FAA lifts 787 Dreamliner grounding

See also

The FAA announced a directive Thursday requiring the battery systems aboard the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” to be improved and it would then lift the grounding of all 787s in the US. The planes have been grounded since January due to battery system problems. Once all improvements have been made, the Dreamliner will fly again.

The battery systems were believed to have caused fires in two Japanese owned aircraft. Increased pressure was put on Boeing to fix the problem on all US owned 787s. United Airlines is currently the only US carrier with 787s in it’s fleet.

The FAA approved a new battery system last week. Boeing estimates that all systems on US airlines will be improved before the end of May.
