The Bombardier Dash 8, formerly identified as the De Havilland Canada DHC-8, constitutes a series of turboprop regional airliners crafted and introduced by De Havilland Canada in 1984. Evolving from its precursor, the Dash 7, the Dash 8 achieved enhanced performance by incorporating Pratt & Whitney Canada PW123 engines. The Dash 8 family’s 400 series featured a further extended fuselage and a re-designed T-tail, with initial variants entering service in 2000. The 8-Q400 variant, an improved and further stretched airliner, introduced the ANVS system and increased passenger seating compared to its predecessors. Ownership changes occurred for De Havilland Canada, first acquired by Boeing in 1988 and later by Bombardier in 1992, leading to the aircraft’s renaming during these periods.
