BAe 146 History See the official BAE SYSTEMS site for more details
The BAe 146 first flew commercially in 1983. The aircraft
was designed specifically to meet the demanding requirements
of the regional air transport market where heavy utilisation
over short sector lengths coupled with high reliability are
paramount requirements. Outstanding airfield performance and
whisper-jet noise levels are other attributes of the aircraft,
which offers excellent profit potential on low-density routes.
A total of 221 BAe 146s were built
and 219 were delivered between 1983 and 1993 when it was
succeeded by the Avro RJ Series.
Three different length versions
of the BAe 146 were built - the Series 100 with 70-84 seats,
the 200 Series with 85-100 seats and the 300 Series with
100-112 seats. The aircraft was also manufactured as a pure
freighter (QT- Quiet Trader), a QC- Quick Change variant
and as a VIP transport aircraft (the Statesman) (see
BAE Systems for more information). Also, please check out
the very informative Wikipedia entry for the BAe-146.

BAe 146-100 Flybe aircraft created by Andreas Much of The Avroliner Project. Andreas develops models for X-Plane 7 through 9 based on the very popular BAe 146 aircraft type. This download includes the Flybe livery to be used with Andreas' base BAe 146. Requires the BAe 146-100/RJ100 aircraft from The Avroliner Project. Andreas has done a very nice job creating the model and graphics. The special, included cockpit has good detail and a 3D version, although the 3D details are lacking comparable models available for Flight Simulator X. The aircraft includes moving parts, including moving gear and flaps, along with rotating jet turbines. Installation of this livery is very easy - unzip the download into the "liveries" folder within the aircraft's directory (create the "liveries" directory if it doesn't exist yet). Flybe Limited is a British airline based at Exeter International Airport, England. It operates over 180 routes between over 55 European airports. The airline's largest base is Southampton Airport and it has other large bases at Manchester Airport, Birmingham Airport and Belfast City Airport and a total of 14 aircraft and crew bases across the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man. Flybe started operations on November 1, 1979 as Jersey European Airways (JEA), after taking over the operations of Intra Airways. Jersey European Airways was the brainchild of John Habin, a resident of Jersey and the majority investor in JEA. Having sold Aviation Beauport and other business interests, Habin established a few key routes from Jersey to the UK. Jersey European Airways was taken over in 1983 by Jack Walker's Walker Steel Group who were already the parent company of Blackpool based charter airline Spacegrand Aviation. The two airlines were run separately, with partially shared management, until their amalgamation within the Walker Aviation Group in 1985, under the Jersey European name. The airline rebranded as British European in June 2000, shortening this title to Flybe on July 18, 2002 and repositioning itself as a full service, low-fare airline. On November 3, 2006 it was announced that agreement in principle had been reached for Flybe to acquire BA Connect, with the exception of London City Airport services. The acquisition was completed in March 2007. The airline is owned by Rosedale Aviation Holdings (69%), Flybe staff (16%) and British Airways (15%) as a consequence of the acquisition of BA Connect. It has 3,000 employees at January 2008. A version of this aircraft is available for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 (9) here.

Original aircraft model by Jon Murchison who has gratiously permitted fsaerospace.com to host his BAe 146 aircraft for free download.This particular model, the 146-100 Turkish Airlines type, can be used with FS2002, FS2004 AND FSX without conversions. In FS X, simply copy the folder into the appropriate "Airplanes" directory. See the readme file for more information. The BAe 146-100 (also known as Avro RJ100) is generally known as a reliable short-range haul aircraft. There have been several crashes involving BAe 146-100s, however. In 2003, a Turkish Airlines BAe 146-100 plane destined for Diyarbakir, a Turkish town near the border to Iraq, crashed after successful departure from Istanbul. Seventy-one of the 75 passengers onboard dies as well as four of five crew members. For more information on the BAe 146-100 series, please visit the Plane-Spotter.com BAe 146 Web site.

File: BAe 146QT /AVRO RJ-100
(Filename: 146tnt.zip) - BAe 146QT /AVRO RJ-100
The author calls this a BAe 146-300. Being a freighter, the more accurate description is Bae 146 QT (Quiet Trader).
This aircraft model has been designed using FSDSPro by Abacus. It features a 32 sided fuselage, spinning wheels, 3D spinning engine fans, 3D flightdeck with crew, fully animated gear, flaps, ailerons, spoilers and night lighting. The main gear 'hang' while in the air, and take the load of the aircraft once on the ground.
The model also features what I refer to as 'IS' technology. This is 'inbuilt scenery', which will appear once the engines have been shut down (CTRL+SHIFT+F1) This new model features an interactive component of 'IS' which allows the user to turn on and off various parts of the 'IS' scenery to suit his/her own wishes. Use the rudder (Enter and O/ins key on the Numeric Keypad (NP)), elevator (The 8 and 2 keys on the NP), and aileron keys (4 and 6 on the NP) to activate/dis-activate the 'IS' scenery. Play around to see what keys do what. Check the IS_help file for more details.
The model also features 'Pushback' technology. When you start the engines (CTRL+F1) and leave the landing lights turned off, the push back tug will stay connected to your aircraft until a successful engine start has been completed. Using FS2002's pushback feature (SHIFT+P) brings 'Pushback' technology to life. Once engine 4 has started, the tug will disconnect and leave you to your flight.

The British built BAe 146-100/Avro RJ70 is the shortest member of the 146 family of aircraft, coming in over 16 feet shorter than its big brother the 300. Using the same engines and wing as the larger 200 and 300 variants, the 100 appears overly stubby. Having impressive STOL capabilities, the 100 is used extensively by airlines on regional routes, with the most famous example used as the Queens flight in Great Britain.
Day and night textures, 3D main and nose gear bays, steerable front gear without the rudder moving on the ground, spinning wheels, fully animated double slotted leading edge flaps, hanging main gear in the air, animated rear and wing spoilers, 3D engine fans, night lighting, transparent cockpit windows with oil effects and flight crew. Truely a fantastic model!
