The Jetstream 41 is a turboprop-powered feederliner and regional airliner, designed by British Aerospace as a “stretched” version of the popular Handley Page Jetstream. Intended to compete directly with 30-seat aircraft like the Embraer Brasilia, Dornier 328 and Saab 340, the new design eventually accommodated 29 passengers in a two-by-one arrangement like the Jetstream 31. Eastern Airways is the biggest operator of Jetstream 41s in the world, with 25 in the fleet.
Comfort & Size
The Jetstream 41’s stretch added 16 ft (4.88 m) to the fuselage, consisting of an 8 foot (2.5 m) plug forward of the wing and a 7 ft 9 in (2.36 m) plug to the rear; the fuselage design was all new and did not contain any parts of the old fuselage. The new design demanded a wing with increased span, which also included reworked ailerons and flaps. The wing was also mounted below the fuselage so that it did not carry through the cabin aisle, which also led to larger wing root fairings that increased baggage capacity.
