The Enchanting Fokker 50
The most fascinating aspect about the Fokker 50 is that every person that comes in contact with it somehow gets enchanted. And for different reasons, no doubt.
It’s not only pilots that love the Fokker 50, even the mechanics have a soft spot for it. The aircraft is often called “marvelous.”
There’s no reason why passengers would not fall in love with it.
The aircraft flies 50 passengers in a vast cabin with a full-service galley and ample baggage capacity.
The spacious cabin cross-section has a wide aisle with a seat width that is typically the same as Boeing 737s.
Optional LED lighting enhances the passenger experience and cuts down on weight and maintenance costs.
Cabin noise levels are extremely low, achieved through design features including slow-turning, 6-bladed propellers, and vibration absorbers. No active-noise control is needed.
Passengers also enjoy from generous and unequaled air-conditioning capabilities of the Fokker 50.
All Fokker 50s are equipped with sturdy, integrated airstairs, making the aircraft independent of ground equipment and facilitating comfortable passenger boarding.
High operational flexibility is a main feature of the Fokker 50. Quick turnarounds– increasing utilization – are facilitated by the 4-door concept, preventing ground handling interference. The cargo holds are located fore and aft of the cabin, ensuring no weight and balance problems, which can sometimes be experienced with a single hold.
The Fokker 50 has a range of almost 1,243 statute miles, is specifically designed for traveling long distances in reliable comfort and safety.
The Fokker 50 also has an excellent performance record with operations from unpaved runways. Together with its low runway bearing strength requirements it can serve an even wider scope of airfields.
The Fokker 50 long-range capability enables a wide variety of destinations including long-range charter flights. Low fuel burn and high maximum landing weight (MLW) enable a 500 nm out-and-return range with full passenger payload to remote destinations.
Its maximum payload is over 7,000 kg while the maximum gross cabin volume is up to 56 m3 (2,000 ft3). Range with a typical 5,000 kg payload is 1,400 nm.
As a turboprop, the Fokker 50 uses up to 30% less fuel than a regional jet with the same passenger capacity. Consequently, the CO2 output is also 30% less.
With Fokker 50 in its network, chartering flights with Tahseen will be convenient and speedy than ever.
