looking at this pic today, and reading the comment:
And it made me wonder, do governments require additional certifications for a new type of aircraft only?
Or does every single airframe has to undergo this before being registered?
Are these test more rigorous in any way than previous tests?
My LSA requires an inspection from the local authorities but she has not enjoyed an F-registration for Airbus nor an N for Boeing! I would have thought that Korean Airlines (in this case) would have had authorities in the loop as she passed all tests in France? These additional tests cost a lot of time and money, no?
