The Britten-Norman Trislander (formerly BN-2A Mk III Trislander) stands as a three-engined piston-powered utility aircraft, meticulously crafted by Britten-Norman. Derived from its predecessor, the Islander, the Trislander’s design was orchestrated by founders John Britten and Desmond Norman. The primary focus of the Trislander’s design was to attain Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) capabilities, coupled with an expanded payload. This was achieved through the elongation of the fuselage, the introduction of fixed tricycle landing gear, and the incorporation of a central third engine atop the aircraft’s fin. The Trislander was adept at operating from uneven surfaces, and its increased load capacities contributed to its success in the market.
