  • Reading time: less than a minute

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight test fleet passed 1,000 hours of testing last week, approximately 40 percent through the test conditions required to certify the first version of the all-new composite jetliner.

“”More work remains but we are seeing excellent progress in flight test,”” said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 program for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “”Even more important than the hours we’ve logged are the test conditions we have completed. The team is being very efficient in getting the data we need.””

“”It’s also important to note that we are making solid progress on the ground testing required on the flight test fleet as well,”” Fancher said.

The 787 will make its first appearance outside the US at the forthcoming Farnborough Air Show in the UK.
