The Q400 is a shorthaul turboprop developed from the de Havilland Canada Dash 8, which in its turn was developed from the de Havilland Canada Dash 7. de Havilland Canada is now known as Bombardier.
The Dash 8 was developed from the companies Dash 7 Short Take-off & Landing (STOL) aircraft but instead of having 4 engines as in the Dash 7, the Dash 8 has two engines, this required the dropping of the STOL requirements but resulted in a much cheaper to operate aircraft.
The original Dash 8 was the series 100 designed for 37-39 passengers using the Pratt & Whitney PW120A and entered service in 1984.
The -200 used more powerful PW123 engines but using the -100 fuselage, it is capable of carrying between 37 & 39 passengers.
The -300 was a 3.43m (11ft 2in) stretch allowing the carrying of between 50 & 56 passengers and powered by the PW123, PW123B or PW123E engines.
The Q300 version of the aircraft uses an active noise suppressant system (ANVS) to reduce the noise in the cabin.
The Q400 is a stretched and improved 70 to 78 passenger variant which entered service in 2000 with a fast 360kt cruising speed. The Q400 is powered by the PW150A engines with six bladed propellers.
