Dash 8 Q400 rework

Why Rework the Dash 8?

So The Dash 8 is a very iconic aircraft and is one of my favourites too. Outside of Airbus and Boeing, to me this is the most beautiful and best aircraft overall, Although the Dash 8 Q400 is mostly used for short domestics regional routes and few international flights I still think it’s as important as ever to see this beauty soaring through the skies with its addictive propeller sounds

A bit about the Aircraft

The De Havilland Canada DHC-8 ,[2] commonly known as the Dash 8 , is a series of turboprop-powered regional airliners, introduced by de Havilland Canada (DHC) in 1984. DHC was later bought by Boeing in 1988, then by Bombardier in 1992; then by Longview Aviation Capital in 2019, reviving the de Havilland Canada brand. Powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100s, it was developed from the Dash 7 with improved cruise performance and lower operational costs, but without STOLperformance. Three sizes were offered: initially the 37–40 seat -100 until 2005 and the more powerful -200 from 1995, the stretched 50–56 seats -300 from 1989, both until 2009, and the 68–90 seats -400 from 1999, still in production. The Q Series are post-1997 variants fitted with active noise control systems.
