I'm flying for the first time on a CRJ200 and I read that smaller planes are very bumpy & the pilots on smaller aircraft have less flight experience. I'm very scared to fly so if anyone can tell me there experience with a CRJ would be great?

That's a very stable and smooth aircraft. Nothing to be afraid of in the least. The pilots all have to be checked out and certified through the F.A.A. And are just as good if not better than any airline pilot and probably have just as many flight hours. You'll be fine.

I was a pilot of vintage aircraft for almost 50 years ! That's a fine plane and you'll find the pilots to be great at flying her. Sit back and relax ! You'll love it.

I don't know what type of plane it was, but to get to the nearest airport to my grandpa's house, we took a 50-seat plane from Detroit to the small town destination.  I liked it, and there was nothing to be afraid of.  The flight was so short that we barely made it to 15 000 feet, before we had to descend, but there was little turbulence, and it took off and landed smoothly.  They might be bumpier because they are lighter, and have a shorter wingspan.

Sorry I couldn't help more.
