London City Airport Question

Thu Mar 01, 2001 12:07 pm

Does anyone know if the Embraer ERJ-135/145 and the Canadair Regional Jets can land at London City Airport?

if the ARJ can, the CRJ should be able to do it as well.

London City does not allow thrust reversing.

I believe the only Jet airliners certified for operation from London-City are the BAE146/RJ family and the Fokker F70.

AFAIK, neither the CRJ nor the ERJ-145 have been approved for operations from LCY, in particular for the steep approach. Also, neither were intended for short-field ops, and the ERJ-145 was retricted operating out of Southampton's 6000ft runway before the aircraft's rudder was given more authority in event of an engine failiure. The ERJ-145 lacks leading-edge slats and most do not have reverse-thrust as it is optional, increasing runway requirements.
