Fairchild Dornier 328JET
The Dornier, later Fairchild Dornier 328jet has given another lease of life to the essential 328 configuration and was a pioneer of another class of aerial shuttle, that of the 30 seat local plane.
Fairchild Aerospace assumed control over DASA's 80% stake in Dornier in ahead of schedule June 1996, which made Dornier a subsidiary of Fairchild. On August 8, 2000, Dornier Luftfahrt Gmbh changed name to Fairchild Dornier Gmbh.
Improvement of the 328jet was propelled not long after Fairchild Aerospace assumed control over Dasa's stake in Dornier. A business overview of 50 territorial carriers worldwide was propelled which affirmed their client driven inclination for plane gear, the length of the working money making concerns of a local plane were focused. Furnished with this data, Fairchild propelled the 328jet, a plane engined improvement of the 328 turboprop, in February 1997.
The most clear change to the 328 for the 328jet is the expansion of FADEC prepared Pratt & Whitney Canada Pw306 turbofans mounted in underwing units. Generally the 328jet was intended to be a base change advancement of the 328 turboprop to permit Fairchild to put up the airplane for sale to the public as fast as would be prudent. Fairchild could attain this as a result of the turboprop 328's traditionalist building and clean aeromechanic outline. Only two fuselage outlines (which the wing and arriving apparatus join to) obliged reinforcing. A 10cm (4in) augmentation to the trailing edge folds cuts flight optimized drag. Different progressions incorporate reinforced arriving rigging and brakes, slight progressions to the product of the Honeywell Primus 2000 EFIS flight suite, and an APU is standard.
The initial 328jet model was changed over from the second 328 turboprop, and was taken off on December 6 1997. It first flew from Munich in Germany on January 20 1998. Certificate and first conveyances were in July 1999.
Fairchild Dornier considered two extended advancements of the 328jet, the 50 seat 528jet and the 42 to 44 seat Pw306b controlled 428jet. The 428jet was formally propelled in May 1998 and would have been gathered in Israel by IAI, yet Fairchild Dornier suspended the system in August 2000 because of not having the capacity to make a suitable business case.
The Envoy 3 is a corporate plane/corporate shuttle advancement of the 328jet with longer extend.
On July 1 2002 Fairchild Dornier was announced bankrupt and entered organization. In mid-2003 Avcraft Aerospace Gmbh obtained the rights to the 328jet together with 18 finished airplane. On the other hand, after various airplane were conveyed, they were constrained into organization too in March 2005.
