While on final this past weekend in a 172 I was cleared to land just after a XJT E145 was cleared for TO on the same runway. At the end of MY clearance the contrlloer advised, "Cleared to land Rwy22, caution wake turbulence from departing RJ". This was a first. I'd been given that advisory while following a NWA DC-9-30 but never an RJ. Do they really create enough wake to warrant this?...I didn't notice anything at all.
