The BAe146 is a short haul and regional airliner that was manufactured in the UK by British Aerospace. It was intended for use on short, sometimes tricky routes, throughout the world, making use of its STOL capabilities and ability to land on rough strips.

The certification of the 146s was gained both in the UK and in the US during the first half of 1983 and production ran until 2002, although manufacture of an improved version, the Avro RJ, began in 1992.

The BAe146 is a high-wing cantilever monoplane with a T-tail. It has four 6,500 lbf thrust Avco Lycoming ALF 502H turbofan engines mounted on pylons underneath the wings and retractable tricycle landing gear. The aircraft was marketed as a quiet, low-consumption, turbofan aircraft that would be effective at replacing the previous generation of turboprop-powered feeder aircraft. So quiet is it that the BAe146 has been marketed under the name Whisperjet, and it sees wide usage at small, city-based airports.

The BAe146 was produced in -100, -200 and -300 models. The freight carrying version carries the designation ‘QT’ (Quiet Trader), and a convertible passenger/freight model is designated as ‘QC’ (Quick Change). A gravel kit can be fitted to aircraft to enable operations from rough, unprepared airstrips.

In 1993, the upgraded Avro RJ series superseded the BAe 146. Changes included higher-thrust LF 507 turbofans, housed in redesigned nacelles and a modernised cockpit with EFIS replacing the analogue ADI, HSI, and engine instrumentation.
