Abstract

British Aerospace Reveals Further Development for BAe 146 Family FOLLOWING the recent announcement of the RJ70 variant of the BAe 146 which has generated a very positive market reaction, British Aerospace now reveals the 146-NRA Project intended to further complement the BAe 146 family of jetliners. Studies on the 146-NRA are well advanced based upon a 14 foot stretched version of the 146-300 fuselage accom­ modating 125 passengers in a 5-abreast single class layout. Various combinations of mixed class seating will also be available, as will 6-abreast configurations for increased capacity, all using the existing widely acclaimed 146 cabin uration also offers the long-term oppor­ which have now been ordered and design. tunity for the installation of larger optioned with some 46 operators, The aircraft will feature a new and diameter, ultra-high bypass ratio power- provides confidence that the 146-NRA larger wing permitting cruise speeds up plants when they become available. — exhibiting the highest standards of to Mach 0.82 and a range of more than The 146-NRA will be produced in comfort and operating economics — 2500 statute miles. parallel with the BAe's RJ70, 146-100, will capture a major share of the future The 146-NRA Project will retain the 120/130-seater market. 146-200 and 146-300 models which high wing configuration proven on will be powered by four Textron British Aerospace is in discussion existing 146 models as offering good Lycoming, newly introduced, LF507 with a number of potential international engine and freight hold accessibility, a turbofan engines.
