Saunders ST-27A


Saunders Aircraft Corporation in Canada flew the ST-27A prototype (CF-FYBM-X) for the proposed ST28 on 18 July 1974. The ST-27A was a lengthened fuselage conversion of the de Havilland D.H.114 Heron with turboprop powerplant, but production ST-28s were intended to be newly-built; because of financial problems no series aircraft were manufactured. Saunders Aircraft Corporation produced 13 completed ST-27s.




The Heron has been stretched by 8 ft 6 in (2.59 m) to carry 24 passengers, and re-engined with two PT6A-27 turboprops instead of four Gipsy Queen piston-engines.
