De Havilland Canada initiated the development of the Dash 8 in 1980 to meet the demand for a quiet short-range transport.  The DHC-8 was the company's first transport not optimized for short take-off and landing.

Bombardier Aerospace acquired de Havilland Canada in 1992 and had more recently re-designated this aircraft the Bombardier Q100 or Q200.

The Series 100, seating 36, first flew in 1983.  The Series 300 was certified in 1989 and seats between 50 and 56 passengers.

The Series 400 is another stretch, this time seating 70 passengers.
