Why, after years flying the darned thing do you continue to use the flight SPOILERS to slow the airplane? I'm getting a little tired of seeing it, frankly. I guess they didn't teach the difference between a speedBRAKE and spolier at ATP or Riddle Diddle. Yet you all think you're da bomb.

Flame away, hosers.

My goodness-I never have considered doing anything else with that handle....

-Besides tearing it off, and slapping you in the head with it!

-Dang, son!

I thought I was using the angle of attack to slow the airplane...

I use the fact that I haven't been laid since September to slow my roll.

Where did this idiocy of using the spoilers is in "bad form" came from?

With the flaps 8 speed now 200kts, flight spoilers might come in handy a little more often. If you don't like to see them, close you shade doofus. What kind of dork stares out the window looking at the wing anyway? Besides that, you must have a Napoleon complex, because anyone taller than 5' 5" can't see out the window anyway! I'll take a trusty CRJ200 any day over the WSCOD...

Dude, the handle is there for a reason: To be used when necessary! Now stop crying!

the only thing funny about this thread is the joke about riddle. That place is a whole other joke thread.

Your type really get on my nerve. Let me guess you're one of those guys that cringes every time someone uses ROGER on the radio?

Your at 250 knots, 10,000 feet. ATC tells you to decent to 4000 feet. And slow to 170. By the time you chop the power wait till you get to 200 knots for flaps, you are now exiting their airspace. In order to comply with ATC you sometimes have no choice.

Not speaking for everybody, but I personally use the spoilers so that I can extend my time aloft, thereby clogging up the airspace with at least one additional RJ for a little bit longer. I've heard the heavy drivers really like it when they get 10/28 because there is a long line of RJ's set up on the inboard here in Atlanta...
