The De Havilland Canada DHC-7, widely recognized as the Dash 7, stands out as a turboprop regional aircraft line known for its Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) performance. De Havilland aimed to create a 40-seater aircraft to compete with other models utilized by busier regional airlines, focusing on the market not only for remote routes but also broader regional destinations. The Dash 7, while quieter, preserved most aspects of its predecessor, the Twin Otter. It took its inaugural flight in 1975 and remained in production until 1988, coinciding with De Havilland Canada’s acquisition by Boeing, subsequently followed by Bombardier. In 1978, De Havilland introduced the DHC-7 150 series, featuring the second model in the series, the DHC-7-151 Freightliner, with interior modifications and additional fuel capacity.
