New 787 Battery Undergoing Certification

Earlier this week it was announced that Boeing had received FAA approval to test a new battery for its 787 aircraft. According to Boeing chief engineer Mike Sinnett the certification process is approximately one-third complete and the 787 could be cleared to fly in a matter of weeks. Both the FAA and the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau are investigating the problems attributed to the previous battery and both will need to sign off before the 787 is again certified to fly in their respective countries.
