Earlier this week, officials with aircraft manufacturer, Boeing, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that the company’s new 787 Dreamliner is now safe for flight and poses little risk of a Commercial Aviation Accident.
The fleet of 50 aircraft had been grounded since January after several test flights in the United States and Japan resulted in the aircraft experiencing widespread equipment malfunctions. The most serious incidents occurred when the aircraft’s lithium-ion batteries shorted out and caught fire.
Months of testing and research identified the problem and a solution that added extra insulation and a covering to the batteries was implemented.
An article from USA Today points out the problems may not be totally resolved, though. A Japanese flight was cancelled earlier this week when an engine on one of the Dreamliner’s wouldn't start, and another flight was diverted after experiencing issues with the plane’s deicing system.
The incidents have left many lawmakers questioning whether stricter laws overseeing the safety and testing of the aviation industry are needed. Boeing officials assured legislators it was unnecessary, and added that the certification process is already quite “robust”.
The Aviation Accident Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy acknowledge the risks involved with flying, but are hopeful the changes made by Boeing are effective at keeping passengers safe.
