I saw a thread for high wing vs. low wing on general aviation but wondered what everyone thought for regional jets and props. Personally I dislike the 328 / 328jet high wing and Avro for looks, I generally like the low wing, except from the Dash.

I happen to like the high-wing design of the 328 and 328Jet. However, I don't care for the Avro RJ series. Four jet engines on a high wing makes the aircraft appear top heavy. I also happen to like the Dash 8. My least favorite high wing, however, is an "oldie", the Fairchild-Hiller FH-227. Noisiest dang aircraft I've ever flown on.

The low-wing style has been made more popular in recent years with the addition of the blended winglets. The 73G and 738 have the best winglets. The Bombardier BD-700 also has great winglets, as does most of the CRJ's.



Long live the RJ!

AZ jet geek.

I guess I don't mind the ATR high wing either - just not as big a fan of the ATR as the Dash. I think that high wings that slope aren't attractive to me. The Avro especially with 4 engines it reminds me of a flying tank or at least hummer of the sky.

The ATR is the opnly prop and high wing I have been in. I must say that it is a very comfortable airctaft.
