Highest i've ever been in a 'small' plane was:
Dash-8-100 Air Canada Jazz DTW
= 16000 ft
CRJ-200ER Delta Connection Op. By ASA, CVG
-FNT = 26000 ft
Highest i've ever been period was FL370 on Continental LAX
in the 757-200, and also Air Canada CYYZ-EGLL on the A330-300.

IAD-GSO on an Independence CRJ. 41,000 feet for the short 50 minute flight-- there were lots of storms around!
Hmm Are you sure it was FL410 in a CRJ-200? Perhaps FL310, but I highly doubt it was FL410 for a 215 mile flight. By the time a CRJ-200 would reach FL410 with a decent amount of passengers and cargo aboard, it'd probably be 60-80 miles from GSO
, and would have to do a steep descent. If there were storms in the area, they were probably also in GSO
, so climbing would have done nothing since the plane would still descend through the storms... I've never heard of a CRJ/ERJ cruising that high unless they were flying empty and on a 400+ mile flight...
Flying a plane is no diff. from riding a bicycle. Its just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes. -'Airplane'
