BAe.146-200 – a short-haul passenger aircraft developed by the British corporation British Aerospace. It is an extended version of the aircraft BAe.146-100, extended by 2.39 m, in contrast to which it can be operated only with hard-covered runways. The testing of the prototype aircraft began on August 1, 1982. Deliveries began in June 1983. In the United States, the aircraft was certified in June 1983.
Based on a passenger aircraft, a cargo variant of the BAe 146-200QT was developed, which has a 3.3 x 1.98 m cargo door that opens upwards on the left side of the fuselage behind the wing. Due to the reinforced floor structure, cargo weighing almost 13 tons is possible. Cargo options are not built but converted from passenger ones at the American firm Hayes International. There is an administrative version of Statesman, designed to carry up to 30 passengers. In 1986, based on the BAe 146-200 aircraft, British Aerospace designed a modification of the BAe 146-300 with an even longer elongated fuselage.
The aircraft is equipped with a standard avionics system with electromechanical means of information output. It was mass-produced in 1983-1992.
