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 was equipped with TPE33114GR / HR turboprop engines manufactured by AlliedSignal, with a capacity of 1650 hp each. These motors are located on the wing of the aircraft in nacelles, the design of which has also undergone changes. As propellers on BAe aircraft. Jetstream 41, five-blade propellers manufactured by the American company "McCauley Propeller Systems" are used. The landing gear of the new aircraft has been reinforced, now its main struts have twin wheels. The cockpit has also been upgraded. The aircraft uses a digital avionics complex EFIS Primus II, manufactured by Honeywell Aerospace, consisting of four multifunctional displays for displaying flight information and the status of onboard systems.

Light turboprop airliner BAe made its maiden flight. Jetstream 41 flew 25 September 1991. Three aircraft were built for flight and ground tests. During flight tests, BAe. Jetstream 41, has flown about 1790 hours. After the completion of all tests, on November 23, 1992, the aircraft was issued a European JAA certificate of airworthiness. The first delivery into service to air carriers was made two days later - on November 25, 1992. In April 1993, an American FAA flight certificate was received.

Production aircraft BAe. Jetstream 41, as standard, can accommodate 29 passenger seats in its cabin. At maximum load, its range is 1433 kilometers. The cruising speed of the liner is 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 mid-1991, work was underway on a project for the Jetstream 51, which would have an elongated fuselage compared to the Jetstream 41 and could carry up to 39 passengers. But this modification was never made.

In May 1997, British Aerospace announced that it was discontinuing production of Jetstream 41 aircraft. Over the course of production, one hundred Jetstream 41 light short-haul aircraft have been built.
