  1. Hello Dude

    Are the displays in the cockpit of the crj 900/1000 cathode ray tubes like on the 700/550?



  2. That sounds way too much old school and can not be excepted from modern day pilots. I learned to fly the CRJ in a time before advisory VNAV and non of the “old hands” ever used the MFD VNAV page when it became available. Love your description of the remaining % of pilots. “Interesting” is exactly the right word to use.
  3. That is the way it is yes. Probably to prevent the navigation display from being cluttered up too much. Or just to annoy us pilots…
  4. Imagine how annoying it is for RW pilots when they get cleared to DM426 for example. These waypoints are in the database so you just enter them into the FMS when an “insensitive” ATC controller clears you to one and then you “clean up” the FMS flightplan, or better yet you order the PM to do it because CRM wise you are not allowed to….
  5. Funny how you seem to know why I did something and even more interesting to know that many RW airlines seem to live in some sort of parallel universe where they apply SOPs that are not used in "real life". Please, stick to stuff you know ok? No need to make things up or post opinion as fact. The AS CRJ has bugs and you can report or comment on them without telling fairytales. Thanks.
  6. As a tester I did not hear anything about the CR9 progress yet, so "soon" is a bit too optimistic.
  7. Yeah, these videos were more about the tutorial flight and how to fly from A to B. A proper RNAV app, holding and go around will probably have to wait until the CR9 is ready and I have some time available again.
  8. It will sort of work but it is dependant one which resolution and aspect ratio you use. Best to make custim views oneself.
  9. I have to look at my settings because my mouse pointer is not loosing the focus/contact with the knob. I can lean forward to have a closer look at the PFD and it still works. Maybe it is an Oculus thing.
  10. Just my 2 cents here, I fly the CRJ with a G2 and I have no problems with what is described here. If I put my mouse on the altitude knob on the FCP and look at my left winglet I can still change the altitude value in the PFD by rotating the mouse wheel. What do you mean by focussed? Clicking the right mouse button to zoom in? If yes than it is an MSFS problem.
  11. The brake temperature indication is in units and not in C or F temperature. Therefor there is not relation between SAT and brake temperature indication on the CRJ. 00-06 units means the brake temperature is below 221C for example.
  12. It was a running joke in my company. We were one of the first to receive the CR7 and the documentation was iffy at the time. The people at Bombardier just told us in the sim to never ever touch it when we asked what "that" button does. In the end it is not part of any checklist or procedure during normal and abnormal ops. We only used it during technical acceptance flights, if at all.
  13. Check out episode 6, you switch them on after you started the engines.
