Clearly the 319 incident raises the question…
Bottom line is the aircraft is under the command of the Captain who is ultimately responsible for not only the safety of his passengers and aircraft but also he/she must have confidence in the company’s ops procedure.
I see many examples of pilots going beyond the ops procedures of airlines and companies and increasing their airmanship in terms of navigational and flight safety procedures.
To directly answer your question, my walk round (first or third sector of the day) does include all panels/covers closed, – but I accept a G IV is easier to inspect than a larger passenger jet.
