Boeing Completes Certification Testing For 787 Li-ion Batteries

On line number 86, Boeing has completed a demonstration flight to certify that the passenger jet’s lithium-ion battery is now installed correctly (after prolonged confusion and short-term fixes).

The flight departed from Paine Field in Everett, Washington, at 10:39am Pacific time on Friday with a crew of 11 people on board, including two representatives from the FAA. The plane flew for 1 hour and 49 minutes. It landed back at Paine field at 12:28pm pacific.

The flight was to demonstrate that the plane is safe during both normal and abnormal flight conditions.

This is the final certification test flight for the 787 batteries.

Boeing will now analyze the data collected and submit the required materials to the FAA. Boeing expects to deliver all of the materials to the FAA in the coming days.
