The Britten-Norman Trislander (more formally
designated the BN-2A Mk III Trislander) is an 18-seat three-engined piston-powered civilian utility aircraft
produced in the 1970s and early 1980s by Britten-Norman of Britain.
The aircraft were made on the Isle of Wight. They were also produced in Romania, and delivered via Belgium to Britain for their certification.
The Trislander is a development of the BN2A Islander and has exceptional low speed handling characteristics, extended endurance, increased payload, low noise
signature and economical operating costs. Capable of taking off from a 450 metre long landing strip, the
Trislander can readily operate from unprepared surfaces.
Britten-Norman currently offers factory refurbished pre-owned Trislanders and the company is also considering
options on future new build aircraft.
