The Saab 340 “American Eagle” is a two-engine turboprop passenger aircraft designed and initially produced by a partnership between Saab and Fairchild in 65:35 ratios. Under the initial plan Saab built the aluminium fuselage and plastic vertical stabilizer, and also performed final assembly in Linköping, Sweden while Fairchild was responsible for the plastic wings, empennage, and wing-mounted nacelles for the two turboprop engines. After Fairchild ceased this work, production of these parts was shifted to Sweden.

Within the 65/35 Saab - Fairchild partnership split Saab was responsible for the fuselage, fin and final assembly, while Fairchild was responsible for the wings, engine nacelles and empennage. The two companies selected the General Electric CT7 (a commercial development of the T700 which powers Sikorsky's S70 series of military helicopters) to power the new airliner. The resulting SF340 design was launched in September 1980 with the aim of capturing 25 to 30% of its market. The American Eagle flew for the first time on January 25, 1983.
