“The Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander is a British light utility aircraft and regional airliner that has been in production for more than 55 years. It was developed in 1963 as a simple and inexpensive twin piston engine aircraft that emphasised payload over range and cruising speed, given its low wing and span loading. The design brief also encompassed ease of access to remote locations within the short haul sector” (Business Air News, 2021).

The BrittenNorman Islander aircraft have been in operation for over fifty-five (55) years, according to BrittenNorman (2021).
