Fairchild Aerospace Merlin IVC

Overview

The Merlin IVC has a redesigned cabin to make the cabin length shorter by moving the lavatory and vanity area forward to occupy the last three feet of the passenger area. The front of the passenger area opposite the airstair accommodates a 30 cu.ft compartment for coats and briefcases. Typically ten seats are arranged in a double club fashion with provisions for two single benches facing the aisle. The Merlin IVC is powered by a pair of Allied Signal TPE331-11U-60 turboprop engines rated at 1,100 shp each. Engine inspection interval is 5,400 hours.
