Short SD3.360 / 360

short360


The 360 is a growth development of the 330 with more power, and a three foot stretch ahead of the wing and a redesigned rear fuselage and tail surfaces. An extra six seats (in two rows) were accommodated by stretching the cabin and deleting the 330's rear loading ramp, and the tail arrangement was changed to a conventional single fin.

The prototype 360 flew on 1 June 1981 and the type entered service in December 1982. First introduced with Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-45R engines, the Shorts 360-300 version has 1,424 shp (1062 kW) PT6A-67R turboprops with six-bladed propellers and other refinements to produce about 18 per cent more thrust at take-off.

164 examples were sold up until 1991.
