The British Aerospace ATP (the name stands for Advanced Turbo-Prop) is a regional airliner developed and manufactured by British Aerospace. The ATP was introduced in 1988, as a direct derivative of the Hawker Siddeley HS 748, with the intention to produce a quiet, short-range turboprop aircraft that was also fuel-efficient. This was a response to increasing concerns in the aviation market regarding aircraft noise, also the financial situation following the 1973 oil crisis was considered when developing the aircraft. To create the new design, British Aerospace lengthened the fuselage and wings of the HS 748, and also added re-envisioned nose and tail construction. The engines chosen for the aircraft were twin Pratt & Whitney Canada PW126s. British Aerospace manufactured 65 models, when production was ceased due to the aircraft only attracting few customers. This was most likely due to other aircrafts already successfully repesenting the type by the time the ATP entered service.
