FAA approves the B-787`s maintenance program


Boeing announced that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved the all-new 787 Dreamliner`s scheduled maintenance program.
The scheduled maintenance program defines the maintenance tasks and intervals operators will use to maintain the 787 and is documented in the 787 Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR).
The report was accepted by the Maintenance Review Board, an FAA organization composed of specialists who review and accept maintenance requirements. This MRBR approval from the FAA is one of the many requirements needed for airplane certification.
Boeing has designed the 787 to be 30 percent less expensive to maintain than any comparable product. This savings is largely due to the 787 advanced design, the wide use of composite structure and the highly integrated systems architecture, which allow for fewer maintenance tasks and longer intervals between tasks.
By requiring less maintenance less often than comparably sized jets, the 787 will be more available for revenue service, leading to significant financial and scheduling opportunities for airlines.
