Boeing resumes 787 certification flights

Boeing Co. has resumed flight tests of its 787 jetliner aimed at achieving Federal Aviation Administration certification. Boeing halted test flights of the long-delayed jet last fall because of an in-flight electrical fire in the plane’s power distribution system that forced an emergency landing Nov. 9.

It resumed flight tests in late December, but not until Monday did it resume tests for FAA certification. The federal agency must certify aircraft before they can enter service.

Boeing says it has four 787s back in the test program, including the one that had the fire. Two more are expected to be flying again in the next week or so.
