Boeing Schedules 787 Dreamliner First Flight For Q2 2009; First Delivery For Q1 2010
December 12, 2008 12:53 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 12 (Bernama) -- Boeing has announced an updated schedule for its all-new 787 Dreamliner programme that moves the commercial jet's first flight into the second quarter of 2009 and first delivery into the first quarter of 2010.

The new schedule reflects the impact of disruption caused by the recent Machinists' strike along with the requirement to replace certain fasteners in early production airplanes, it said in a statement.

"Our industry team has made progress with structural testing, systems hardware qualification and production, but we must adjust our schedule for these two unexpected disruptions," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Scott Carson.

Prior to the strike that halted much of the company's commercial airplane work from early September into November, the 787 was to make its first flight late in the fourth quarter of 2008, it said.

First delivery was slated for the third quarter of 2009, said Beoing.

"We're laser focused on what needs to be done to prepare for first flight," said Pat Shanahan, 787 programme vice-president.

"We will overcome this set of circumstances as we have others in the past, and we understand clearly what needs to be done moving forward."

Included in the preparations for first flight, Shanahan said, are finalising and incorporating remaining engineering changes and completing systems testing, qualifications and certification.

Boeing is evaluating the specific impact of this delay on customer delivery dates and will provide customers with updated schedules once completed.

The company is also determining any financial impact from this schedule change and will incorporate that into updated financial and overall airplane delivery guidance that will be released at a later date.

FACTBOX-Global supply chain for Boeing's 787

Dec 11 (Reuters) - Boeing Co pushed back the schedule for its troubled 787 Dreamliner for the fourth time on Thursday, making its new plane almost two years late and further angering its airline customers and risking cancellations.

The project has been hit by a series of problems with suppliers and shortages of parts, aggravated by a recent machinists' strike at Boeing.

The U.S. planemaker is pioneering a new way of making its latest carbon-composite aircraft, outsourcing most of the structure and components to companies around the world and assembling the pieces at its plant in Everett, Washington.

Here is a list of some of the biggest suppliers on the 787, where they are based and what they are producing.

UNITED STATES

General Electric (engines, electronics via Smiths UK)

Hamilton Sundstrand, a unit of United Technologies (internal power systems)

Vought Aircraft Industries, owned by Carlyle Group [CYL.UL] (aft fuselage)

Goodrich Corp (wheels, brakes)

Moog Inc (flight control actuators)

Hexcel (composite materials)

Alcoa (fasteners)

BRITAIN

Rolls-Royce (engines)

Ultra Electronics (wing ice protection)

GKN (composites)

FRANCE

Latecoere (passenger doors)

Messier-Dowty, part of Safran (landing gear structure)

Thales (in-flight entertainment system)

GERMANY

Diehl (cabin lighting)

ITALY

Alenia Aeronautica, part of Finmeccanica (horizontal stabilizer, central fuselage)

JAPAN

Toray Industries (carbon composite fiber)

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (wings)

Kawasaki Heavy Industries (forward fuselage)

Fuji Heavy Industries (centre wing box)

Bridgestone (tyres)

Matsushita (cabin services system)

Russia's S7 cancels Boeing 787 order

NEW YORK, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Russia's S7 has become the first airline to cancel a major contract for Boeing Co's (BA.N) 787 Dreamliner, as the country's airlines face their worst-ever financial crisis.

The order for 15 787s, due to be delivered in 2014, was worth about $2.4 billion at list prices. The cancellation is a blow for Boeing, whose new, lightweight jetliner has not yet left the ground and is about two years behind schedule.

S7, the main domestic rival to Russia's flag carrier Aeroflot (AFLT.MM), will seek to lease the planes instead, the company said on Thursday.

"S7 retains interest in using the Dreamliner and at the moment is looking into receiving the planes under a leasing scheme at an earlier date, for which it is in negotiations with several leasing companies," it said, without naming the leasing company.

Russia's airlines were hit hard by high oil prices and global economic turmoil, which left about a dozen of them unable to fly last year.

The resulting crisis prompted Russia's government to create a new state giant, Russian Airlines, to absorb crippled carriers.

Boeing, which has faced a series of production problems on the 787 and a two-month strike last year by its assembly workers, is expecting more cancellations from airlines this year as the demand for flights wanes.

The plane maker warned on Wednesday that an airline had canceled a 787 order, but did not say which.

Boeing shares were down 4.5 percent to $41.30 in late morning trade on the New York Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Melissa Akin and Bill Rigby; Editing by Tim Dobbyn)

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Moves to Flight Line for Testing
May 04, 2009 10:44 AM



KUALA LUMPUR, May 4 (Bernama) -- The Boeing 787 Dreamliner that will fly later this quarter has moved to the flight line.

Fuel testing - the first in the next phase of extensive checks the airplane must undergo - will begin in the next few days.

"We are making great progress, and moving ever-closer to first flight," Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 Dreamliner program, said in a statement from Everett Sunday.

In recent weeks, Fancher said, the 787 (designated ZA001) completed a rigorous series of tests including build verification tests, structures and systems integration tests, landing gear swings and factory gauntlet, which is the full simulation of the first flight using the actual airplane.

He said with Chief Pilot Mike Carriker at the controls, the simulation tested all flight controls, hardware and software.

The simulation also included manual and automatic landings and an extensive suite of subsequent ground tests.

"These results give us confidence in our ability to move into further gauntlet testing using either ground power or the airplane's engines or auxiliary power unit. This is a significant milestone on the path to first flight," Fancher said.

All structural tests required on the static airframe prior to first flight also are complete.

The final test occurred April 21 when the wing and trailing edges were subjected to their limit load - the highest loads expected to be seen in service.

The load is about the same as the airplane experiencing 2.5 times the force of gravity.

"We continue to analyze the data, but the initial results are positive," Fancher said.

Ground vibration testing, which measures the airplane's response to flutter, also concluded on the second flight-test airplane, designated ZA002, at the end of this week.

All the necessary structural tests required prior to first flight now are complete.

Now on the flight line, ZA001 will undergo additional airplane power and systems tests as well as engine runs.

After completing final systems checks and high-speed taxi tests, the airplane will be ready for first flight, which is on schedule for later this quarter.

The 787 Dreamliner has orders for 886 airplanes from 57 customers.

I was going to post the same. Finally the 787 is moving into the advanced flight testing phases. Late june will be the first flight, but much will be accomplished in the next 6-7 weeks.

Actually, I'm quite surprised that the 787-8 have significantly more orders than the 787-9.

why? There are many examples of streched versions with shorter range that get less orders.

A321, 767-400ER.

The -3 looks like it'll be a big hitter. Minus the winglets ofcourse. I guess a -3X version may be introduced for airlines out side of Japan.

Only one engine on each side? That's a bit odd for carrier that size.
I guess technology has really improved?

It's not huge... The 777 for instance is a lot bigger than the 787.

But then, technology has improved quite a lot
