Actually the workload is pretty low during this approach. You just need some more experience with the aircraft and it will be like riding a bicycle. Most of the work was already done in cruise flight. The CRJ is a very forgiving aircraft when you screw up your energy management.
 

The only thing that is typical CRJ during the approach is the lack of autothrust. But if you fly the aircraft 4 times a day week after week you will also move those thrustlevers without even thinking about them. Did you know that the „travel range“ of the thrust levers is 3 times larger than that of an Airbus? This helps a lot with finetuning and getting a subconscious feel for the „correct“ thrustlever position.

I switched on the landing lights in FL100 as you should do. Some airlines use the TAXI light as a reminder for the landing clearance and this is what I did in the video. 

 

The CRJ has three landing light switches and one taxi light switch to the far right of the lights panel.

Ah, I watched it one more time now and I missed that. Thank you.
