Dornier Do 28 - German twin-engine multipurpose aircraft short takeoff and landing aircraft manufacturer produced «Dornier Flugzeugbau GmbH» with 1959 years.

The Dornier Do 28 was developed by German aircraft manufacturers as a multipurpose aircraft, primarily intended for the German Air Force, however, ultimately, this aircraft, including after a number of improvements, began to be operated in the commercial field of civil aviation. , including for the carriage and transportation of goods, the implementation of passenger transportation, etc.

The design of the airplane Dornier Do 28 based on a military model aircraft Dornier Do 27, however, the German aircraft manufacturers dramatically optimize the design of the aircraft, installed on the aircraft two powerful piston aircraft engine, expanded interior space of the aircraft, making it suitable for most of the goals pursued in civil aviation.

His first flight of the aircraft Dornier Do 28 made in late April 1959 years, thus, the aircraft almost immediately was put into production, which is due to the high popularity, it lasted until the end of 80-ies.

Depending on the version of the aircraft, its occupants can be placed at least 7 people, while for the control of the aircraft only requires one pilot. Aircraft operated in civil aviation to the present moment - it performed on passenger flights on domestic and regional airlines, freight transport is conducted, etc.

As the power plant, on the aircraft models used Dornier Do 28 piston aircraft engines, capable of developing a thrust of 380 hp each, depending on the version of aircraft modifications and production time. Powerful aircraft engines are able to disperse the aircraft up to speed in 320-330 km \ h., At the time. As the maximum flight range of the aircraft is about 1000-1300 kilometers.
