WestJet Encore Fleet Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 Details and Pictures. WestJet Encore operated 47 Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 (De Havilland Canada DHC-8-400). The Q400 is a twin-engined turboprop aircraft manufactured by the Canadian company Bombardier. The “Q” in the name stands for “quiet”, because the noise and vibration suppression system (NVS) neutralises a large proportion interior and exterior noise, making the aircraft one of the quietest in its class. This aircraft type is also environmentally friendly because of its fuel economy and much lower CO2 emissions than comparable jets. WestJet Encore added the Q400 to its fleet in June 2013.
