The Boeing 777-200 is the first airliner in the family of wide-body, twin-engine Boeing 777 or Triple Seven (T7) aircraft. The aircraft is designed for medium-haul airlines.

At the end of 1989 of the year, Boeing Commercial Airplanes began to design an extended version of the Boeing 767 aircraft with the wing span increased to 63,73 meters. When designing, the new aircraft received advanced technologies at that time, as well as a new design. In mid-October, 1990, the project received the designation Boeing 777, which indicated the appearance of a new family. And the first modification was designated as 777-200.

During the construction of the Boeing 777-200, to facilitate the construction of the airframe, the use of composite materials, which occupy about 10 percent of the weight of the whole structure, was widely used.

On the new airliner, it was installed powerful turbojet engines with high bypass ratio, Pratt & Whitney PW4074 with each thrust of 329 kN. Subsequently, the aircraft Boeing 777-200 used engines General Electric GE90-75Bs with traction motors and 334 kN Rolls-Royce Trent 875s with a similar thrust.

The Boeing 777-200, became the first passenger aircraft of the Boeing company, with an installed electrical remote control system, also known as Fly-by-wire (FBW). The aircraft used avionics manufactured by Honeywell, which complies with the advanced standard for computer data bus used in ARINC 629 avionics. To display all the necessary information about the flight and the state of the onboard systems, six multifunctional TFT displays are used. The Boeing 777-200 was equipped with a system for preventing airborne collisions in the air - TCAS (Traffic alert and Collision Avoidance System). Today, according to ICAO standards, TCAS equipment should be installed on all aircraft designed for the transportation of more 19 passengers.

The first flight of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft, took place 12 June 1994 of the year. FAA and JAA certifications, airliners received 19 on April 1995 of the year. The first operator of the aircraft was the airlineUnited Airlines"Which received its first Triple Seven 15 May 1995 years.

Also, the Boeing 777-200ER has become one of the best-selling twin-engine jet, passenger aircraft in the world. On the 2010 year, 415 units of this modification were delivered to more than thirty airlines.

The main areas of Boeing 777-200 today are "London - New York", "Denver - Honolulu", "Tokyo - San Francisco". And the main directions of Boeing 777-200ER are “London - Los Angeles”, “Tokyo - Sydney”, “Chicago - Seoul”.

The main competitor for the Boeing 777-200 is a European airliner Airbus A330-300.
