Reportedly, the Federal Aviation Administration has issued directions that its regulators and not Boeing (BA) employees, would inspect specific 787 Dreamliners before they resume operations. Boeing had been responsible for the basic final safety checks needed to issue an airworthiness certificate before delivery of the aircraft. However, FAA has now issued that it would now be responsible for the checks for four 787 Dreamlines before operations resume.
“The FAA is taking a number of corrective actions to address Boeing 787 production issues. One of the actions is retaining the authority to issue airworthiness certificates for four 787 aircraft. The FAA can retain the authority to issue airworthiness certificates for additional 787 aircraft if we see the need.” stated the FAA.
As per data, Boeing has more than 80 787 Dreamliners awaiting delivery. United Airlines is due to receive two of them in late March or early April. Boeing stopped deliveries in October as it was dealing with quality control issues including excessive gaps in the vertical tail fin causing strain on the structure of the plane and shims that were the incorrect size.
