Does the CRJ have a auto throttle

Recommended Posts

Does the CRJ has a auto throttle? I ask this cause tonight I downloaded a POSKY CRJ (Iberia) and when flying it I discovered the auto throttle botton did not work. The auto throttle does work on my other 4 POSKY CRJ's I have. I am using the same panel in all of my CRJ's (a panel made by Marco Spada)If the CRJ does have the auto throttle, what do I have to do so that the auto throttle works on my new Iberia CRJ?

That is a cool panel by Marco based on Chris Alevertis's FS2000 panel. He issued a patch shortly after he released that panel to correct the missing autopilot. As to whether a real CRJ has an autothrottle I am not sure, but that panel will, with the patch.Cheers, Scott

I had the same question myself. I solved it by (gasp) using Bill Grabowski's great ERJ panel with my CRJ. Guilty as charged.

Thanks for the replies :) I also posted this question in POSKYS forum to see what they have to say about this too.

The last issue of FLYING mag has an article on flying the CRJ. Nope, no autothrottle included.Michael J.

Hi all!I'm just curious since a lot of people apparently uses Bill G:s ERJ-panel to the POSKY CRJ and that the two planes are quite similar, are they the same type of plane just manufactured by two different companies? Or are they not related whatsoever, just two different planes in about the same size? Just curious since I'm about to download Bill's panel myself but not wanting to be too far off! ciao!/fredrik

Actually the two manufacturers are mortal enemies: Brazil's Embraer makes the ERJ and Bombardier makes the CRJ in Montreal. The two companies have taken the case to the world court, arguing over whether the other is providing/being given unfair subsidies.That's why, as a Canadian, I feel a little guilty about using an ERJ panel in my CRJ :( (It is the best panel though and I can't get POSKY's CRJ panel to work properly)

What I really liked about the Flying article is that the author gave us a very good sense of the intense workload of these small jets - something that is captured very, very well in Bill G's terrific panel.

I always though that I was doing something wrong while flying the CRJ's and Embraer's because I would end up flying a "parabolic" vertical profile. Now after reading that article, I see that the climb to altitude followed by a descent to land 10 minutes after level off is about right.Tim13

Thanks to all for the kind words about the ERJ panel. I thought I'd let you know that I will be working on a CRJ panel in the future.Bill
