With Boeing ready to start the testing Monday, will the FAA want to see a simulated runaway trim failure in flight?

  • $\begingroup$ If the failure effect constitutes hazardous criticality, it usually won't be done in flight. $\endgroup$ – JZYL Jun 28 at 21:12
  • $\begingroup$ As far as I've seen, the FAA has not published the exact plan the test flights. The only quote I could find is "Testing is expected to take several days, and will include a wide array of flight maneuvers and emergency procedures to enable the agency to assess whether the changes meet FAA certification standards." (CNN). $\endgroup$ – Bianfable Jun 29 at 15:52
