All A220 and Regional Flying fangirls and boys listen up:
A lot of you probably noticed the seemingly high demand for regional jets in this community when reading through the comments of this year’s “Next Aircraft Poll”.
The best thing about this is: we already do have a very high-quality regional jet, it’s simply missing the most important part!
While released in 2018 and therefore being pretty top-notch standard, it hasn’t got a live cockpit just yet. It was mentioned by the developers multiple times that the cockpit is basically animation-ready. As we all know, the A320, the TBM930, and the Boeing 737 all had their cockpits updated to live instruments, so why not ask for a CRJ Cockpit Update?
While other aircraft in IF’s fleet might be flown more frequently, the CRJ is the go-to choice when flying regional, and that seems to be a thing so many of us want to do!
A live cockpit is just way more of a joy to fly around in, so the CRJ might get more popular just how it was after release!
All recent additions featured a live glass cockpit, that’s the new standard. I’m always a little sad to have such a well designed plane with awesome phyics and great anymations (yes, there even is a highly detailed cabin for all you FA’s around here) sitting infront of me but just without this big extra: moving instruments.
While a full-rework of it’s competitor, the ERJ Family, hasn’t been picked in the poll, a high-quality regional jet is already here - it’s just missing the tip of the iceberg.
