Fokker 50 Regional Turbo Prop
The Fokker 50 is a regional turbo-prop aircraft of which a total of 208 were built until 1997 by the Fokker Aircraft Company. It has been the natural successor of the ubiquitous F-27 Friendship. Most Fokker 50s are currently still in service with close to 30 operators worldwide.
Prevailing market conditions have made Fokker 50 aircraft available at affordable prices or montly lease rentals. Many of these aircraft have previously been operated by European flag carriers and represent exceptional quality and value. The Fokker 50 is a very reliable and mature aircraft with low operating expenses and this, combined with its high payload capability, makes for outstanding economics.
The Fokker 50 is available as an effective platform for P2F conversion. Many Fokker50Freighters in operation have already clearly proven to be a reliable and efficient cargo turboprop alternative. The large lefthand forward cargo door (2.34 m x 1.77 m, the same size as the F-27 door, but with a larger clear opening) and cabin flexibility enable cargo of many sizes and weights to be transported.
