This is the first paint scheme that complements the -700's lines. Both Horizon and Eagle's new machines resemble a Fisher-Price toy.

WOW!

It brings a tear to my eye. I'm glad to finally see it on property and can't wait to see it in the skies. Anyone notice the "EV" ending on the registration?

The "EV" registration is due to the fact that there are not enough "AS" numbers left. The "EV" comes from the code Delta uses to designate ASA in the Deltamatic reservation system.

Just a bit of useless triva for you!

I had a chance to tour N701EV in Macon the other day, very nice airplane!


:D

Duh!

I am well aware of the significance of the "EV." My point was that ASA is far from using all N---AS registrations. The fleet is around 100 aircraft and there are tons of numbers left to be used. Just curious as to why the switch. There are no N7--AS planes out there for confusion.

More useless trivia...

700AS Cessna 310/Aircraft Support and Services
701AS Lear 35/Airnet Systems
702AS Maule M7/Williams Machine and Tool Co.
703AS Boeing 737/??

...the list goes on. This would explain why we turned to the EV for the -700 tail numbers.

I believe that Alaska Airlines uses AS in their tail numbers.
I Think...

Thank you much

Thanks for the clarification... Personally, I like "EV"... I'll be happy to see it on property.

I personally don't care what letters they put on them,
just as long as they keep comin'!! Every one of
'em that shows up means a better line for we slugs on
the 50 seater!!

That will be ironic if these airplanes end up being flown by the Delta pilots. See my thread regarding their re-negotiation of scope.

It sure looks a lot like a MD80...Major Airlines were too big anyway!

EV stands for ASA's airline designator code. All of the 70 seaters will be using it. Don't know exactly why but like the previous posters have stated, keep em comming!!! I sure hope that the DALPA/Delta hearing in DC doesn't change much with our aircraft. DAPLA is trying to get them while they are fighting the furlough problems. I hope they get their guys back off of furlough, but I also hope they dont change things at ASA/Comair. Time will tell.

slats?

I thought the CRJ700 was going to have slats/leading edge devices? From the photos (even when zoomed in using Photoshop) it looks like the wing is identical to the CRJ200.

When retracted, the LEDs are hard to see even from a foot away. But they are there.

For a better look, click here, then follow the links to Regional Aircraft, image gallery, CRJ 700, image number 16.

Great pic's, sure would like to see that 90 seater at mainline or with us at ASA and mainline guys flying them. Stange that it is only 86 seats, wonder what the rationale is for that.

I heard that here at CMR, we will be receiving our -700's as fast as we can so that DAL won't be able to negotiate something to get them.
I had also heard there was a problem at ASA about receiving them as quickly as you would like because of some contractual policy, do any ASA pilots know what this might be?
