Now I've noticed that although the ERJ-145 and Do-328 Jet are classified as regional jets, their capabilities do not seem to match that name. For example, the BAe 146 can fly into London City Airport with a runway less than 4,000 ft and it is a much larger aircraft. My question is, How Come ?
Are their Vref (Landing Speed) & Vr (Take-off Speed) higher and therefore require longer rolling distances or are the brakes on the 146 more efficient ?
P.S. I also have a question regarding "Becoming a Pilot", and I would appreciate any guidance regarding this subject
