Why? The view would just scare us!



(BTW, higher time guys aren't immune either. . .)

as XJ said....it'll probably get worse before it gets better...don't know about the CRJ, but the ERJ visuals were considered one of the "difficult" things to do, regardless of flight time...don't have much of a reference for pitch attitude, but after a little practice, all works out...did you tell the kids to "look outside" hopefully by a hundred feet up or so, they were...but well....ya never know.

Imagine if they had to fly a Tac Overhead..."Eagleflight report 2 mile initial, break over the numbers."

I was at Eagle many moons ago. What's the upgrade time on the 70 running now? (I assumed you were at AE from your screen name)
