US regulator approves Boeing 787 flight over ocean

: Saturday, May 31 - 2014 @ 00:48

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given Boeing Co the go-ahead to for its B787 to fly far over the ocean, up to 5 1/2 hours away from the nearest emergency landing site, the Associated Press has reported. The move comes while another branch of the government, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), is still investigating the cause of a January 2013 battery fire aboard a B787 parked at the gate in Boston. Last week, the NTSB criticised the FAA’s process used to certify the new jet’s batteries in 2007 and also recommended that the FAA needs to look outside the aviation industry for technical advice.
