With all this new security, what is being done with the cockpit doors of Je32s?
In my experience they are usually left open, but has this been changed?

Actually they and the Beech 1900 don't really have doors, just dividers. That is a huge concern among flight crews and the answer is no one really knows. Its like teh double or stronger doors. Everyone is in favor of it, but in a lot of planes there just isn't room for them, the EMB-120's door can't be closed when there is a jump seater and the SF340 and CRJ couldn't fit another door or even that much thicker of one. It is a tough fix in a lot of planes and someone is going to need to come up with a good diea real soon.
