Passenger airliner regional type VFW-Fokker 614 began designed by German aircraft manufacturers in 1966 year. The main reason to start development of the aircraft served as an urgent need of local carriers to use inexpensive but effective aircraft, able to perform air travel on local and regional air routes.

The VFW-Fokker 614 aircraft has a small passenger capacity, however, despite this fact, the operating companies were very interested in using this model, since at a low price it had a great advantage over the use of large aircraft, loaded with only half.

Its first test flight of the aircraft VFW-Fokker 614 has made in mid-July 1971 years, however, all flight-technical criteria planes could satisfy, in view of which was aimed at further refinement, which was even more than for four years, and only 1975 year, the aircraft was officially presented to the public and sent to the release.

Initially the aircraft VFW-Fokker 614 considered aircraft manufacturers as a multipurpose aircraft suitable including transport aboard the cargo, but as a vehicle airplane was not accepted, as in this case could not pay off quickly, in view of which, eventually it became the only aircraft passenger aircraft.

Depending on the layout of the cabin passenger aircraft VFW-Fokker 614, on board can accommodate up to 36 40 passengers that fully satisfies the conditions of operation of the aircraft on the air routes of local and regional importance. Moreover, for control of the aircraft it needed only two people, which in turn reduces the cost of air carriers for extra crew members.

The VFW-Fokker 614 passenger airliner is powered by two Rolls-Royce / Snecma M45H Mk. 501, each of which can develop a thrust of 33,2 kN, which provided the aircraft with sufficient payload, as well as the ability to develop a cruising speed of 650 km / h. The maximum flight range of the VFW-Fokker 614 jet is 1200 kilometers, which is a satisfactory indicator.
