!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

Brakes

Recommended Posts

So, there are no autobrakes on the CRJ700/900. 

But I have the feeling, that after touchdown the plane doesnt really slows down that much with reverse and spoilers only. 

When do real pilots use the breakes? Probably not at 60 knots. Can the brakes be used immediately after touchdown or would that overheat the brakes?

I hope my question is understandable ;)

from my experience as a passenger, they use them as soon as the nose wheel touches the ground. In Munich the Lufthansa aircraft usually brake pretty hard to slow down fast enough to catch the exit to the apron at Terminal 2

From my experience as a passenger on numerous CRJ 700 and 900 flights, the pilots get on the brakes early and "decisively". CRJ brakes are very rugged and built for many landing cycles per day.

Ok, because I was always pretty "gentle" with the brakes.
