Did you know...

  • The Saab 340 & 2000 have carried more passengers than there are Americans.
  • Metal bonding covers over 40 percent of the structure, which is bonded with up to 4 layers. This allows optimization of skin thicknesses and provides exceptional resistance to fatigue and cracks.
  • Although production ceased in 1999, the average Saab 340 is still only at half of its design life.
Fatigue testing on static test aircraft exceeded 200,000 cycles (takeoffs and landings) or 75 years of typical regional operations
