Saab 2000 - Swedish passenger turboprop aircraft. Serially produced and developed by Saab. One of the fastest turboprop aircraft of the world, cruising speed - about 665 kilometers per hour, the speed is comparable to the turbo variants. Lengthened version of the aircraft Saab 340.
Russian airline operates the flight.
The company used the model SAAB S340, as the basis for the creation of a new high-speed turboprop aircraft pyatidesyatimestnogo liner SAAB 2000. The beginning of the program was the first order 15.12.1988 twenty-five aircraft of the air carrier Crossair (Krosseyr). Draft project SAAB 2000 1989 the end of the year was completed. Over Saab 2000 worked different companies.
CASA (Spain) designed and collected the wings. Finnish Valmet (Valmet) built entirely elevators and empennage, and British company Westland (Westland) was responsible for the fuselage tail. To supply the cabin chosen set of electronic aviation equipment Collins Proline (Collins Proline) The airplane has a comparative silence in the cabin, which is achieved by using a special noise reduction system. Living Aviation airliner designed to 105 passengers.
To intensify sales (through the introduction of new methods and not just to increase production capacity), the company SAAB introduced the concept of "use of secondary airfields." In other words, the company planned to build a plane that can fly at a speed 665km / h (360morskih miles / hour; 413mil / h) at a distance of more 1852km (1000morskih miles; 1150mil) that can be compared with the speed of BAe 146 aircraft (Avro RJ). Guaranteed to climb like a jet plane: 11 minutes - time naboravysoty 20000 feet (6096m).
In a power plant intended to use the engine General Electric (GE) GE38, a turbofan engine Pratt & Whitney (Pratt & Whitney) PW300. As a result, together with the aviation company Krosseyr company SAAB has chosen turboprop engine Allison (Allison) GMA 2100, which rotates six-bladed screws Dowty (Doughty) with a low noise level. The first cutting of metal in February 1990 years in Linköping, and made his first prototype flew 26.03.1992.

The program checks the four airplanes started in the second instance (SE-002), who participated in the certification of handling and stability. The aircraft made a large number of flights in adverse weather conditions and at high temperatures, flew twice to Spain.
The first copy was built by the standards of the aircraft in the series, was the SE-003, with which all the systems were certified, calibration autopilot occurred in the middle of 1993 years. Flight experiments were carried out on the functional reliability of the aircraft (SE-004), they became part of the audit program, in line with her total flight time of aircraft exceeded 1200 hours. All flight characteristics, guaranteed by SAAB, improved or sustained.
Distances mileage and reduced run-up to 100-200 meters. The plane climbs 6 100 meters in less than eight minutes after release of the wheels. Aircraft SAAB 2000 to prove it easy to set a world record for aircraft of its class on the climb (formerly owned aircraft Grumman (Grumman) E-2 and was ten minutes). Features distance and weight of standard serial aircraft were even higher than expected. Installed cruising speed at an altitude reached 8534km 665 meters / hour, is higher than expected. The plane in a dive without adversely affecting the speed record set 794km / h. Since cruising speed exceeds 665km / h. SAAB2000 - one of the fastest turboprop aircraft in the world. The power plant includes two 6-bladed engines AE2100 Rolls-Royce.
In the cabin of the aircraft and fifty passenger seats with a layout 2 + 1 and is equipped with an active noise reduction system, which consists of 36 72 acoustic transmitters and microphones. The distance between rows of seats - 81 centimeter. International requirements for noise levels are exceeded at 9,1 decibels. The company has created a unique antinoise system, which took place on the plane SAAB 340 flight tests. This system is provided with a plurality of microphones that are installed for the interior trim and capture the noise, and then generate the opposite waves of identical length, which makes it possible to effectively "turn off" the external acoustic vibration and impact.
The company initially predicted that the market at the end of the century will require new 1400- 50 and 40-local aviation aircraft, expected in connection with the sale of aircraft 400 SAAB 2000. Her customers became aviation companies and Krosseyr Deutsche BA.
