EASA to ground 787
After the Federal Aviation Administration said on Wednesday it would temporarily ground 787s after a second incident involving battery failures, EASA released that it is working closely with the FAA as the primary certification authority and Boeing. EASA adopted the FAA Airworthiness Directive on Thursday morning, in order to ensure the continuing airworthiness of the European fleet of 787s (currently 2 Boeing 787s operated by LOT Polish Airlines). The Agency released that it continues to carefully monitor the situation and is prepared to provide any support the FAA may require in their investigation.
