The British Aerospace Jetstream stands as a compact twin-turboprop regional airliner, developed by British Aerospace and stemming from the preceding Handley Page Jetstream. The decision to advance the aircraft further materialized in 1978 with the designation “Mark 3 Jetstream.” This new prototype featured more powerful Garrett (now Honeywell) TPE331-10UG engines, providing extended overhaul intervals. The finalized aircraft design was named the Jetstream 31, taking its inaugural flight in 1980 and swiftly gaining success in the aviation sector.
