Boeing To Use Computer Simulations Instead of Physical Certification Tests For Some Aircraft

New submitter Falconhell writes: In an ironic turn of events, Boeing wants to skip some physical certification tests and use only simulations. Given their current situation, this seems like a rather controversial move. Boeing is “reducing the scope and duration of certain costly physical tests used to certify the planemaker’s new aircraft,” Reuters first reported over the weekend. The manufacturer wants to switch to software-based trials for things such as wing load testing, “instead of doing things like bending actual, and highly expensive, components until they snap,” adds The Register.
