

All versions have identical content, far surpassing that found on the website, although the number of pages vary due to formatting differences.

So, after ten years work, the website and all the supporting information that went into its' creation, is now available in print. If you have found the website useful but would like the bigger picture, follow the links below to buy the book.
