    At our shop we only do approaches with vertical guidance, so there aren't many different types possible. ILS or VGP (RNAV, RNP, VOR with coded angle), and that's it. All of the VGP approaches are flown essentially the same, acknowledging that RNPs have some additional setup required.

    We do not do stepdown approaches anymore. So no LOC or BC approaches, and no approaches with no coded descent angle.

    My IOE was mostly visual approaches. A couple ILS approaches including a CAT II but mostly visuals. Oh and lots of holding waiting for King Air drivers to cancel their IFR flight plans after landing.

    We have the IAN that makes any approach look like an ILS, but it's only on the 747-8. Would be pretty cool if everyone knew how to use it!

    That stuff is too fancy for the CRJ to handle:)

    I actually flew a couple 900s with VNAV. So it's possible.

    All our 900s and some of the 700s have VNAV. Pretty cool.

    Really made a difference vs watching the damn snowflake without any numbers associated with it.

    "How do you do vertical planning at an outstation?"

    "10000', 30 nm, 250 knots."

    "But what do you put in the FMC—"

    "10000', 30 nm, 250 knots."

    "Oh."
