The BAe 146 (Avro RJ) is a medium-sized commercial aircraft that carries its four jet engines on a high wing above the fuselage. The aircraft has very quiet operation, so it is widely used at small city-based airports. The BA146-200 / Avro RJ85 first flew in August 1982 and entered service six months later. The RJ85 was the first RJ development of the BAe 146 family and features an improved cabin.
It seats up to 100 passengers comfortably. An In-flight entertainment can be incorporated in the seats or screens mounted on partitions below the overhead stowage. This aircraft allows an almost infinite variety of cabin interiors to suit customers' preferences.
The BAe 146 FEATURES include:
- One of the quietest jets in production, known as the WhisperJet
