I am trying to determine the cost of a flap overspeed inspection. Ignoring the cost of any parts. On average, how long does a flap overspeed inspection take? Or how long would a partial/full flap overspeed inspection take?

On a regional jet size airplane, about 1-2 manhours. On a large airliner, maybe one guy on each wing would take 1-2 hours, so say 4 manhours.

You're just inspecting for things that are bent or broken.

If the inspection procedure requires removal of fairings and panels, maybe add another hour.
