Boeing's first P-8I aircraft for the Indian Navy began its official flight test programme on July 7, taking off from Boeing Field in Seattle to demonstrate flying qualities and handling characteristics.

The flight went as planned with all test objectives met.

The P-8I is one of eight long-range maritime reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft Boeing is building for India as part of a contract awarded in January 2009.

During the coming months, Boeing test pilots will put the P-8I, a Next-Generation 737-800 derivative, through its paces over a US Navy test range west of Neah Bay, Washington, and a joint US/Canadian test range in the Strait of Georgia.

The delivery will began from year 2013.
