Hello, this is an aircraft that I think would be a great addition to Infinite flight because it is a short haul airliner, which we need more in infinite flight… This is a remake of the previously closed one.
Brief Introduction to the RJ-146
The British Aerospace 146 is a short-haul jet that was manufactured in the United Kingdom by British Aerospace, later part of BAE Systems. Production ran from 1983 until 2002. Manufacture of an improved version known as the Avro RJ began in 1992. A further-improved version with new engines, the Avro RJX , was announced in 1997, but only two prototypes and one production aircraft were built before production ceased in 2001. With 387 aircraft produced, the Avro RJ/BAe 146 is the most successful British civil jet airliner programme.
The BAE 146/Avro RJ is a high-wing cantilever monoplane with a T-tail. It has four [turbofan] engines mounted on pylons underneath the wings, and has retractable tricycle landing gear. The aircraft has very quiet operation, and has been marketed under the name Whisperjet It sees wide usage at small, city-based airports such as London City Airport. In its primary role, it serves as a regional jet, short-haul airliner or regional airliner, while examples of the type are also in use as private jets. The BAE 146/Avro RJ is in wide use with several European-based carriers such as CityJet . The largest operator of the type, Swiss Global Air Lines, retired its last RJ100 in August 2017.

Some Operators of this aircraft

In July 2018, 40 BAe Avro RJ-146 were in service…
This aircraft would be a great addition because this aircraft does not need a lot of runway space to takeoff, and it is perfect for short regional flights… I hope I have encouraged you to vote for this aircraft as I think it would really make IF even more special, by having older aircraft… Most of this information used comes from Wikipedia.
