Boeing to Propose 787 Battery Fixes to the Federal Aviation Administration

Bloomberg reported that Boeing 787 officials are said to be preparing possible solutions to show to the United States Federal Aviation Administration to ensure that the battery of the 787 Dreamliner will not damage the plane or emit smoke.

As quoted in the market news:

Any repairs would be subject to FAA approval, and the agency isn’t expected to act immediately without test results showing the fixes can ensure safety, the person said. Changes in the battery also would need the backing of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, who has said the 787 won’t fly again until the U.S. is “1,000 percent sure” it’s safe.
