Gallery: Boeing Showcases 737-9 EcoDemonstratorThierry Dubois
Boeing is evaluating a new set of 20 discrete technologies on the latest aircraft to feature in the ecoDemonstrator program—a 737-9 on loan from Alaska Airways. Mike Sinnett, vice president and general manager of product development for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, says sustainability is emerging as an increasingly important design parameter for the next new aircraft. The aircraft is being used as a testbed for more environmentally friendly technologies, as well as some that may cut operating costs. It is simultaneously used for scientific measurement campaigns.
