The 97-year-old aerospace and aviation company reached record revenues last year of $81.6 billion, fueled by increased orders of commercial airplanes like the 737 and the delivery of 11,000 military weapons systems. But its 787 “Dreamliner,” a new carbon composite-laden plane that promises 20% more fuel efficiency than the competition, hit a rough patch when the Federal Aviation Administration grounded it for two separate battery fires. The FAA has since approved the company’s planned battery fixes, allowing the plane to hit the skies again soon.
