The Jetstream 31 was developed by British Aerospace after the design had first been passed to Scottish Aviation during the nationalization period in the early 70s. British Aerospace had initially declined development of the twin-engine business turboprop but in 1978 decided the design would be an asset to the company’s goals.

The final design of the Jetstream 31 incorporated Garrett turboprop engines, offered options

of either 10 seats for business configuration or 18 for commercial flights, and the ability to land at a majority of airfields. After the initial test flight in 1980, the first Jetstream 31 was delieverd in 1982. The final design has proven to be quite popular with numerous civil operators from scores of nations making purchases for this economic, light commuter aircraft. Among the nations using the Jetstream 31 today are Colombia, Venezuela, Canada, the UK, the US, Australia, Honduras, Estonia, Iceland, Jamaica, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway and more; the list seems endless.
