Bombardier Dash 8/Q Series - engines with sabres

  • Published on Feb 20, 2019
  • Bombardier Q-Series, also known as Dash 8, is a family of twin-engine turboprop regional aircraft, developed by de Havilland Canada in the early 1980s. The family is made up of several generations of aircraft: Series 100, 200, 300 and, of course, the Series 400, which continues to be produced by the Bombardier corporation.

    Gonna miss DHC 8 series when they are too old too fly i grow up with those airplane over the head, DHC 8 is the most common aircraft too see inn norway operated by Widerøe, you can say they connect our country, They have routes on evry commercial airport inn Norway. I wounder which aircraft they go for when the airframe on the DHC 8 100/200 (STOL) have had evry singel hour squesed out of it.

    He didn’t hijack the aircraft. He took it for a suicide joyride. It didn’t negatively affect anyone else. Respect to him, he may have stolen the plane, but he was polite, didn’t hurt anyone, and crashed it into an open area.

    Boeing and airbus planes look normal but the dash-8 q-series emphasizes the tube on wings thing.

    That young mechanic who stole the plane performed phenomenal maneuvers many thought far beyond the tolerance of the air frame and skill of non aviator. Just getting it off the ground is quite difficult for a laymen. A sad waste as he could have been a great pilot if he trained for it.

    Not a fan of flying in Dash-8s because propeller-driven planes fly so low that turbulence is a problem even at cruising altitude. Oh well, I can’t always fly in jets...

      I know, right? I remember as a kid watching Horizon Dash 8's flying into OTH. Then, it was the SeaPort C208's (with the epic callsign "SASQUATCH"), and now I guess they have United Express CRJ's flying out to Denver from there, but I haven't been over to see them.

    The problem with Bombardier aircraft is that they are narrow and cramped. CRJ = cramped jet.

    Without American owned Pratt & Whitney both the Dash 8 and ATR are gliders?

    The Dash 8 is not produced by Bombardier anymore, it is made by the new DeHavilland Canada, a subsidiary of Viking Air.

      Well yeah, even 172s have Lycoming and Continental engines. Everything that flies with a turbine in commercial aviation is the 3 heavyweights in one form or another.

    Why do the props rotate the same direction? Why not have them counter-rotating to cancel out the tourque

    In my country they replaced dash 8 with atr because it is "better"

      We like both in America because they both use Pratt & Whitney .

    My favourite and most beautiful turboprop! Impressive how Bombardier really pushed the limits of turboprop airplanes, look at how much the Dash 8 series has changed since the baby 100 first came out.

      Without USA Pratt & Whitney it's a glider not a turboprop.

    I flew on a Dash 8 q400 recently from Portland to Sacramento and I really enjoyed the flight. Great view out the window and I managed to get a picture of the landing gear at touchdown. Great day to fly, cool looking bird.

    Weird looking plane.
    I've flown on several no complaints.

  • Jarod Smith
    Jarod Smith 2 months ago

    The only problem with the Q-400 is that it doesn’t have a lot of cargo space, when Horizon operated in Alaska, too many passengers were bringing 2 bags to check and the baggage compartment isn’t large enough to accommodate that much, plus passengers traveling in Alaska can also check a third bag. Also the aircraft always seemed to be down for maintenance, so Alaska Airlines would have to find another aircraft to fill the flight, or even cancel the flight

    This is the only regional airliner I can tolerate to fly on. I always feel like a sardine on a CRJ or E-jet. Trips are often half-full and you can sit anywhere. It's just a very fun airplane!

    • NorthForkFisherman

      Nope. That's an Alaska/Horizon livery Q in the foreground, so that's an ORANG F-15 landing at PDX. Saw them a lot when I worked there.

    The Dash 8 is a true classic of the skies, and long may she fly.

    As of June 3rd 2019, the remaining de Havilland assets held by Bombardier were transfered to de Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited, a subsidiary of Longview Aviation which also holds Viking Air which already had most of the de Havilland assets such as the Twin Otter as well as the Canadair CL-215 and 415 fire fighting aircraft.

    So the Dash-8 is now officially a de Havilland aircraft.
    The existing Toronto area production plant, now leased by new de Havilland company continues to produce them and the staff have been transfered. Viking Air in western Canada continues to produce the Twin Otter and support the older aircraft.

    So basically, the Dash-8 is now a de Havilland Canada product, no longer Bombardier.

    I love flying on the Dash-8 Q comfortable. Years ago I flew with my friend who hates flying. She got scared when she saw the plane at the gate seeing the turboprop fans. I told her it's a great ride and she remembers it being one of the best flights she's ever been on. Interestingly enough there were alot of pilots on board which made her feel even better. I wish the Q400 flew out of my home city AUS yet all we have are jets.

    I fly Dash-8 Q400's for a living and have done for 6 years and I can safely say I still haven't worked out how to land the fucking thing. Flies like a wet jumper and lands like a brick falling off a roof.

    At 6:13 the 300 was not 11 ft longer to seat 56 more passengers. It could seat a total of 56 passengers....

      Fly on a dash 8-300, then fly on a Q400. You can hear the difference. It isn't really quiet, but its certainly quieter
