In August 1972, seven years after entry into service of the BN-2 Islander, development started on the more powerful Turbo Islander. Initial testing showed that the Lycoming LTP101 turboprop engines were too powerful for the aircraft, so were replaced by a pair of Allison 250-B17C turboprops; the project evolved into the Turbine Islander, BN-2T instead. Production commenced in 1979, although the model is now powered by Rolls-Royce model 250 B17 320hp engines.

The BN-2T has seating for up to nine passengers. Its design lends itself to easy reconfiguration between a wide variety of roles. It is designed to operate in harsh environments, to land and take off from snow packed landing strips or sandy beaches, and is employed in commuter, air ambulance and freight roles, as well as for specialist operational roles such as oil pollution detection, search and rescue, crime interdiction and counter-terrorism missions. It is, the company claims, a high capacity, multi-role, high frequency, rough terrain, short take off and landing workhorse.
