    To be honest, the X is just another airplane. It won't be the fastest thing out there forever, and to go that fast, trade offs had to be made. Namely slow speed handling.

    What makes it good is the company. They treat us very well, and as a result nearly every pilot on the property busts hump to get the job done. That's the main reason I enjoy going to work. Flying the X is an added bonus.

    That CRJ-700 Emu flies is no slouch though. Probably the best RJ out there as far as payload and performance, and 2nd behind the Dash 8 overall.
    Do they have reading comprehension classes at riddle?

    I have yet to kick anyone/anything off for weight and balance and that thing can move when it needs to. I saw 4600fpm sustained climb out of OKC with 18 people on board.

    I love hearing the mainline pilots complain about getting stuck behind an RJ...yet in cruise they're always doing something like .75/.76 and we're normally flight planned at .80 unless parts are missing.

    The 200 on the other hand.....different story entirely.

    Envy you man, I'm sure that is an amazing plane to fly. Kind of ironic that Citations are both the slowest and fastest of business jets!

    A few of them "moving picture" from yesterday.

    I got a new point and shoot camera that takes videos. Took a potato chip bag clip, superglued a tripod mount on it, and its the perfect camera mount for the glareshield. Here's my takeoff from SWF and my landing in ATL. The landing one is blurry because I accidentally had it in macro mode, but you can still see what is going on.

    Takeoff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu-nBzi-08Q

    Landing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSN6WVnCFgk (added some music to this one)

    We passed Singapore Airlines 777-212(ER) 9V-SVC as we were heading from SYD-to CHC. It was heading from CHC to SIN.
