Dash 8-100 :


     The original Dash-8 100, 200, and 300 (Dash-8) aircraft, delivered from 1984 through to the mid 1990's, established themselves as rugged and reliable turboprop aircraft. Capable of outstanding take-off and landing performance, even on unprepared airstrips, it is an ideal aircraft for airlines operating in developing regions of the world.

CRJ-200 LR (Long Range) :


 

     The Bombardier CRJ200 was designed to provide superior performance and operating efficiencies in the fast-growing regional airline industry. Against the closest competition it flies faster and farther while burning less fuel and having lower operating costs. With over 1,000 units in commercial service it has become the most successful regional airliner program the world has ever known.

BOEING 737-500 :

 

 

    The Boeing 737-500 is the is a shortened development of the second-generation Boeing 737. It still carries much of the structural weight needed for the higher weight models. This makes it less efficient than if it was designed specifically for its size category. All three second generation 737 models share extensive systems and structure commonality, and a common aircrew type rating.

BOEING 737-800 :

 

     Boeing's Next Generation 737-800 and 737-900 are the largest members of the strongselling 737 family. Unlike the other Next Generation 737s, the -800 and -900 introduce new fuselage lengths, extending 737 single class seating range out to 189, compared with 100 in the original 737-100.
