    F-28

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a pitbuilder that is building a F-28 Friendship?
    Or anything like it.

    Thanks

    I don't even know what kind of airplane that is? Is it a fighter? I am building a T-38 pit.

    Fokker F-28 "Fellowship",, sorry the Friendship was the turbo prop F-27.

    An 85 passenger twin turbojet (Regional).

    It was very popular a few years ago but I hear it was a real gas guzzler and you don't see them much anymore.

    Ahhh ok, thanks. I am not surprised now that hadn't heard of it. I don't try and keep up with airliner type aircraft.

    Good luck with your project. I can understand your problem. As far as I know, I am the only T-38 pit builder.

    Fokker F-28 Fellowship, loverly little airplane, i use to fly on KLM's fleet once every 2 weeks, always seat 1A, so quiet you could hear a pin drop.

    Are you building the classic cockpit version or the glass cockpit version? Keep your eyes on Ebay, usually a few parts on there.

    I might be getting a few F-28 parts from a friend. Hopefully a throttle quadrant and pedastal .
    If that comes about , I will probably start plans for one.

    A glass cockpit is what I was thinking because it seems like it would be a lot easier and cheaper than the analog guages. I'm not sure if the F-28 ever fllew with a glass cockpit but I don't think I would be that fussy. It would probably turn out to be more of a generic twin engine jet cockpit.
    Probably part 737 and part F-28.

    Anyway,, I'll have to see what happens in the planning stage.

    ever thought of building the fokker 70/100 ? (f28's follow up)

    There is quite a few F100 builders here and also some excellent F100 flightmodels.

    Very clean all glass cockpit, so quite a bit easier to build than the F28.
