Hello, recently whenever I flew the CRJ it’s seemed to turn right or left and skid off the runway. I did check the Tutorial, and I am aware of the flaps trim ect. This happens durning take off at about 120 and more kts. My yoke is perfectly in position. Anyone know why this is happening? Thanks.
The CRJ is quite difficult to control in a crosswind. Are you using the rudder?
Might be a crosswind blowing you off course. Use the rudder to compensate.
This is most likely because of the winds. I would recommend you to watch the crosswind tutorial for the CRJ-700 again and check if you do it right.
I’m not using the rudder. If it’s crosswinds, anyone know how to handle them during takeoff?
Yes, use rudder to keep your plane aligned with the center of the runway.
Thanks. I’ll take note.
Use the rudder it is your best friend! Also for Takeoff if you have a left crosswind put left alerion into the wind with right rudder and for a right crosswind use right alieron down
for the CRJ , you want to “uncheck” Auto-Coordination in the system setup in General tab
All of the above and practice it takes a few hours to get used to it the CRJ is powerful and light needs a light touch with small movements this morning I couldn’t take over or land very well now I can do both in all kinds of weather
MaxSez: Quartering/Cross Wind Procedure: Step 1. Cross Control, Use the Rudder sparingly. Step 2. Windward Wing Down. A landing is 2 steps to: 1. ? (Yr Ansewer) 2. Flair.
Gday Day ? Pilots … poor technique, speed and loss of situational
awareness will kill you.
I indeed think its crosswinds
This happens to me very often unless there is literally no weather. Just have to compensate with the rudder.
I’ve got nothing to add other than I have this problem too and it annoys the crap out of me.
Don’t get discouraged, keep practicing in solo with crosswinds and use rudder control to help.
What I tend to do is I allign my plane with the center of the runway, I then will push my phone down to keep my plane on the ground until I have reached VR (Rotate), I then will gently slide the rudder against the cross wind as I lift the nose off the ground. Once you’ve lifted off into the air gently release the rudder. Make sure to not push the rudder all the way or it will cause some problems.
MaxSez: The 700 is a racehorse. It’s light and maneuverable due to its Blowers & Wing design. The performence data for the 700 is available on the Web if you take the time. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again Google is your friend.
Fight data presented on the Forum is often unreliable. As the man said “Trust but Varify.
FYI, Here is the most recent take off and landing parameters for the 700 published in the Public Domaine. If you want the official manufacturers Pilots Operation Handbook for the 700,it’s available at cost after a un-demanding Google search.

Always Check yr Wt/Bal during pre-Flt & Approach. G’day…
Gotta admit I find myself needing to practice takeoffs too with the new CRJ. Definitely need some rudder play.
