Description: Bombardier's Q Series is a family of turboprop passenger aircraft outstanding by its durability and low noise emissions. These aircraft are also known as de Havilland Dash 8, Dash 8 designation also refers to Q100 model. They operate on regional routes and is enabled for operation at extreme climates such as arctic, tropic or desert. Originally, Dash 8 was the name assigned to this aircraft but in the 1990s Bombardier changed to Q Series to remark it was a quiet aircraft. As of 2005, more than 650 of these aircraft have been sold logging more than 13 million flight hours so far.

Bombardier has developed a family of turboprop aircraft varying the seating capacity from 37- to 70-seat which share a common crew training. Bombardier introduced a new Noise and Vibration Suppression (NVS) system in the Q Series aircraft for enhanced cabin comfort. The NVS system also lowered the noise emissions to unprecedented levels which were deemed as unattainable in the previous generations of turboprop aircraft.

The Q200 was develop to meet the requirements of airlines needing more power and greater payload but retaining the Q100 size. This critical requirement was met through the PW123 engine rated at 2,150 shp replacing PW120A and PW121 engines used on the Q100. The PW123 engine also powers the larger Q300 aircraft. The Q200 was demonstrated highly suitable operating at high locations and hot climate compared to Q100. In addition to Q100, Q200 can be operated from runaways as short as 800 meters.

Bombardier launched the Q200 project in 1992 and the first aircraft was delivered to an airline in 1995. It retains the maximum takeoff weight compared with Q100, is faster 290-kt versus 270-kt, but the aircraft's maximum range is shorter by 100 nautical miles (180 kilometers). The Q200 flight endurance is 9 and half hours. Optionally, the Q200 can be converted from a passenger aircraft into an all cargo aircraft taking as little as 20 minutes to reconfigure the cabin layout.
