First Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner Flight (Sept 17, 2013)

Fri Sep 13, 2013 4:36 am

According to Reuters, two sources have told them that Boeing is targeting the middle or the end of next week for the maiden flight of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

"(Reuters) - Boeing plans to make the first flight of the 787-9 next week, a stretch version of its high-tech Dreamliner, according to two people familiar with the plans.
The flight, a key milestone in development of a sought-after longer version of the fuel-efficient aircraft, is tentatively planned for the middle or end of next week, although it could be delayed by technical factors and weather, the sources said.

The 787-9 is 20 feet longer than the 787-8 model currently in production, and will seat up to 40 more passengers, for a total of 290, making it more economical to operate. It has about 300 nautical miles in additional range.

A flight next week will put Boeing on the early side of its schedule for the plane, which Boeing said would make its first flight in the second half of 2013. The first delivery is due in mid-2014.

A flight next week also could put the 787-9 in the air before the first flight of the Bombardier (BBDb.TO) CSeries, which was due to make its maiden voyage last year but has suffered a series of delays. That flight is now expected this month.

In June, Boeing launched the 787-10, which will add another 18 feet to the 787-9's length, but will have a shorter range than either of the earlier jets.

The 787-9 carries a list price of $243.6 million, compared with $206.8 million for the 787-8. Boeing hasn't disclosed a price for the 787-10.

They evidently didn't check the calendar either?   Last I heard, we're bang in the middle of the 'second half of 2013'?

"A flight next week will put Boeing on the early side of its schedule for the plane, which Boeing said would make its first flight in the second half of 2013.

Nevertheless, UA767400, thanks for the 'heads up'! Always great to see another 'first flight' - and Boeing do at least seem finally to be back on the (much revised) schedule for B787 design/construction.

I think they did, actually.

"Bang in the middle" is 30th Sept / 1st Oct.

We're still just over two weeks away from that so, for the next two weeks, we are still "on the early side" (i.e. the first half) of Boeing's 6 month target period for first flight. After 1st Oct, using the Reuters terminology, we'd be "on the late side".

Hopefully indeed. I am personally disappointed with the quality and quantity of Boeing's public messages on the 787-9 tests in general. The other OEM's are clearly better in this regard in my humble opinion.

Boeing: 787-9 could fly as early as Tuesday

Excerpts from the link above ...

Quote:
...
Boeing plans to webcast the event.

Spokeswoman Kate Bergman emailed journalists: "We have successfully completed a number of key lead-up milestones in recent weeks. We're on track for first flight in the coming days, as early as Tuesday, Sept. 17.

"Be advised that, as flight testing is dynamic by its very nature, the schedule for first flight is always subject to change due to weather conditions and other factors."

That was one hell of a storm, wasn't it? Closest hit for me was 0.1 miles (I'm in Bellevue).

Anyway, generally looks to be overcast so I expect ceilings will be sufficient for flight.

That's also why the rollout was very low-key on a Saturday in August when nobody was paying attention.

It's not in Boeing's PR department job description to keep A.netters informed of every little thing and besides if they did we'd have nothing to talk about. When the first flight date and time was set (after taxi tests today) they let everybody know.

Wherever that came from it probably wasn't a quote from the Boeing Company. Past rollouts and first flights of other derivatives were also fairly low key in most cases.

Of course that isn't their jobs to inform the general public of every detail. However, it is their jobs to keep media and shareholders adequately informed of developments that could impact shareholder value and certainly this qualifies. I wish they would release more information than they do but it is certainly their right not to do any such thing even if I am a shareholder.

Quoting 7BOEING7 (Reply 26):

Yes, they did. Via twitter. No press release, no Randy's Journal, just a one sentence tweet issues less than 13 hours before planned takeoff. Its very interesting how low-key they are trying to keep the 787 program right now. Not sure I blame them.

And if I was a test pilot in this program, the last thing I would want is marketing guys in my face asking me when first flight is.

Nonsense. The exact time of first flight of a derivative will have no impact on shareholder value.

edit: I noticed Bombardier gave only 2 days notice for C-Series first flight. Over a weekend. Where's the outrage?

My comment was about the lack of information about the entire program where information about the first flight is just one important milestone. Look at the quality of information available about the A350 testing to give you an idea of what information sharing is possible. Obviously Boeing does not have an interest in sharing that level of information.

I'd argue that point. The 787-9 is likely to be the highest-selling member of the 787 family and a "low drama" flight test and certification process would likely boost the stock price, whereas a troubled one would depress it.

Doesn't sound like it.

It launched with 102 commitments from five airlines, of which 50 are currently firmed (30 for SQ and 20 for UA) so it's already a bigger success than the 767-400ER and it's future looks to be a very bright one.
