 Boeing and FedEx Express will collaborate to fly the next ecoDemonstrator.

Starting in 2018, a new Boeing 777 Freighter made for FedEx Express will test emerging technologies, such as propulsion advancements and flight deck innovations.

The ecoDemonstrator program, now in its fifth iteration, serves as a series of flying testbeds designed to improve the environmental performance and safety of future airplanes.

“The ecoDemonstrator program is focused on harvesting exciting new technologies that will benefit our airline customers, the flying public and the environment,” said Mike Sinnett, Boeing Commercial Airplanes Product Development Vice President.

The collaboration on the newest ecoDemonstrator project is the latest in a 38 year relationship between Boeing and FedEx.

“FedEx is committed to developing and implementing innovative solutions that connect the world responsibly and resourcefully,” said David Cunningham, FedEx Express President and CEO.

“We’re proud to work with Boeing and use our 777 Freighter to play a key role in bringing future benefits to the entire aviation industry.”
