Dornier 328

Overview

The Dornier, later Fairchild Dornier 328JET has given a new lease of life to the basic 328 design and was a pioneer of a new class of airliner, that of the 30 seat regional jet. Fairchild Aerospace took over DASA's 80% stake in Dornier in early June 1996, which made Dornier a subsidiary of Fairchild. On August 8, 2000, Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH changed name to Fairchild Dornier GmbH. Development of the 328JET was launched soon after Fairchild Aerospace took over Dasa's stake in Dornier. A market survey of 50 regional airlines worldwide was launched which confirmed their customer driven preference for jet equipment, as long as the operating economics of a regional jet were competitive. Armed with this information, Fairchild launched the 328JET, a jet engined development of the 328 turboprop, in February 1997. The first 328JET prototype was converted from the second 328 turboprop, and was rolled out on December 6 1997. It first flew from Munich in Germany on January 20 1998. Certification and first deliveries were in July 1999. Fairchild Dornier considered two stretched developments of the 328JET, the 50 seat 528JET and the 42 to 44 seat PW306B powered 428JET. The 428JET was formally launched in May 1998 and would have been assembled in Israel by IAI, but Fairchild Dornier suspended the program in August 2000 due to not being able to make a viable business case. The Envoy 3 is a corporate jet/corporate shuttle development of the 328JET with longer range. On July 1 2002 Fairchild Dornier was declared insolvent and entered administration. In mid-2003 AvCraft Aerospace GmbH acquired the rights to the 328JET together with 18 completed aircraft. However, after a number of aircraft were delivered, they were forced into administration too in March 2005.
