Hi looking for some specific information on 18 seaters like HAL/Dornier 228, Jetstream 31 and B1900D. I want to compare these aircraft for missions ranging from 1 to 1.5 hours:
Passenger Capacity apart from 2 cockpit crew and 1 cabin crew, Pressurisation, Range in KM, Cruising speed, Takeoff distance to 50 ft, Fuel Flow/Hour, Operating (Fuel) cost per km, Baggage capacity (front and rear max), Night Flying Ability, Single Cockpit Crew?, Typical Annual Least Cost (A-M-I/A-C-M-I).
Also can the Dornier 228/J32 be configured with a full/mini-galley capable of serving small hot meals and accomodate upto 1 cabin crew? I have seen a pic of a Dornier 228 cabin with "TOILET" labelled across the rear bulkhead wall. Does this mean that fitting a toilet will take away baggage capacity on the D228? The Dornier I have seen did not have a toilet.
Also frm what I have seen, the last(bulkhead) row of the Dornier with 3 seats can be used for 1 crew seat in the center (folded away when using galley), the right window seat being replaced by a galley while the left window seat left open for a toilet door. Would this work? But this would reduce capacity from 19 to 16.
How would this work on a J32? and a B1900D? Toilet and galley comes as std fitting on these aircraft?
The B1900D is pressurised I think. What about the other 2? How would the
D228 perform at airports at altitudes like 18000 feet (leh?). Ths Indian Airforce does operate the Dornier at these altitudes but can it be operated in civilian transport mode if unpressurised?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks and regards. Rainer
