It is when a airline receives a new type of aircraft on there certificate they have to do proving runs to show they know how to operate that aircraft i.e company has a 737 on there certificate but they receive a 757 that is not on there certificate.

it is also done by a manufacturer to show that the aircraft works correctly as an airliner not just as an aeroplane. They load it up with a full load of passengers,baggage etc and then fly it on the sort of routes that that aircraft would normally fly on. a number of years ago I flew on a proving flight for the 146 (my aunt worked for Bae), we flew from Hatfield to Toulouse, got a quick tour of the Airbus facility and then back on the plane to Hatfield.
