On September 3, 1981 the first BAe 146 regional jetliner took to the skies from the British Aerospace airfield at Hatfield, Hertfordshire. The aircraft – and its later-build successor, the Avro RJ – was destined to become Britain’s most successful jet airliner.
While the increasing need for larger and newer regional jets is upon us, one would expect to see the older models cast aside for the shiny new toy your local airline got. However, despite the BAe 146 seeing its numbers drop from 387 aircraft built to just 123 in operation, the aircraft has made sure it will continue to be seen in the skies for some time to come.
The Avroliner Project is a virtual experience like no other. Since 2007, we’ve been providing aircraft add-ons for the x-plane community. Our founders started with the X-Plane 8 model and 2D decks. Since then, we’ve moved on to various aircraft releases and a host of add-ons for the virtual world. Learn more about our packages and find the right ones for your x-plane needs!
