Is it true that there are no LEDs on the CRJ -200s.
If so would it imply that these aircrafts would require a longer Runway length for T/O,compared to if they were manufactured with LEDs.
Also what was the reason.

Think of the brighter side!

It is true... there are none.

ASA flies the -700 from ATL to EYW (4800 ft) because the 200 can't takeoff from EYW on the way home (the 700 is still restricted)

As for the reason... The Challenger didn't have them.

LEDs = leading edge devices, like slats?

Hey ya'll... LED's = leading edge devices like slats or Krueger flaps. The CRJ-700 does have them...the 200 and 440 don't. This is also the reason why the CRJ looks like its diving for the runway at a faster speed...because it is.  Smile

I thought the decision on whether or not to put LEDs on the aircraft's wings was more a function of size and weight than anything else. I don't think the Fokkers have them either, and I'm not sure about the Embraers. I also recall a story sometime ago about Bombardier offering a retro-fit for the 200s, but the airlines balked due to the cost.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

The Challenger and the CRJ (emphasis on the latter) don't really have a need for the slower speeds that leading-edge high-lift devices would produce. Most airfields that the CRJ utilizes have sufficient runway length for most all operations.

I always wonderd why when I fly on the CR2s they take so long to get airborn, seems to me that the A320s get in the air faster then that darn CR2! AM I right?

Comair used to operate CRJ-200's out of EYW. Did it a few times myself. Made it no problem, especially with 20 degrees of flaps. Hell, Eastern used to take 727's in and out of EYW. Short-field performance in the CRJ is at least average, however you can't land in EYW with a wet runway. The reason you get the perception that CRJ's spend so much time on the runway is because of reduced thrust. GE and Bombardier have calculated the minimum thrust setting required to safely depart the pavement while saving the engines. If there's 10000 ft of runway, no sense in aging an engine prematurely. Trust me, a CRJ can operate short field.
