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.

Powerplant Aerospatiale N262 aircraft is represented by two turboprop aircraft engines Pratt & Whitney (depending on version), who developed a total capacity of 850 hp each, allowing you to navigate with a speed of 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 - the Max Holste MH.260 Super Broussard - the 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 year, on the basis of the main production version was presented to the improved modification - Aerospatiale N262A, however, due to a number of problems, certified model was only 1965 year, which is why it turned out that the plane Aerospatiale N262B became actually operated earlier than the version on the basis of which it was created. In both versions, it was decided to abandon the use of Pratt & Whitney engines and replace them with power plants Turbomeca Bastan VIC.

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 - specially designed version, equipped with powerful turboprop engines Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-45 for Allegheny Airlines airline.
