The Jetstream 41 was developed by British Aerospace with the prime intent of competing in the 30-seat regional market. Using the Jetstream 31 model as the basis for design, the company made full use of newer technologies in engines and body stabilization. The first Jetstream 41 took flight in September 1991 and entered official service the following year with a delivery to Manx Airlines. By 1996, the Jetstream 41 had gained a firm position in AI(R) consortium and entered service for numerous airlines

worldwide including Brindabella in Australia, Sky Express of Greece, Morgan Jet Mexico, Eastern SkyJets of the UAE, Eastern Airways in the UK, and Trans States Airlines in the US to name a few.

The Jetstream 41 features a stretched fuselage with 16 feet added aft the wings and 8.3 feet to the forward. In addition, the wingspan was increased to 60’5” with newer, improved ailerons and flaps to improve handling. Finally, for increased power and payload capacity, two Allied Signal TPE331-14 turboprop engines power the aircraft and is controlled by an EFIS. This became the first turboprop ever to be certified for both FAR25 and JAR25. In addition, it features an advanced five-blade propeller system designed by McCauley.
