I'm a resident of Everett, Washington living near the wide body assembly plant for Boeing. Does anyone know the regulations/company policy regarding test flying before delivery? I see several heavy aircraft in the Airline livery but never see any flight testing conducted. Is their a shakeout proceedure before the Airlines accept delivery? Also if flight testing is done to green airplanes how can they simulate center of gravity issues without a full pax load/or cargo. Doesn't that figure in to MAC/LMAC/CG performance? Finally how can alumigrip or imron paint be applied to green aircraft in such a damp invironment of the Northwest?
