FAA Reviewing Boeing’s 787 Proposal

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reviewing a proposal from Boeing addressing 787 battery issues. Deputy transportation secretary John Porcari, FAA administrator Michael Huerta, and other FAA officials have met with senior executives from Boeing to discuss what the manufacturer believes is a potential solution. The FAA said it will analyse Boeing’s proposal closely. “The safety of the flying public is our top priority and we won’t allow the 787 to return to commercial service until we’re confident that any proposed solution has addressed the battery failure risks,” the FAA stated.
