Plane Development Aerospatiale N262 began in 1956 year, while, despite its relatively small seating capacity - the aircraft could accommodate up to 29 passengers, the aircraft used quite popular - its operation was carried out at least 20 the world's air carriers, and according to some sources in operation is currently underway 3 aircraft.

The power plant of the Aerospatiale N262 aircraft is represented by two Pratt & Whitney turboprop aircraft engines (depending on the version), which developed a total power of 850 hp. each, allowing you to move at speeds up to 450 km / h.

Despite the rather impressive size of the aircraft, the aircraft was very limited maximum distance route, which was about 1100 kilometers, which is why the aircraft often used in local and regional routes.

As noted by the pilots, the plane Aerospatiale N262 has a very good management, and virtually no complaints - except are only the low flight performance, and in that case if the aircraft was initially well-designed, the need for it to manifest in present

Initially, in the year 1959, 17-was presented to the local prototype of this aircraft - Max Holste MH.250 Super Broussard, however, due to some technical problems it was decided to continue work on the aircraft.

Subsequently, on the basis of the first prototype, another test version was created - Max Holste MH.260 Super Broussard - a 23-seat aircraft, which is an improved version of the primary prototype.

In November 1962 years, the French aircraft manufacturers have presented a model Aerospatiale N262, which became the basic version of the aircraft.

In 1964, on the basis of the main production version, an improved modification was presented - Aerospatiale N262A, however, due to a number of problems, the model was certified only in 1965, which is why it turned out that the Aerospatiale N262B aircraft actually began to operate earlier than the version, based on which it was created. In both versions, it was decided to abandon the use of Pratt & Whitney engines and replace them with Turbomeca Bastan VIC power plants.

Modification Aerospatiale N262S Fregate was equipped with a new, more reliable, power-plant in a turboprop aircraft engines Turbomeca Bastan VIIC, and in addition, the wingspan was increased here.

Version Aerospatiale N262D Fregate is a modification of the utility for the French Air Force, in essence repeats the version of C.

Aerospatiale N262E Fregate special version designed for the French naval fleet.

Aerospatiale Mohawk 298 is a specially designed version powered by powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-45 turboprop engines for Allegheny Airlines.
