Overview

In February 1997 Fairchild Dornier launched a programme to develop a corporate derivative of its DO-328-120 twin turboprop regional airliner. The Envoy 3 shares its airframe structure and avionics, but is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW 306B axial-centrifugal flow turbofan engines rated at 6,050 lbs. of thrust each. Its cabin seats 12 passengers and a lavatory is located aft, with access to the 176 cubic ft baggage compartment.

The first Envoy 3 prototype rolled out on 6 December, 1997 at Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich, Germany and accomplished its maiden flight in January 1998. It was certified in July 1999 by EASA and the FAA and initial deliveries began that same year.

The Envoy 3 is a medium-range, twin turbofan commuter transport configured as a cantilever high wing monoplane with a T-tail. The wing is mounted over the fuselage pressure vessel with the junction enclosed in a large fairing. The retractable tricycle landing gear has dual wheels on each unit and incorporates a trailing-link main gear design. The landing gear, with its 14” wheels, retracts into a lower fuselage pod situated mid way along the length of the fuselage. The airframe is mainly of aluminium monocoque construction although kevlar and carbon fibre composite materials are also used. It

Production ceased in 2006.
