The FAA directive mandates changes to Boeing 787 Dreamliners

Washington, D.C. - The U.S. Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) has requested some changes to the Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

According to the statement made by the U.S regulator on May 1st, the flight control software and some of the parts of the Boeing 787s need some adjustments due to the unsafe operating condition.

The airworthiness directive sent to the airlines by the Federal Aviation Administration mandates changes to Boeing 787's tires and wheels outlined as "threat zones" for flight safety.

The FAA said the Boeing 787 tires and wheels are vulnerable to damage.

"This issue has been long since resolved with system improvements that have been incorporated into production for all 787 models," Boeing said in an e-mail statement.

There are nearly 800 Boeing 787s in service around the world. The aircraft competes with its European rival Airbus A350.
