In addition to its C Series and CRJ Series, Bombardier also marketed the Q-Series (Dash-8) twin-engine, medium-range turboprop aircraft. Over 1,200 of the family have been delivered, with models delivered after 1997 having cabin noise suppression and designated with the prefix "Q".
The aircraft, which seats 50-90 passengers, was developed as the Dash 8 by De Havilland in 1984. The Dash 8 Series was subsequently sold to Boeing, and then to Bombardier which sold it as the Q-400. Bombardier sold the aircraft program assets to De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited in 2019.
