JC Wings diecast model JC2BCA537 (XX2537) replicates in 1/200 scale the Short 330-100, registration G-NICE in Genair’s British Caledonian commuter services livery, circa the early 1980s.
Genair was a British commuter and charter airline, established in 1980 by General Relays (Crewe) Ltd. During 1980 Genair absorbed Eastern Airways and Casair to become Britain’s largest commuter airline. Simultaneously, close links with British Caledonian saw Genair using British Caledonian colours with British Caledonian Commuter/Genair titles. Genair was placed into receivership in July 1984 and wound up.
The Short Brothers Short 330, also known as the SD3-30, is a British twin-engine turboprop, short-haul regional airliner. It first flew on August 22, 1974, entering service in 1976 with Time Air.
Based on the smaller Short SC.7 Skyvan with longer wings and fuselage and more powerful engines. Manufactured in several variants, including a freighter and a military variant, the Short C-23A and B Sherpa with a rear loading ramp, production of all variants ended in 1992 with 141 built.
The airframe is all metal, mainly of aluminium alloy. The unpressurised square-sectioned fuselage is of semi-monocoque construction. The brace monoplane wings are a high aspect ratio, shoulder-mounted with a Twin finned tail assembly. A retractable tricycle undercarriage is used. The flight crew consists of two pilots and passenger cabin seats up to 30 passengers.
It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A turboprop engines, one under each wing, driving five-bladed Hartzell propellers. They give the Short 330 a cruise speed of 300 km/h (180 mph), a service ceiling of 6,100m (20,000 ft) and a range of 1,695 km (1,053 mi).
