This twin turboprop-powered airliner with 50 seats proved to be very popular with small shuttle airline companies. The Fokker F-50 is based on the fuselage of the F-27 Friendship. The improvements were the new Pratt and Whittney Canada PW125 turboprops, driving six blades propellers. This allowed faster speeds with greater fuel economy, bringing new avionics and an EFIS glass cockpit. The F-50 was first flown on February 13, 1987.
