Aircraft Background Edit

The Britten-Norman Islander is a small twin prop aircraft produced at Bembridge airport on the Isle of Wight. It has sold more then 1250 worldwide since its first flight in 1965 and is still being produced today.

There have been a couple of variations derived from the basic airframe. The first is the Defender which is a militarised version of the Islander. One such operator of this is the British Army, for whom it is their only fixed wing aircraft. Another variant is the Trislander, a stretched 3 engine version operated by a number of small airlines.

The Islander itself has gone through a number of versions, with the current ones being the BN2B and the BN2T.

The islander is popular with airlines operating out of small airports due to its small size, although it has also found popularity in UK police air support units not assigned helicopters.
