I know this country would never put safety over profit-seeking, so this idea isn't going to happen at all, but I'm guessing designs would be a lot more safety-focused if getting a design approved required C-level executives and engineers to participate in the flight tests. You'd have so many redundant fail-safes that the planes would crash upward in the event of a farkup.
