How Many Test Flights Do Aircraft Need?

Fri Jul 30, 2004 4:21 pm

When Boeing or Airbus finish building an aircraft, how many test flights are done on average before they deliver the aircraft to its new owner?

Depends on if they find problems with the aircraft that needs to be fixed before its delivered. Also, the customer will do several test flights before the aircraft *ever* carries a passenger.
