Sounds like the JCAB is requiring a (singular) test flight per airplane and no training flights because they also know that can be accomplished in the simulator.
Do you have a source for this? As posted on another of the numerous threads on the topics, it has approved it conditional on additional checks and tests: http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel...set-to-resume-787-flights/2115241/
"Japan is requiring ANA and JAL to take additional safety measures, including installation of a system that allows monitoring of battery voltage on the ground and test flights of all 787 aircraft. A first test flight is expected Sunday."
ANA plans to conduct 230 test flight prior to returning to revenue service:
"The test flight by ANA, the Dreamliner's top customer, comes after U.S. and Japanese authorities gave approval for flights to resume and will be the first of some 230 flights the airline has planned before allowing the jet to carry passengers."
June before revenue flights resume:
"A resumption of Dreamliner commercial flights would be around June, as safety improvements are expected to take several weeks to finish, airline officials said."
