The Bombardier Q400, also known as the Bombardier Dash8 Q400, earlier DeHavilland Canada DHC8-400, is a short-haul twin-engine turboprop airliner originally build by DeHavilland Canada, now by Bombardier Aerospace. 90 Passengers can maximal seat in its cabin. According to Bombardier it can fly almost as fast as a jet while consuming less fuel. It uses two Pratt&Whitney 105A engines combined with six-blade propellers.

Development status

  • Exterior modelling 90}% completed mostly done, some details could be added as well as new Liveries
  • Interior modelling 90}% completed overall good, some details would be nice ;)
  • Cockpit modelling 80}% completed Quite well done although some panels are missing and not every switch is animated.
  • FDM 80}% completed Done as much as I'm able to. Maybe a JSBsim FDM later?
  • Systems 90}% completed I've done a big effort to get a realistic startup, but it still needs some work
The exterior of the Bombardier Q400 - mostly done
The Cabin of the Q400 - (better) textures are still needed
