The aircraft has been delivered in four series; the Series 100 was has a typical seating of 37, with the Series 200 delivered with more powerful engines from 1995. The Series 300 is a stretched, 50-seat version first delivered in 1989, and the Series 400 is further stretched to 78 passengers, first delivered in 1999. Models delivered after 1997 has cabin noise suppression and are designated Q.[4] Production of the Series 100 ceased in 2005, and the Q200 and Q300 in 2009. Bombardier is considering launching a stretched version of the Q400.

Design and development

.In the 1970s, de Havilland Canada had invested heavily in their Dash 7 project, creating what was essentially a larger four-engine version of their Twin Otter, concentrating on excellent STOL (Short Takeoff And Landing) and short-field performance, their traditional area of expertise.^ De Havilland Canada DHC-8-100 Dash 8 .
