Boeing Asks FAA for Permission to Hold Dreamliner Test Flights

Boeing has asked the Federal Aviation Administration for permission to conduct test flights of their 787 Dreamliner.  All Dreamliners were grounded by the FAAtwo weeks ago, following battery problems on two of the planes, one of which caused a fire.  Boeing spokesperson Marc Birtel said the company submitted their request and it is currently under consideration by the FAA.  The move indicates that Boeing has made progress in resolving the problem with the batteries.


According to an official with the FAA, who asked not to be named because the information has not yet gone public, the FAA is taking the request into consideration.  This is good news because regulators around the world followed the example of the FAA in grounding the Dreamliners.  The Boeing test would be for a potential fix of the battery problem.  However, passenger flights on the Dreamliner are still weeks, maybe months in the future.
