The D328eco™ is the first step in combining today's advanced technology with yesterday's heritage, offering, by 2025, a more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly aircraft to the market.
The D328eco™, with its innovative eco-efficient and state of the art technologies, will offer an alternative solution within the sub 50-seater regional commuter and multi-role aircraft market. A vital tool to promote regional economic growth. It is ideally positioned to explore new and under-served routes, as well as accessing remote locations without the need of sophisticated infrastructure.
Our design includes a number of features that will enable our aircraft to expand to new heights and improve regional transportation access via sustainable means.
Optimized for higher propulsive efficiency and low noise, they will work together with the engine to ensure the D328eco™ remains one of the most economical turboprops within the regional and special mission markets.
Fully compliant with REACH manufacturing processes and regulations (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of CHemicals), to meet more sustainable objectives.
The D328eco™ Flight Deck is designed for future single pilot operation, with latest generation avionics suite. This will enable greater operational efficiency and ensuring full compliance with all known future CNS/ATM regulations.
The Pratt and Whitney Canada PW127S engine, more efficient and will allow better performance increased SHP to support the increased MTOW. The maintenance service goal will improve while the operating cost is reduced.
The D328eco™ is nearly 2 meters longer than the original D328® airframe to provide additional seating capacity and enhance the proven multi-role capability of the aircraft. Seating 40 passengers as a standard configuration. The new cabin design will offer increased health and safety capabilities while allowing standard trolleys on-board.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) compatible airframe to lower the carbon emission and help reduce our carbon footprint.
The D328eco™ builds on the D328® superior field performance. The improved landing gear coupled with a gravel kit allows access to unmade runways and austere environments.
Recognised by major operators all around the world for its unique versatility and as a category leader in field performance the D328® platform is one of the most adaptable regional aircraft, providing opportunities to access new and remote locations.
Able to operate on any type of surfaces: grass, gravel, ice or even sand, the D328eco™ is equally unafraid of hot and high conditions. From regional cities to far-flung outposts or from the Arabian Desert to the Himalayas, the 328-series will take you (almost!) everywhere.
The D328eco™ will equal the outstanding field performance of its ancestor, offering even more power & payload to extend the range of missions’ possibilities. The aircraft is capable of reaching up to 30,000-feet service ceilings. This ability allows the aircraft to access less crowded upper airways therefore reducing fuel consumption and allowing longer missions.
