Abstract

AT Schiphol Airport the first Dutch airliner to be built since the war is nearing completion. The Royal Netherlands Aircraft Company Fokker, which was responsible for a large number of successful airliner designs in the period between the wars, has designed this latest aircraft as a medium size ‘Dakota replacement’. Called the Fokker F.27 Friendship, it carries 28–36 passengers and a liberal amount of luggage on stage lengths up to 1,000 miles. It is powered by two Rolls‐Royce Dart propeller turbine engines installed in the high‐aspect‐ratio high wing. The advanced design incorporates a number of interesting structural features which contribute to efficient production and economy of operation.
