It all depends on how much fuel/checked bags/carry-ons and O2 supply. Personally, I HATE to have to ride in that damned thing. It would be better than water-boarding if used as an interrogation tool! I have sat in the DASH jumpseat on a number of occasions with PDT out of ROA, and it was more comfortable than the 73 jumpseat.
I hope you haven't had any trouble with CJC and getting on?

In another life time when I was a dispatcher, I had to ride that thing for 5 hour observation rides.
I'm 6'7 tall and just a tid bit over 10% body fat, so I guess I'm over weight.
When they rotated on take off, my knees would hit the controls.

Usually not a ramp weight issue, problem is the zero fuel weight. If there are a lot of bags in the back, it could put the paperwork over the zero fuel weight.

It seems ok weight wise for the most part. After a good few minutes though you will suffer for a good case of Saab ass thats for sure...

I hope it's not Colgan you need a ride on since you trip over yourself to bash us to death on here. If it is Colgan you hope to ride on, I hope it's graduation weekend in CHO, ITH, SYR, or SCE and bags are packed to the gills, thus a weight restriction. Jackass.

Kaman, when did you ride a dash JS, They can't take a full boat and a JS. At least not the -100. I have ridden the Saab JS, not the most comfortable but gets you where you need to go. As I recall, they only had 15 bags and that allowed it to work in the Saab.

A lot of the flying into ROA for us is on the 300...that plane its the complete opposite of the 100 weight-wise. Most of the time I can get 50 people, a jumpseater and 80 bags with a decent load of fuel.

If you get a light, empty weight -100, low bags and 3100 lbs of t/o fuel you can ride JS with a full boat assuming a kid or two. Summer weights help too.

A well motivated crew can and usually will get a jumpseater on a -100. I've done it numerous times. There's always at least 10 kids in the back during the summer......

I agree w you Snaab. I would never EVER let that jelly toolbag on my plane. IF I knew what his family looked like I would deny them boarding as well. Have fun at Piedmont a$$hole.

...Just had a guy get canned for doing something like this. It is a different environment out there now. Tattle tales are everywhere, FWIW.

Very true. The days of playing games is way over. A full Dash 100 isn't gonna take a jumpseater unless there's like 7 kids in the back or the bag count is really, really so. Most of the time we're only gonna get 34-35 pax on that plane with the bags.

However if the Crew knows ahead of time we can try and get as many carry ons inside the plane to help.

Would be Awesome if they included the Jumpseat into the BOW.
