The Dash 8-100 is a pressurized 37 seat twin-engine turbo-prop medium range regional airliner. The aircraft is capable of operations on both paved and unpaved strips and is equipped with self-contained boarding air stairs to provide independence at remote airfields. The Dash-8 is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW120A engines. The engines feature low fuel burns, providing impressive operating metrics for an aircraft in this category.
Summit Air currently operates two Dash-8 aircraft. Both are combi-capable and can be configured either in full passenger configuration or in a manner that would support the transport of both passengers and freight.
