Agreed. Every plane I've ever flown lands better heavy, from the mighty 172 up to the 767. Best landing I ever had in an ERJ was an emergency landing where we were 4000lbs over max landing weight.

Interesting, I found the E175 to be easier to land light, along with the 73.

Also the best landing Iíve ever had was in high gusting winds in Denver. So idk.

The 73 is easier to land. Harder to land well..... Flare to land, squat to pee in the 73.

Just putting it out there for any out of work 145 drivers. An agency in Hong Kong is looking for pilots typed and current within last 12 months for a start up in SE Asia somewhere. PM me as I don't think I can put the agency name on APC.

I wish all the best to everyone at XJT. I wish I had expressed that sooner.
We had a great time working with scheduling running Smartpref for you. Really a work hard, get it right, but have fun mentality willing to go the extra mile.
Some of the best years of my business career was building the application for you folks.

Take care.
