Boeing reports that its all-new 7E7 Dreamliner passenger airplane will use Charlotte, N.C.-based Goodrich Corporation's fuel-quantity indicating system and fuel management software.

The indicating system measures fuel in the airplane's tanks while the software manages fuel supply during a flight and controls refuelling.

“We set aggressive goals for reliability and performance of the fuel quantity indicating system,” said Mike Bair, Senior Vice-President of the 7E7. “In addition, we set specific expectations for cost and schedule performance. Goodrich presented a robust proposal for meeting all of the targets and we are pleased to announce their participation on the program.”

The 7E7 Dreamliner is an all-new family of mid-sized airplanes that will provide exceptional fuel efficiencies for airlines and superior comfort for passengers. It is to enter service during 2008.

An array of Goodrich products can be found on each Boeing commercial aircraft now in production and Boeing military aircraft including the AH-64, C-17, F-15, and F/A-18.
