Boeing 777X Uses Halco Hook & Loop Posted by Roy Arnot | November 15, 2017

We’re excited to be part of a new chapter for the world’s biggest aircraft builder. 

Last month Boeing kicked off production of its new 777X, a new series of the long-range wide-body 777 airliner which has been flying since 1994.  HALCO’s Flame Retardant Hook & Loop will be in the seating on the first gleaming aircraft to roll off the assembly line.

 

Highlights of the Boeing 777X

As the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, the 777X is unmatched in every aspect of performance. Costing over $360 million each, this is one magnificent flying machine. The hefty price tag seems of little consequence given Emirates’ record-breaking order for 150 aircraft! 

Perhaps the most iconic feature of the 777X will be its folding wingtip option. With the largest wingspan Boeing has ever produced, it will have an option where the wings fold up while taxiing to help with navigation around crowded airports.
