He did indeed! I also found this quite interesting :)

Yeah, No way that's good when it comes to fuel prices etc. It did also say "Virtual fuel virtually doesn't cost any mony" in the manual Vol 3. I think they're a bit ironic about the whole fuel saving thing.

There are a few reasons to use the APU in that stage of flight. If you use it for non-flight systems such as cabin or anti-icing, the engines can deliver more power for take off or climb, which can reduce the take off lenght amongst other things. It also keep the temperatures down on the engines and reduces the wear and tear on them.

Sounds like there's a few of us in the area! Might be interesting to do a meetup. There's that restaurant at the airport now (though its pricey).

I would be all over that. We should arrange a meet up. Sounds like a fun time.

I know he'll be busy but I wonder if @Mathijs Kok is monitoring the forum and chuckling to himself about how we are all impatiently waiting for the announcement

 

I am, but not chuckling.  In fact I am about to explode from utter frustration. 
We are waiting for some information before we can make our announcement.

I have heard in the CRJ-200, sometimes the APU is left on til 10,000 for bleed air reasons. Not sure if this applies to the -700/-900 or if it's a company thing

This is because the Thrust reversers are pneumatically operated on the 200. So air must be used in order for them to deploy. On the 700/900/1000 they are hydraulically deployed and therefore we don't leave the APU on for takeoff. The only time we would is when we need to perform a bleeds off takeoff for performance or if we had an MEL item such as an inop IDG.

So the APU is switched off prior to departure then? I thought the dude said to leave it on to FL100 - don't want to get it wrong haha

Well if that's all the hold up is then okay, here is some information: The Dome of St Paul's Cathedral, is 365 feet high.

Well there's your answer then. The video must be a company SOP then
