30 mn CRJ9 flight from Montreal to Ottawa

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow pilots

AC8671 86 nm between Montreal and Ottawa, this is just about 20 mn in the air @FL120. I dont know if there is any shortest CRJ regular flight ?

Anyway, perfect to getting used to flying this aircraft, managing the intensive workload from pre flight checks to shutdown.

Short flight = few images. Here are 4 to summarize the mood of this cold, snowy flight.

Looks great. I bought this aircraft only this week. A fair bit of workload compared to the 737 family.

Thank you all for taking the time to comment

This is P3D V4. The more I fly the CRJ the more I enjoy it. Brace yourself for more CRJ flight screenshots in the next weeks 😂

Thank you Ryan. I could not fly without EZCA anymore - it gives you full control over the views, and (at least for me) reduces the need for a trackIR solution.

This is the Aerosoft CRJ I assume? What's your verdict on it so far?

Its the Aerosoft CRJ

After 2 years of turboprop GA I wanted to switch back to regional airliners. But I did not want a full automated Airbus or Boeing, so I selected 2 aircrafts : Majestic Dash 8 and Aerosoft CRJ.

Being tired of turboprop sound and management I went for the CRJ 😂

I bought it a few weeks ago so did not encounter any of the early issues somes users reported.

I did not come across any major bug until now appart from Engine Starter 1 not lighting (happened once) and NAV disconnecting (could be my fault, did not sort this one out).

All in all, it is a great aircraft visually and flight dynamics-wise. Still learning to fly it smoothly but I enjoy every minute of each flight.

Thanks. I never really flew regional airliners before but I always liked the CRJs. Reading some reviews now.

Btw, are you using TomatoShade for the reflections on the CRJ?

You have to keep in mind that the CRJ is not the modern aircraft that can fly by itself from 100 ft above the ground to autolanding.

No auto throttle, advisory VNAV, no auto landing, you have to actually pilot and monitor it constantly. If that is what you are looking for, make the jump !

That's a nice counterpart to the Boeings I usually fly that have all that. Looking forward to some more manual flights.

Oh and I did not answer this : yes, I am using the Tomato advanced reflection profile found here (nice but a bit too reflective):

I have yet to test the reflections profile found on the Aerosoft website (maybe less reflective):
