Most flight simulator fans prefer flights that do not exceed two hours, and for a good reason. The parts of simulated flights considered “fun” are the departure and arrival. That’s why commuters are so popular with flight simulator fans.
The Bombardier CRJ 700 and 900 series are some of the most often used regional airliners today – every 10 seconds, one of them takes off. You will find them at most airports worldwide. Although not very popular with passengers as those seats are indeed very small and you cannot even stand upright if you are tall, airline companies prefer them because they are efficient and reliable. They are still in production, and although the newer models have better seats, larger overhead bins and better sound proofing they will never be really comfortable.
Pilots like to fly them because they are powerful, agile, and a joy to fly manually. It is often described as ‘sporty’. They also demand more flying skill than a modern Airbus or Boeing because the flight management systems are limited, for example: no auto throttle and only advisory vertical navigation.
In our simulators, they were missing for a long time, but the Aerosoft / Digital Aviation CRJ 700/900 X provides the aircraft we have all been waiting for. As with all internal aircraft projects, the CRJ was created with the job of the pilot in mind. It fully focuses on the task of piloting this aircraft. We feel that things that have never happened in real life should not play a major role and that allows us to create a high-end aircraft for a modest price.

Conclusion by AirDailyX.net: "What’s important to understand about this release is that this is a different kind of flying! This is a Canadair Regional Jet. Keyword…”regional”’; It is your quality puddle jumper. If you like the occasional LaGuardia to Boston, or Detroit to Chicago, this is the aircraft for you. It demands your attention and the workload initially will definitely be increased. [..] This is a great buy for the price and the fact that Aerosoft within 24 hours released their first update/hotfix shows the dedication the team is willing to put forth. Since this aircraft is compatible with FSX and P3D v3 & 4, the team has had to fix many initial bugs."
Conclusion by FSXReviews.com: "This airplane, although not being study level, is an absolute joy to fly. It’s a departure from the typical fly-by-the-buttons airplane, and instead asks you to play an active role in flying the plane at all times. Combine this with the stunning model, good performance, and excellent soundset, and you have yourself a plane that is absolutely worth asking price."
