Maintenance time on the Boeing 787 will be half that of the 767 thanks to a series of innovations.

These innovations include carbonfibre structures, advanced systems monitoring, electrics replacing hydraulic and other systems and LED lighting, says Boeing.

Courtney Makela, 787 fleet chief, told a workshop session at MRO Middle East in Dubai that 150 instruction pilots were ready to train customer pilots and that the airframer had "service ready products in place" for maintenance shops.
