Variants

The Fokker 70 is a narrow-body, twin-engined, medium-range, turbofan regional airliner produced as a smaller version of the Fokker 100.

The Fokker 70 is powered by two Rolls-Royce Tay 620 turbofans placed at the back of the fuselage, with 61.6 kN (13,849 lb) of thrust.

The weight varies from 22,673 kilograms (49,985 lb) when empty to 41,730 kilograms (92,000 lb) at maximum takeoff weight (MTOW).

An airbrake on the 70’s tail section – similar to that found on the BAe 146 – allows it to conform with the 5.5° glide slope at London City Airport.

Its avionics suite is similar to the Fokker 100.
