FlightGlobal reports that the FAA is “set to publish a final list of 10 special conditions on certificating the airworthiness of Boeing’s unique folding wingtips for the 777X family.” The final list is expected to be published Friday in the Federal Register, “even as Boeing has started building the wings for the first four 777X test aircraft in Everett, Washington.” In a statement, Boeing said that it has worked with the FAA to formulate the rules for several years.
