So, I tried the CRJ-200 last night for the first time. I manually fly every landing in IF.
This is the only plane I could not keep on a nose-up descent. And I'm not talking 'slightly below level'. If I put any flap extension past the initial 8, the nose was pitched down severely, 10-15 degrees.
Does anyone have any tips on how to maintain a proper nose-up orientation? I checked online, and it seemed to suggest that configuring for landing should begin 70 nm out and be done very slowly and in very incremental steps. I'm not sure that really fits in an IF environment.
(I should also note that with 100% trim, I still had the maximum of pink line below the middle line. Clearly I'm doing something wrong, but as I said, all of my landings are manual, so it's not as if I'm unfamiliar with Trim and flaps, speeds, etc.)
