Difference between Canadair CRJ200 and CL-65?

Noticed today that my Air Wisconsin Canadair 'CRJ' was labeled a CL-65 instead of the usual CRJ200 on the seatback pocket card. FA even called it a CL-65, although FlightAware calls it a CRJ200. However, other than the blue seats, the seat layout looked the same. This page suggests that CL65 may be the designator for the CRJ100/200/700 series, but beyond that, I'm wondering why they'd call it a CL65 instead of a CRJ200?

One other thing I noticed: Row 2 looks to have 1" addl pitch vs Rows 3+, although this is not indicated on SeatGuru. Row 2 is under airport control.

I believe CR-65 is the "model number" and CRJ-200 is the "marketing name". They are the same thing.

Here's a link to the discussion of the same topic on airliners:

Thanks for the info. From the posts on that link, it sounds like 'Air Whisky' uses the CL-65 designation instead of CRJ-200 for some reason. However, both my link and a post in yours do suggest that CL-65 is a 'type designator' for pilots of the CRJ 'series', which includes the CRJ-200, but not necessarily exclusively. The pilot-speak is beyond me, but I guess as far as US goes, it's the same bird.

"Type designator" probably refers to a FAA type rating, which is required for Captains on anything over 12,500 lb max gross weight or turbine powered (both of which would encompass the CRJ series). If this is the case with the CL-65 designation, the Captain's pilot license would have "CL-65" listed in the "Type Ratings" section, just as mine has "B-737" listed instead of B-737-200, B-737-300, B-737-400, etc.

Type ratings and Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certficates are now required by all pilots in USA 14 CFR 121 operations, Captains and First Officers alike, as of August 1, 2013. This is a result of Public Law 111-216 / Doc. No. FAA-2010-0100 which created the new 14 CFR 121.436 federal regulations.

Correct although I thought that went into effect later this year.
