FAA Begins Comprehensive Review of Boeing 787

 - January 14, 2013, 1:25 PM

The FAA has launched what it calls “a comprehensive review of the Boeing 787 critical systems, including the design, manufacture and assembly.” The agency said the review will “validate the work conducted during the certification process and further ensure that the aircraft meets the FAA’s high level of safety.” U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced the move on January 11. The decision follows a series of mishaps with the long-haul airliner, including an onboard fire, electrical wiring issues and a fuel leak. Boeing has said it has full confidence in the safety of the aircraft.

In my opinion the "787 Certification Program Manager" (CPM) , did not performed correctly, because the Certified Aircraft dose not even comply with
FAR § 25.1353 .
I will bet, that the "Batteries System Qualification Test Program" which did not reflect the Aircraft actual requirements, was adopted by CPM – why !!! .
Only some one outside the FAA, should check how it was approved .
( I am ready to help him, to find, why the Batteries issue was not discovered during the Qualification Test ).
