Our cabin is designed for reduced noise and vibration to improve the passenger experience
The aircraft is equipped with the “Active Noise & Vibration Suppression” system (ANVS)
The system works like noise-canceling headsets, making our cabin as quiet as the popular jet aircraft operating today
Includes computer activated tuned vibration absorbers which provide out-of-phase counter vibration
Advanced propeller electronic control for precision synchrophasing and reduced noise
System is supplemented by passive noise & vibration reduction from “soft-mounted” bins, acoustic curtains, etc
Our aircraft is one of the quietest commercial airliners in operation today (Outside Noise)
The Dash 8-400 is the only regional aircraft certified to ICAO Chapter 14, the most stringent noise emission standards
The Dash 8-400 has a taller, WIDER CABIN with a flat floor and true business class seating.
Turboprops are the more modern and smarter version of the jet engine. Our aircraft uses the same turbine technology as a jet but replaces an internal turbofan with an external propeller. On our short regional flights our turboprop aircraft is simply the Smarter technology and choice.
