FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 12, 2014—Boeing [NYSE: BA] will begin offering global customers the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance and Surveillance System Risk Reduction Prototype (ERRP) now that the aircraft has received Supplemental Type Certification (STC) from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
