ROLE

The de Havilland Canada Dash 7, is a four-engine,
medium range, turboprop airliner. Introduced by de Havilland Canada
(DHC) , they are now produced by Bombardier Aerospace. The
Dash 7 Dash 7, features extreme short take-off and landing (STOL) performance.

With their excellent STOL performance, their designs could fly into smaller
airports located in city centers and smaller, outlying, more austere airports having runways that the other
 aircraft could not easily use (unpaved, unimproved). During a typical STOL
landing, flaps are selected to the 45 position, generating more lift and drag and thus allowing for
steeper descents and slower approach speeds.
