The New 787 Anticipated Delivery Schedule  
User currently offlineBP1 From United States of America, joined Aug 2007, 593 posts, RR: 1
Posted (6 years 1 month 4 weeks 1 day 12 hours ago) and read 24088 times:

With the Boeing strike resolved, what is the newly revised delivery schedule for the 787? During the 2 month Boeing break were any of the parts suppliers able to catch up on getting their parts into Boeing for the 787?

What is ANA's plan for the first flight at this point?

Cheers,
BP1

Honest answer? Nobody knows.

The pundits will just add 60 days (at least) to the last timeline, but I am hoping that those 60 days idle will result in a quicker completion schedule then if they hadn't had them and were still getting in each other's way on the planes.  crossfingers

When is the first flight? Obviously not this year probably Q1-2009.

I wonder if it could be more than that? Will they be able to restart at breakneck speed?, or at least the speed they were at immediately before the strike?

Looking at the project sofar assuming the flight test program won't go perfect is a safe starting point IMO. So first flight Q1 09, testflight program for about a year (aircraft #2 - #4 probably won't come online as quickly as hoped) , delivery Q2 2010.

Goodrich CEO Marshall Larsen predicted that there will be no 787 deliveries in 2009. Goodrich supplies electric brakes and thrust reversers to the 787 program. You will recall there was a delay in certifying brake software. So ANA will likely take delivery in 2010.

Dreamliners 5 and 6 are not yet in Everett and are part of the fleet of test airframes. Until all six test aircraft are flying, we cannot say for sure when certification will take place.

In short, it is all up in the air!

That may be an issue. A lot of lessons were learned on the first airframe. Question is how far those lessons are included on the #2-6 or will work will have to be redone. If so that might take some time, slowing the test flight process.



I think the FAA will take a conservative approach. Their responsibilities have nothing to do with fast introduction and there is a lot of new technology involved.

It depends on the level of outsourcing Boeing would have done. The aerodynamics would have been much trickier since we were designing a plane that could theoretically have performed in a transonic flight regimen. And it was still going to be made out of CFRP.

Not quite. Airplanes 5 and 6 are GE-powered airplanes. Theoretically, the RR powered airplanes can be certified before the GE airplanes are fully tested.



That's why we're here.

The calculations I'm working off of have the first flight early in February. This is my assessment and not any kind of Boeing calculation.

I'm working with these assumptions:

Original Factory Completion: August 31
Original First flight: October 29 (er...today)

New Factory Completion (pre-strike target): October 6

With a 60 day strike and a one-for-one slip in schedule (though I think it's slightly more) this pushes everything into late Jan/Feb 09.

Absolutely Astuteman! Pity Keejse didn't take some of them us on their monetary bets.....would have cleaned up! The real pity though is those who made such vicious attacks can't simply admit they were wrong, but rather try to distance themselves as ever having said anything.

Quoting BP1 (Thread starter):
With the Boeing strike resolved,

Everyone's a little premature, the vote is (I understand) Saturday and there still maybe a sizeable contingent voting against until the signing bonus equals the striker's lost pay. When they do go back there is a time for getting re-cetified, purging obsolete materials, and catching up on backlogged materials... Plus the engineers haven't been idle so there are probably lots of design revisions to be incorporated.

Give them a month after returning to work to sort out the schedules.... it's not like Detroit when you just turn the machine back on and out pops a product.

Well, no flight test program goes perfectly, as far as I know, so I guess you mean "worse than normal." How so? Most of the 787 issues that have come out so far appear to be supply chain/project management, not technical. Assuming that they actually hand a completed airplane to flight test, do we have reason to believe the design itself is flawed?

Judging by the small pieces of information from the ground tests, there's no reason to believe the flight test program will find any major techincal problems. But judging by the assembly process so far, there's every reason in the world to believe that Boeing won't have six or even four airplanes flying according to the original schedule, which was very tight.

Tee Hee, there are some interesting names with predictable flags lambasting Keesje.

Not good for Boeing, but my SWAG is that the airlines are not all that unhappy at delays at the moment. Obviously there would be exceptions (QF comes to mind), but instead of the airline delaying, Boeing will have to compensate. With a recession - if not depression - on the very near horizon, US airlines in particular may prefer a delay.
