787 still grounded.

Scheduled is cancelled, Hmmmmm.

Why would Boeing cancel a test flight?

Japan’s All Nippon Airways, Boeing’s (BA) largest Dreamliner customer, reportedly plans to start training pilots on the 787 this month under the assumption the fleet will return to service in June.

ANA, which has cancelled more than 3,600 flights through the end of May because of the 787 problem, will put its roughly 200 Dreamliner pilots through "flight resumption simulator training" starting in mid-April, according to a report by Reuters.

Boeing has completed more than half of the tests required to certify the new battery system. While it has not given a clear indication as to when the Dreamliner will return to service, it has expressed confidence it will return soon.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration last month approved of Boeing’s 787 certification plan as part of its effort to return the fleet to flight status.

"Never fly again" ???

Boeing said its flight test team flew a 787 Dreamliner Monday to Moses Lake.

This was not the demonstration flight for FAA certification of the battery fix. That test is expected in a few days.

Nor was the flight intended to gather data on new power panel engineering, a test that was postponed from Saturday. Boeing spokesman Marc Birtel said the flight “addresses ongoing system upgrades to the airplane.”

A source familiar with the details said that includes an engine anti-ice system.

The jet took off at 11:19 a.m. in Everett, hugged the Washington and Oregon coastline flying southwards, then headed back on a northeasterly track and landed at Moses Lake at 1:30 p.m.

After a brief stop there, the jet returned to Everett shortly after 2 p.m.

787 Remains grounded.

Last test flight was cancelled.

It's not going well.

Time for a new design, NOT just a fix.

The JAPS will be using the 787 to fly cargo in order to instill confidence in the plane.

They sure trust Boeing and the FAA to test it and ensure it's safety.

How'd ya like to be a test pilot flying the 787 with cargo only. I'll bet they have chutes. OR maybe they will recruit some old kamakazi pilots for the mission?
