Fokker 100

Fokker’s largest aircraft, the Fokker 100 is a 100 seat jet airliner based on the F-28 Fellowship. Fokker 100 was certified by the United States Federal Aviation Administration as the Fokker 28-0100. The most noticeable difference was the much longer fuselage, which increased seating by 65% from 65 in the original F28 series to 107 in a three-by-two single-class arrangement. Fokker also introduced a redesigned wing for the 100, which they claimed was 30% more efficient in cruise. The engines were upgraded to the modern Rolls-Royce Tay turbofans, while the cockpit was updated with an all-glass instrumentation package (EFIS glass flightdeck). The Fokker 100 features twin fuselage-mounted engines and a T-tail.
