FAA reportedly approves GE engines on 787-9

The Federal Aviation Administration approved Boeing’s 787-9 for use with General Electric engines, according to the Chicago Tribune and the blog All Things 787.

The FAA and Boeing could not immediately be reached for comment, and a document cited by the two sources was not available on the FAA’s website Saturday.

Boeing delivered the first 787-9 to Air New Zealand in late June with Rolls-Royce engines.

The company is on track to deliver 10 to 12 of the 787-9, which is a larger version of the 787-8, this year, according to All Things 787.

The airplane is assembled in Everett and North Charleston, South Carolina.

UPDATE: Boeing has confirmed that it received FAA approval. However, a spokesman declined to comment on when first delivery of a 787-9 with GE engines would happen.
