BAe Jetstream 41
Short-haul BAe. Jetstream 41, is a twin-engined plane turbovintelyatornym intended for local airlines.
This aircraft was developed by the British Aircraft Building Concern «British Aerospace», as a continuation of work on the modification of aircraft BAe. Jetstream 31 / 32.
Work on the new aircraft were launched in May 1989 years 30 to create-local airliner for short in routing. The main reason for the development of BAe aircraft. Jetstream 41, was lower than the competition in this market with aircraft Dornier 328, Saab 340 and Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia.
BAe. The Jetstream 41, differs from its predecessor primarily extended to 4,88 meter fuselage, which was re-designed with the addition of two additional sections. The first section, the size of 2,51 meters, has been added in front of the wing and the second section, the size of 2,37 meters, was placed behind the fuselage. Wing BAe. Jetstream 41, has been strengthened and is now attached to the lower part of the fairing, which is located under the fuselage of the aircraft. In addition, the bearing surfaces of new aircraft differ enlarged scale, a larger area and improved mechanization.
The aircraft were fitted turboprops TPE33114GR / HR production «AlliedSignal», capacity of 1650 hp These motors are located in the wing of the aircraft in the nacelle, which also changed the design. As the screws on BAe aircraft. Jetstream 41, used the five-bladed propellers production «McCauley Propeller Systems» American company. The chassis of the new aircraft has been strengthened, and now its main stand are twin wheels. The cockpit was also upgraded. The aircraft used digital avionics EFIS Primus II, «Honeywell Aerospace» manufactured, consisting of four multi-function display to display flight information and status of on-board systems.
His first flight of a light turboprop airliner BAe. The Jetstream 41 25 September 1991 made a year. For the flight and ground tests three aircraft were built. During the flight test, BAe. Jetstream 41, 1790 hours flown order. After completion of all tests, November 23 1992, the aircraft was issued by the European JAA certificate of fitness for flight. First delivery in operation by air carriers was completed in two days - November 25 1992 years. In April 1993 has been received and the American flight certificate FAA.
Serial aircraft BAe. Jetstream 41, as standard allows you to put in their own cabin 29 seats. With a maximum load of its range is 1433 kilometers. Cruising speed liner 482 kilometers per hour.
In addition to the basic model, is designed to carry up to 30 people, it was built and several aircraft for administrative purposes. Business aircraft modification, is designed to carry up to 14 people in a comfortable cabin.
In the middle of the year 1991 were working on the Jetstream aircraft 51 a project that would have lengthened fuselage than the Jetstream 41, and allowed to carry up to 39 passengers. But this modification is made and has not been.
In May 1997, the company «British Aerospace», announced the termination of production of the Jetstream aircraft 41. Total production time was built a hundred light short-haul aircraft Jetstream 41.
