Fleet question

Post by UAL478 Robert Morrison » March 19th, 2021, 2:40 pm

Just a curious question for the Aerosoft CRJ for MSFS flyers. Would we ever add the CRJ-550 to our fleet and flight schedule?

Our VPs Fleet and Schedules have the final say but here's my 2¢...

Our fleet is primarily freeware, giving pilots a cost-free entry into flying our fleet. I could not find a freeware CRJ550 for P3D/FSX or XP11. As some noted in XP forum posts, the 550 is a 700 with fewer seats and a lower MTOW so enquiries were deflected to 700 freeware.

Some VAs have stopped downloading real world schedules because of the reduced air travel during the pandemic. I haven't heard if vUAL is doing that. Regardless, I believe there is less upkeep being done on our current website and more being done towards working out data transfers (pilot records, schedules, etc.,) to the new website. (I saw your other post asking for an update on the new site; I'll leave that for Gary and IT to address.)

I added a Fly The Line CRJ award, which can be completed in the MSFS/Aerosoft 550, if you can get one of our ACARS packages to work with MSFS. See viewtopic.php?f=19&t=11456 for more info.

Cheers.

Robert,

Is it flown by UAL, including its regionals, or Star Alliance?

Wikipedia shows United Express/GoJet has 31 and nine more on order. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Ex ... _and_fleet

Wikipedia also says UA is the only operator, through GoJet:
On 6 February 2019, Bombardier launched the CRJ550, based on the CRJ700, with 50 seats in three classes. The launch customer, United Airlines, ordered 50 aircraft configured with 10 first class, 20 Economy Plus and 20 economy seats. The aircraft were to be operated under the United Express brand by regional partner GoJet Airlines. The CRJ550 has a lower maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) than the CRJ700, to comply with scope clauses in US pilot contracts, and a lower maximum landing weight (MLW). It received type certification in the second half of 2019. The initial 50 aircraft will be sourced from existing CRJ700s, rather than being newly constructed. On 7 August 2019, United Airlines' regional partner GoJet Airlines took delivery of the aircraft and began with a crew familiarization flight to Chicago-O’Hare International Airport (ORD).

FlightRadar24 shows United (they don't differentiate UAX) has 37 CRJ550s. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/airl ... -ual/fleet
