The 737-MAX Flightdeck

The big difference is the 4 new 15.1 inch displays. In the central 4 inch gap between display 3 & 4 has been squeezed a smaller gear lever along with a lock override button, alternate nosewheel steering selector, gear indication lights and placard speeds. The ISFD is above the gear panel. The flap position indicator is now part of the electronic displays. The autobrake and MFD selectors and brake pressure gauge have moved down to the Forward Aisle Stand (in between the FMCs). The PFD/MFD transfer switches are on the lighting panels in front of the control column.

The Forward Aisle Stand has been extensively changed as the lower DU on the NG has now been integrated into the large format displays (follow this link for more details).

The overhead panel is very similar to the NG. Differences include:

Some of the centre instrument panel differences are shown here.

Some of the new features of the MAX (and NGs from l/n 5605) throttle quadrant are:

  • The engine start levers have had their first change since the 707. They are now lever-rock toggles switches. They have moved to the left slightly and the lightplate has also been changed. Trivia point for you, the little white cross on the (any) lightplate shows the location of the earthing point behind it. Press it there if the lighting is intermittent or goes off.
  • The engine start levers (switches!) will now illuminate when the associated engine fire switch has illuminated.
  • The park brake light is now LED and smaller and has been dropped down by a couple of cm to give more room to operate the Engine 1 start lever/switch.
  • The parking brake lever has been reshaped.
  • The horn cutout button has moved from near the flap 30 detent to the right of the park brake light
  • The only difference between the MAX and any NG is that the stab trim cutout switches have slightly different functionality and are labelled PRI & B/U.

The MAX landing gear handle is a two-position handle (UP/DOWN). The center “OFF” position that removed hydraulic pressure from the actuators has been removed as the depressurization function is automated through a proximity switch system.
