The Bombardier Q200, also known as the Bombardier Dash8 Q200, earlier DeHavilland Canada DHC8-200, is so to say the "small brother" of the Q400. Derived from the Q100, it has stronger engines creating a better performance, namely the Pratt&Whitney 123C/D combined with two six-blade propellers. It's a short-haul twin-engine turboprop airliner originally build by DeHavilland Canada, now by Bombardier Aerospace. 40 Passengers can maximal seat in its cabin (normally about 37).
While an earlier project (Dash8Q200, see github.com/D-ECHO/Dash8Q200) stalled, I restarted this project using parts of the model of the new Q400 made mainly by FlorianK. It also uses the new systems and checklists/tutorials from the Q400.
- Exterior modelling mostly done, some details could be added as well as new Liveries
- Interior modelling overall good, some details would be nice ;)
- Cockpit modelling Quite well done although some panels are missing and not every switch is animated.
- FDM Done as much as I'm able to. Maybe a JSBsim FDM later?
- Systems I've done a big effort to get a realistic startup, but it still needs some work
