EVERETT, Wash.—The Federal Aviation Administration said it accepted a request by Boeing Co. BA +0.32% to allow the new 777X version of its best-selling long-range jetliner to be approved under rules that grandfather the plane under the current model's certification.
The approval clears a major regulatory hurdle for the plane maker, likely significantly reducing the amount of changes Boeing will have to make to the jet to meet the latest aviation safety standards. Boeing plans to bring a slate of advanced technologies and new features to the 777X.
The FAA and its foreign counterparts grant certification and must sign off on new airplanes before they can carry passengers. Getting regulators to certify the 777X as an incremental upgrade is far simpler and less costly for Boeing than entirely recertifying the jet from nose to tail. Full recertification likely would have resulted in significantly more flight testing and extensive ground programs to verify that every aspect of the jet's design is up to the latest standards.

That averages out to just over 62 a month.
MESA, Ariz., May 1, 2014 -- Boeing's [NYSE: BA] AH-6i light attack/reconnaissance helicopter has flown for the first time in its production configuration, moving the program another step closer to full-scale production while continuing to prove the helicopter's close air support and attack capabilities. Boeing pilots flew the aircraft for less than 20-minutes at low speeds in forward, rearward and sideward flight at low elevations during a recent test. Future tests will expand the flight envelope over the next several months. "This first AH-6 flight in the production configuration takes us closer to delivering an advanced light attack and reconnaissance helicopter that meets the needs of defense forces around the world," said Boeing AH-6 Program Director Scott Rudy. The AH-6i is a single-turbine helicopter that is based on the combat-proven OH-6A Cayuse. It is an advanced variant of the AH-6M helicopter operated by the U.S. Army Special Operations Forces. It incorporates advanced technologies from the Boeing AH-64E Apache multirole attack helicopter that give it superior performance over other aircraft in its class. The helicopter is intended to provide close-air support for land-based forces and serve as an attack platform for destroying tanks, armored vehicles and fortifications.
