De Havilland name returns

Early June saw Bombardier complete the sale of the Dash 8 programme to Longview Aviation Capital. Longview now manages production of the Dash 8 Q400 programme and support activities for the in-service fleet of legacy Dash 8 family aircraft through a newly established subsidiary called De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Ltd. The sale to Longview, announced earlier this year, is part of Bombardier Inc’s wider divestment of commercial aircraft activities. The company previously sold its fire-fighting aircraft programme to Longview (whose Viking Aircraft unit manages that programme). Mark Broadbent
