"More work remains but we are seeing excellent progress in flight test," said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 program for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Even more important than the hours we've logged are the test conditions we have completed. The team is being very efficient in getting the data we need."
"It's also important to note that we are making solid progress on the ground testing required on the flight test fleet as well," Fancher said.
