Noise level in the real one

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

unfortunately after 9/11 it is normaly not possible to visit the front office of a 777 inflight and make an own experience of the noisyness of a flight deck in cruise.

But maybe some of you have some flight deck experience and could tell us how loud such a flight deck is? Is there anything that you can compare to it?

I think that it can not be too loud because i see many videos where pilots are without headset in cruise, unlike in the 737 or 747, where noice cancelling headsets are often worn through the whole flight.

Just want to set up my speaker volume to match the real thing.

From what I've seen, communication without headset is possible, but you need to speak louder than normal, but not shouting.

 

Best regards,

Robin.

The tech team who together have tens of thousands of hours of experience have confirmed the sound setup. :-)

It's somewhat quieter than the NG is (and we modeled this) but it's not like there's no noise. You have air blowing by a few feet from your head at 460+ TAS, there's never going to be a way to make that silent.

how about the outside noise? The real 777 (ge90) can be heard on startup up to 3 km away. Up close the ge90 startup can be felt as the air vibrates. nice to see that the moooing (cow sound) was also modeled: nice!
