Following the grounding of the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” due to electrical issues earlier this year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) allowed Boeing and it’s subcontractors to determine and conduct how the problem should be resolved and tested for safety. The findings leave many concerned about safety and the risks to passengers of being involved in a Commercial Aviation Accident.
In January, the lithium ion batteries in two of the 787s caught fire, prompting officials to ground the fleet of aircraft until a solution could be implemented and tested for safety. These problems came after the FAA repeatedly ignored prompts to raise the standards of testing on the batteries.
In early 2008, the government changed the safety standards for pre-approval testing of aircraft battery systems. ABC News explains the FAA failed to hold the Boeing 787 to these new standards though. In November of the same year, a fire broke out aboard one of the planes after the battery system was overcharged.
The FAA allowed Boeing to again modify and test the batteries for safety, which have been approved as safe.
The battery system’s approval and subsequent failure has many questioning whether the Boeing’s involvement in testing is a conflict of interest.
