    <P>The incident yesterday of an Air Canada Jazz pilot who found himself trapped outside the cockpit of a Bombardier CRJ-100 after a trip to the toilet has awoken debate into the effectiveness of security measures as we head towards the fifth anniversary of 9/11.</P> <P>Yesterday, passengers on the Jazz service from the Canadian capital Ottawa-Hull to Winnipeg, Manitoba watchjed in amazement as the captain was trapped in the cabin after the door locks on the reinforced cockpit doors malfunctioned. Crew members were forced to take the door off its hinges to let him back in after the incident, which happened 30min before the scheduled arrival of the aircraft in Winnipeg.</P> <P>Air Canada Jazz spokeswoman says the first officer had remained on the flight deck throughout, and that the CRJ-100 had not started its descent when the incident occurred. Jazz says the first officer could have landed the flight by himself, and there had been no danger. </P> <P>Transport Canada is not&nbsp;inveshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Air-Canada-Jazz-pilot-trapped-on-wrong-side-of-cockpit-door-incident-re-opens-security-questions-208775/
  • Comair studies reduction of regional jet fleet

    News | 28 Aug 2006 23:00 | Mary Kirby

    <P>US regional carrier Comair could see as many as 77 more Bombardier regional jets, including its entire CRJ700 fleet, culled from its feeder deal with parent Delta Air Lines should its bid to secure a portion of its current flying fail.</P> <P>Delta last week issued a request for proposals (RFP) for the operation of 143 regional jets, including up to 43 70-seaters and up to 50 50-seat jets already operated by Delta Connection carriers Comair, Mesa Air Group's Freedom Airlines unit, and Republic Airways' Chautauqua Airlines and Shuttle America subsidiaries.</P> <P>The RFP represents a portion of the Delta Connection network that has not been affirmed in the bankrupt major's Chapter 11 proceedings. Delta is also soliciting bids for the operation of up to 50 76-seat aircraft that the carrier can add to the Connection fleet "to meet the changing demands of the network". Comair says its 27 owned CRJ700s - representing its entire fleet of 70-seat regional jets - are included in Delta's Rhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comair-studies-reduction-of-regional-jet-fleet-208743/
  • Progress unchecked

    G&uuml;nter Endres/London Regional carriers in North America and Europe have thrived thanks to their links with major operators and the introduction of jets. Now even smaller operators are being tied in to the emerging global alliances <p>The resurgence of regional airlines continues, largely through a growing re-alignment with major carriers and a shift towards new jet aircraft. But airspace congestion, tougher environmental legislation and the threat of taxation could have a negative effect on demand in the next few years. </p> <p>The Airline Business passenger ranking of the world's top 100 regional airlines again paints a positive picture, with double digit growth rates being maintained in Europe and the USA, outstripping by some distance those of their larger and more illustrious contemporaries. But one of the more significant aspects of the list is the fact that all but a handful of the top 100 airlines are affiliated, through equity involvement, franchising or important codeshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Progress-unchecked-65489/

    The entr&eacute;e of the 30/40-seat jet offers the opportunity to focus on modernising the lower end of the regional aircraft fleet <p>Paul Lewis/Washington DC </p> <p><img src='../Assets/GetAsset.aspx?ItemID=3422' /></p> <p>The recent introduction of the new Embraer RJ-135 (above) and Fairchild Aerospace 328JET has heralded the entry into service of a completely new class of aircraft. The new 30/40-seat regional jets promise to revolutionise a part of the US market largely overlooked by the growing debate over scope clause restrictions and proposed 70-seat and larger jets. </p> <p>It has been a surprisingly low-key debut for the ERJ-135 at Continental Express and American Eagle, and for the 328JET at Skyway Airlines. Their introduction, however, could have far-reaching implications for the 1,200 or so turboprops in US airline service, building on the foundations established by 50-seat jets. </p> <p>According to US Regional Airline Association (RAA) president Walt Coleman, the nhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Turbofan-time-56323/
