The TRJ Series will be built and certified at a new commercial production facility in Turkey using significant investments by SNC.
The Dornier 328 is a turboprop-powered commuter airliner. It was initially produced by Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH, which in 1996 was acquired by Fairchild Aircraft and renamed Fairchild-Dornier. The Dornier 328 was produced at the company’s plant in Germany and sold worldwide from its Texas, United States, offices. Fairchild-Dornier also undertook the Fairchild-Dornier 428JET program to develop a 44-seat regional jet.
SNC is privately held by Turkish born U.S. business man Fatih Ozmen and wife Eren. The company is developing a spaceplane named Dreamchaser.
