J VanDomelen Much of the aerospace community has been silently watching the series of unfortunate events surrounding the Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airplane this year—from fuel leaks to fires, which resulted in the grounding of the entire global fleet of roughly 50 Dreamliner aircraft. Airbus, Boeing’s biggest competitor, is often a very vocal opponent. In fact, Airbus criticized Boeing for accepting considerable … Read More

J VanDomelen Are U.S. avionics and aircraft risk assessment and certification processes flawed? The defects now evident in Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airliners are causing the public and safety professionals to question the efficacy of current methods. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) officials investigating the cause of a short circuit in a Boeing Dreamliner 787 lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery are … Read More

J VanDomelen All eyes in the aerospace market, especially those of safety specialists, have been on Boeing and the avionics employed by its Dreamliner 787 since a Japan Airlines (JAL) commercial airplane caught fire in Boston last month. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), roughly one month after an investigation was launched, revealed that the battery was indeed responsible for the fire. NTSB Chairman … Read More

J VanDomelen The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in the U.S., investigating the cause of a fire on a Boeing Dreamliner 787 parked at Boston Logan Airport in January, transitioned its work from a macroscopic study to a microscopic examination, including chemical and elemental analysis of the areas of internal short circuiting and thermal damage. Soon after launching a microscopic investigation, NTSB officials … Read More

J VanDomelen The aerospace industry has been a hotbed of activity this year—and we’re only two months into 2013. The hottest news (no pun intended) has been and continues to be related to the grounding of the entire fleet of Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airliners. Just last month, the Transport Ministry within the Japan Transport Safety Board (JTSB) closed its investigation of Kyoto, Japan-based battery manufacturer … Read More

J VanDomelen The Boeing 787 Dreamliner tale has it all: mystery, suspense, and now controversy. On the same day, Japan’s Transport Ministry closed its investigation of Kyoto, Japan-based battery manufacturer GS Yuasa, and U.S. safety officials asked Boeing for its operating history of lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery use on 787 aircraft. The Transport Ministry, part of the Japan Transport Safety Board (JTSB), found … Read More

J VanDomelen Just as an avalanche of events occurred this month related to the Boeing Dreamliner 787, with one issue after another rearing its ugly head, a seeming chain reaction of investigations has also resulted. Boeing, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), Federal Aviation Administration, Japan’s Transport Ministry and Civil Aviation Bureau launched investigations; and, the European Aviation Safety … Read More

J VanDomelen What can only be described as a series of unfortunate events (to borrow from Lemony Snicket) with prompted organizations dedicated to safety to launch investigations into the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s safety and potential for additional problems, as well as to ground 787s until its safety is proven. While some problems are expected in the release of new design into service the quick succession of these … Read More

J VanDomelen When we last left off, the auxiliary power unit (APU) of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner parked at Boston’s Logan Airport had caught fire, purportedly melting a Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery module. It would not be the last of the commercial airliner’s—or even Japan Airlines’—problems, however. The very next day (Jan. 8), in fact, a second Japan Airlines (JAL) 787 suffered a fuel leak, and its flight out of … Read More

J VanDomelen Aerospace professionals the world over are focused on three little words: Lithium ion batteries. Even the collective interest of the defense community (more on that later) is piqued about potential power problems. Alliteration aside, Boeing’s 787 battery has captured the attention of aerospace geeks, government agencies, and the traveling public. In case you haven’t heard about the latest trouble with … Read More

J VanDomelen The rivalry between large civil aircraft (LCA) manufacturers Airbus in Toulouse, France, and The Boeing Company in Seattle, Washington, spans three decades—only now, though, is it getting particularly heated (and even ugly). The latest conflict centers on the legality of government subsidies and loans enjoyed by both parties. On 12 March 2012, the World Trade Organization (WTO) Appellate Body released … Read More

J VanDomelen It’s the last thing I think about when I board a plane; yet, it’s first of mind when I see that we’re approaching pavement at a high rate of speed upon reaching our destination. You guessed it: I’m talking about brakes. This aircraft element gains little consumer attention (unless it fails to work, of course), but the critical system component is garnering considerable attention from the technology … Read More

J VanDomelen The mil/aero community, especially those members working in the aviation and avionics segment, is increasingly consumed with learning more and ensuring compliance with current standards and regulations. For many, regulatory compliance and all that it entails are terribly stressful and wrought with bureaucracy, various “hoops” through which to jump, and threats of excessive fines and jail time. Not surprisingly, … Read More

J VanDomelen The Boeing Company completed its sixth and final test flight of the controversial new 787 jetliner yesterday, Sunday, 17 October 2010. According to flightaware.com, the 787 flew roundtrip from Boeing Field in Seattle to Moses Lake, Wa., and took approximately two and a half hours to complete the mission. This event was one and a half hours longer than the last flight of the 787 (specifically the ZA006) … Read More
