Development

Fokker 50

The Fokker 50 was designed after sales of the Fokker F27 Friendship, which had been in continual production since 1958, were beginning to decline by the 1980s. Fokker management, notably Frans Swarttouw, decided that an aircraft with aerodynamic and electronic updates from both the Fokker F27 and the Fokker F28 (the short-range twin jet for 85 passengers) was sensible.

Fokker 50

Certification of the Fokker 50 (initially known as the Fokker F27 Mk050 or Fokker 50) by the Dutch aviation authority RLD was successfully completed in 1987 after four years of design review and flight testing. First delivery was made to DLT of Germany. Production ended in 1996 after the Fokker Aircraft Company went into liquidation. By the end of the program, 213 Fokker 50s had been produced. In 2005 a majority of these were in operational service and in August 2006 a total of 171 Fokker 50 aircraft remain in airline service. Major operators include: Malaysia Airlines (10) (now operated by Maswings and Firefly), Denim Air (12), KLM Cityhopper (14), Skyways Express (18) and VLM Airlines (20). Some 27 other airlines also operate smaller numbers of the type.[1] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 533 pixelsFull resolution (2977 × 1984 pixel, file size: 318 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Other versions Image:Fokker 50 on Reykjavík Airport. ...

Fokker 60

The Fokker 60 is stretched 1.62 metres longer than the F50 for a total length of 26.87 metres. It has a large cargo door on the right side immediately behind the cockpit. Only four planes were built, all of them delivered to the Royal Netherlands Air Force. All of them were part of 334 Squadron based at Eindhoven airbase (EIN/EHEH). They were used to transport equipment and soldiers. Paradrops were done as well. Another 60 was under construction, but was never completed due to Fokker's bankruptcy. Two of the Fokker 60's (U-01, U-03) were converted in 2005 to MPA aircraft as a temporary solution when the Royal Netherlands Navy P-3 Orion were phased out due to budget cuts. They were stationed at Hato AB Curaçao, until they were replaced by civil DHC-8 aircraft in October 2007. When the Royal Netherlands Air Force decided to buy two extra C-130's the Fokker 60's were phased out. The last flight of a 'normal' Fokker 60 was made in November 2006. Currently they are stored at Woensdrecht airbase and are up for sale. Roundel of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. ... This article is about the Royal Navy of the Netherlands. ...

Design

The Fokker 50 was based on the stretched F27-500 airframe, but with a larger number of smaller windows in the fuselage and a two-wheel nose gear. The fuselage can be short, and seemingly unaerodynamic, as in this Christen Eagle 2 The fuselage (from the French fuselé spindle-shaped) is an aircrafts main body section that holds crew and passengers or cargo. ...


Basic construction of the fuselage, wings and empennage (tail) remained unchanged apart from strengthening the various sections where required. The wing was equipped with upturned aileron and wingtips, effectively acting as wing endplates or winglets. Empennage is an aviation term used to describe the tail portion of an aircraft. ...

The major design change from the Fokker F27 was in the engines, and in equipping the aircraft with an electronic flight and engine-management system. The original Rolls-Royce Darts in various marks of basically 1700 to 2300 HP was replaced with two more fuel efficient Pratt & Whitney Canada PW124 powerplants of max 2500 HP each, driving a 6 bladed Dowty Rotol propeller.

Compared to the Fokker F27, the Fokker 50 can carry up to 62 passengers over a range of 2,000 km (1,243 mi, 1,080 nm) at a typical speed of 530 km/h (329 mph, 286 kts IAS), a 50 km/h (31 mph, 27 kts) increase over the Fokker F27.

Fokker 50 Aircraft Facts, Dates and History (319 words)
The Fokker F50 was a small, turboprop-powered airliner designed as a refinement of and successor to the highly successful Fokker Friendship.
Fokker management, notably Frans Swarttouw, decided that an aeronautical and electronic update of both the F-27 and the F-28 (the short-range twin jet for ca 85 passengers) were in order.
Around 50 passengers can be carried over 2000 km at a typical speed of 530 km/h, a 50 km/h increase over the F-27.
Fokker, A living history - Fokker 50 (1623 words)
Fokker therefore realized that if its 'new F27' was to be a success, it too would have to introduce new technology.
Fokker's objective was to make passenger comfort on the Fokker 50 as close as possible to that of larger jets.
Customer reactions to this philosophy are reflected in the Fokker 50 orderbook which shows quite a number of airlines which do not limit the use of the word 'quality' solely to their advertising campaigns.
