I was wondering how many hours the average commercial airliner has at the time it is delivered. I was looking at a photo and the caption said it was returning from it's fourth pre delivery flight.


I have no idea what I'm doing...

As far as business jets go, at Cessna the average small Citation Jet has less than 10 hours at delivery. Some of the larger Sovereign or Citation X jets may have up to 15 hours at delivery.
The pre-delivery flights include green flights (before interior is installed), and production acceptance flights that verify the performance of all systems (electronic, hydraulic, avionic, etc)

The AF 777 F-GSPZ was stored after acceptance, prior to delivery at VCV. It had 7hrs TTAF.

Regards,

Mike

IFIXCF6- Can you elaborate as to why Air France would deliver a brand new 777 to a scrapping facility (Victorville)?

I don't think that Victorville is only a scrapping facility. It is merely a storage facility for aircraft. Not every airplane that goes there is scrapped, many of them re-enter service. Some are in short term storage, some in long term storage, and some will be scrapped.

She obviously wasn't scrapped. Here she is last month.
