FLIGHT BLOG #17 – ERJ-145 / KDFW-KHOU / Review and Flight




I am falling in love with the ERJ-145 from Wilco Publishing. While not as sophisticated as a PMDG aircraft it has enough bells and whistles to keep flight realism fans placated. A gorgeous virtual cockpit, fully programmable FMS computer and 20 more FPS that the 737NGX make this a highly desirable aircraft in my opinion.

We take her up today for a full shake down cruise from KDFW to KHOU in Texas. I reveal some of the flight prep I do then do a full start up, taxi, takeoff, flight and landing.

To put this aircraft's difficulty in perspective; I have learned how to start it, operate it (for the most part) and hand fly land the aircraft in just 7 days. The PMDG 737NGX took me 6 months to get down to the level I have it at and I still haven't learned everything about it and hand flying it on landings still gives me sweaty palms.

If you are looking for a good jet with intermediate skill evel requirements to operate this is it. She's zippy, she's responsive and just looks cool. There are many liveries available for it from many world wide carriers.

Hop on board! Let's take a ride!
