Don't you guys have the CRJ700? It's the same thing just 10 feet longer for the 900.

Lets follow the trail. Are these the 900's that Delta took from Mesa gave to Comair then went to Pinnacle. Nope lets give them to Mesaba and now they are coming to ASA.

Don't get too comfortable Captain. My bet is by Saturday they'll be doing touch and go's in SLC. Not a fact just the way Mother Delta does business.

They never went to Pinnacle. Pinnacle just babysat them til Delta decided what to do with the planes. Comair and Mesaba are wholly owned. Delta can yank them around. The 900s are under contract with ASA. So....

Stop hatin.....

I'm gonna go ahead and nominate this for FI post of the decade. Well done, sir.

Bonus points if you ask how to make a 180 on the fire road to get to the gate........

Wow, that sounds like a bad idea.

I guess every company does it their own way. My first -900 landing at Comair was when it showed up on my schedule. We did a transition ground school but no flight training.

The ASA way should be fun at least. I expect the peanut gallery won't be too tough on you...

There is really no reason to go do touch n go's in the thing...If you fly the 700, you can fly the 900...there really isn't a noticeable landing difference (other than the 900 seems to hide bad landings better than the 700).

Last I was told they're doing them in MGM, going to do IP's, CP's and guys on reserve first the others will follow later. The training isn't required they're just doing it b/c we've got guys in the training dept that care about our pilots.
