The British Aerospace 146 (also known as BAe 146) is a short haul airliner and a regional airliner that was manufactured in the United Kingdom
by British Aerospace, later part of BAE Systems. Production ran from 1983 until 2002. Manufacture of an improved version known as the
Avro RJ (Regional Jet) began in 1992. The BAe 146/Avro RJ is a high-wing cantilever monoplane with a T-tail. It has four turbofan engines mounted on pylons underneath the wings, and has retractable tricycle landing gear. The aircraft has very quiet operation, and has been marketed under the name "Whisperjet". The BAe 146 comes in -100, -200 and -300 models. The equivalent Avro RJ versions are designated RJ70, RJ85, and RJ100.
With 387 aircraft produced, the BAe 146/Avro RJ is the most successful British civil jet programme.
