Boeing 777-300ER Tested at Edwards Air Force Base

While operating out of Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., the Boeing flight- test team conducted numerous company and U.S. Federal Aviation Administration certification tests including takeoff performance, abuse takeoffs and ground-minimum-control speed tests. Other tests at Edwards involved stability and control, air-minimum-control speed, stall characteristics, GE90-115B engine 15-knot tail wind and inlet-compatibility demonstrations, and flight-control-model suppression function evaluations.
