Boeing confirms March 31st date for 787-10 First Flight

Share This

Boeing just released the date for the first flight of the 787-10 which is March 31st as I had reported earlier.

This is all weather dependent.  I expect that Boeing will fly ZC001 (LN 528, N528ZC) to Boeing Field by April 10th to start flight and certification testing of the 787-10.  This process should take about year.  Currently the second 787-10 (GE powered) is due to roll out of the Charleston assembly building 88-30 today and the last 787-10 flight test aircraft should start final assembly in early April and should be flying around late May.

In the meantime, Boeing has been continuing flight tests of the Trent 100 TEN engine on ZA004 (N7874, LN 004) which is the engine that is fitted to ZC001.
