The Fokker 70 is an abbreviated improvement of the prominent 100 seat class Fokker 100.

Fokker started improvement of the new subsidiary air transport in November 1992 in spite of the nonattendance of firm requests, cheerful of catching a substantial offer of the figure 2000 or more air ship in the 70 to 125 seat class needed through to 2010, and the substitution F-28 business sector. The Fokker 70's 30.91m (101ft 4in) length is near that of the F-28-4000's 29.61m (97ft 2in), on which the Fokker 100 was initially based.

The primary Fokker 70 was truth be told the second Fokker 100 model which was changed by evacuating two fuselage plugs - one forward and one back of the wing. Development on this air ship started in October 1992 (preceding the November 1992 system goahead), bringing about the sort's first flight on April 4 1993. The principal generation Fokker 70 flew without precedent for July 1994 and certificate was recompensed on October 14 1994. The primary Fokker 70 (an Executive Jet 70) was conveyed to Ford in the USA later that month.

A configuration point of the Fokker 70 was to hold however much shared characteristic with the bigger Fokker 100 as could reasonably be expected. Subsequently they impart basically indistinguishable wings, airframes (with the exception of length, and the evacuation of two crisis overwing passageways on the Fokker 70) and frameworks, in addition to comparative EFIS flightdecks. The Fokker 70 was offered with two flightdecks, one enhanced for the 70's local aerial shuttle operations, the other basically indistinguishable to the Fokker 100's to give administrators of both sorts shared trait. The Fokker 70 and 100 likewise impart indistinguishable Tay Mk.620 powerplants, despite the fact that the Tay Mk.650 that was offered for the 100 was not accessible on the 70. The 70 and 100 were based on a typical creation line.

Likewise with the Fokker 100, a corporate shuttle, the Fokker Executive Jet 70, was offered (and pulled in a little number of requests). The Fokker 70a was enhanced for US bearers, while the Fokker 70er (affirmed in late 1994) had additional fuel tankage and developed reach.

With Fokker's breakdown in 1996, the Fokker 70/100 creation line shut in right on time 1997. Regardless of Fokker's money related disappointment the 70 remaining parts prominent with its administrators and second hand deals are very nearly unbelievable.
