An Embraer fuselage (cabin trainer) was crammed into the ATL Flight Safety building today...Why? ATL FSI has always been a CRJ training facility. I'm confused. It looked like an old CHQ frame in Delta colors.

Uh maybe cause LXJT is under control of that big hangar across the street. Just a matter of time before LXJT bends to Master Jerry, a matter of time I say. ������

If it was a E-175 sim being installed that would be more interesting.

It's actually a 200 cabin trainer. They cut the nose off it when it was scrapped and did a bad rhinoplasty.

They tried selling it for $50 on Craigslist but couldn't. Just waiting to scrap it. Anything related to the E145 has the resale value of a pet rock.

Incorrect. It is a 145. The windows and panels are all 145 as well as the front end, not CRJ.

Definitely NOT for LXJT use as we already have one in our training center.

Why do they need it? Take it to the desert. 145's are history.

As they come off contract at L-XJT they will sign a new lease agreement and have L-ASA pilots/flight attendants fly them instead. This will also help offset loses of any CRJ2s and the company gets the cost savings they needed to make flying the aircraft viable. Just a wild @ss guess

"So, did you hear?"

"About what?"

"The new 145 cabin trainer in Atlanta, that's what!"

Incorrect. The XR's will be flying somewhere long after the last CRJ is turned into scrap. Although it won't be with the current pilots......

Probably just a move to consolidate flight attendant training.

The contract was up with the CRJ trainer and ASA did not renew it, hence it got yanked out. FSI put the ERJ trainer in there for basic FA training.
