Fokker 100 for sale
Fokker 100 – the biggest production plane of the Netherlands aircraft-building company with the name of the same name.
Fokker 100 is the narrow-body medium-range jet aircraft accomodating up to 107 passengers (from here and figure 100 in the name) and is intended for performance of short and average flights. The glider of Fokker F28 of the same company formed a basis for this plane. In the developed model the fuselage was increased by 5,51 meters that the number of passengers to 107 people instead of 85 people in the F28-4000 model allowed to increase. In communication increase in the fuselage reconsidered design of a side panel towards increase in efficiency of aerodynamics. Wingspan of F100 in comparison with F28 increased almost by 3 meters. At a hundred part it makes 28,08 meters, and at the twenty eighth 25,1 meters. Also the internal equipment including a cabin interior was changed.
In the 100-th fokker as the power plant two Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 620-15 turbojets everyone by pull-rod of 61,6 kN or two Rolls-Royces Tay Mk 650-15 pull-rod of 67,2 kN everyone are used.
The first flight of Fokker 100 took place on November 30, 1986, certification was received in November, 1987, and the first deliveries to Swissair airline which is the first buyer of the F100 production model began in February, 1988.
In 1993 as replacement of F28 into operation it was put by Fokker 70 accomodating up to 79 passengers and being in fact the F100 option shortened on 4,62 meters.
Also developments of test of cargo Fokker 100QC option and expanded 130-seater Fokker 130 option were conducted, but these models didn’t gain further development.
The Fokker 100 and Fokker 70 models were equipped with digital avionics of EFIS with the color displays serving for a conclusion of flight information, and indications of onboard systems.
Though the plane also was successful in the market, but because of bad management the company continued to lose money and finally went bankrupt in March, 1996. And production of the Fokker 100 planes was suspended in 1997.
The Fokker F100 and F70 planes became successful successors of popular airliners of the F28 series. However their Dutch manufacturing firm couldn’t lower costs of production that as a result and resulted it in bankruptcy. So the history of the Fokker planes ended.
In the late seventies Fokker developed the new project for replacement of the F28 Fellowship airliner. Lengthening of the 100-seater plane to the sizes of the 130-seater Super F28 airliner became the obvious first step. Was planned to offer such plane to buyers by 1984. In those days on the Western European airlines there were no small jet planes yet, and “Fokker” decided to bring big cars to the market. The Super F28 project became 150 – places – nym the F29 liner though the design of this plane still remained not clear. At some point “Fokker” was going to use Boeing 737 fuselage sections. Then she combined efforts with McDonnell Douglas in the MDF 100 project, but this project was covered in the late eighties. The firm needed only – to return one to the checked F28 project.
In November, 1983 “Fokker” reported that it develops the 100-seater F28 version. This plane was begun as the Fokker 100 (F100) project along with the turbo-propeller Fokker 50 plane (the modifed F27 Friendship version). Deliveries of F100 worth 14,9 million dollars could begin in 1987. “Fokker” predicted the market for 750 such planes.
In the new car F28 fuselage extended on 5,51 m in which 107 passengers could be located now was used. F100 received also new extended side panel, the changed glazing of a cabin and turbofan Rolls-Royce engines of Tau. Early versions equipped with Tau’s engines 650-15 61,60 kN, but after them replaced with Tau’s engines 650-15 67,19 kN.
For production of components of “Fokker” began to cooperate with other European firms. Daimler Aerospace Airbus from Germany assembled average and tail sections of the fuselage, “Short Brothers” from Northern Ireland delivered a side panel, “Dowty” did a nasal bearing part of the chassis. To the American firm “Northrop Grumman” ordered composite gondolas of engines and reverser of pull-rod, and Menasco – the main bearing parts of the chassis.
The Swissair airline which ordered eight planes for replacement of DC-9 became the first buyer of the new liner in July, 1984. Then “Fokker” patiently waited nearly a year for orders from other airlines. At last in May, 1985 the KLM airline ordered 10 planes. With more powerful engines started release of the version in August, 1985 after obtaining the important order from American Airlines airline. Americans originally ordered only 10 cars, but increased the order to 75 planes later.
According to requirements of customers of “Fokker” made a number of changes to serial airliners. Planes equipped with Collins EFIS cabins with six panels of a glazing and a control system of flight of Honeywell, and increased the operational mass of the car. Need in parallel to build prototypes of planes of two absolutely new projects caused F100 exit delay to tests. It for the first time flew up only on November 30, 1986, and certification was postponed to fall of the 1987th.
The second pilot model of F100 flew up on February 25, 1987. The plane passed the 1100-hour program of flight tests and on November 27 was certified by the authorities of Holland. The Swissair airline received the first production plane on February 9 the 1988th. On April 3 it began to fly on the Zurich line – Vienna. The first F100 with the forced engines flew up on July 8. With its emergence in February, 1989 the order for 75 planes from American Airlines airline arrived. More power armed F100 was certified on May 30, 1989. On July 1 the first plane was received by the USAir company (later renamed into “US Airways”) which decided to get 40 F100.
Since 2003, some units of the F100 plane were transformed to planes of a business class and received the name Fokker 100EJ (Executive Jet).
As of the beginning of 2013 in flight operation in airlines there are 148 Fokker 100 planes.
