The British Aerospace ATP, where ATP stands for Advanced Turbo-Prop, emerged as a regional airliner developed and produced by British Aerospace. Introduced in 1988, the ATP was a direct evolution of the Hawker Siddeley HS 748, designed to address the aviation market’s growing concerns about noise and the need for a fuel-efficient, short-range turboprop aircraft. The development also took into account the financial challenges stemming from the 1973 oil crisis. British Aerospace extended the fuselage and wings of the HS 748 for the new design, incorporating a re-imagined nose and tail structure. The aircraft featured twin Pratt & Whitney Canada PW126 engines. Despite manufacturing 65 models, production ceased due to limited customer interest, likely influenced by the presence of other successful aircraft in the market by the time the ATP entered service.
