The UT series of aircraft is an old yet reliable design of transport used by the TSC for efficient movement of materials to different locations. The UT Mark One B is a modified version of the original platform dating back 52 years (This design was quickly replaced due to complaints about stability when banking). To meet the demands of the brief presented here the aircraft equipment storage bays have been replaced by 96 cloth backed seats (easy to clean, miscellaneous used vinyl seats from the failed Duna Transport Program are available). If there is a serious consideration from Kerbal Express Airlines in the use of this aircraft, additional modifications or the use of later, more efficient platforms can be discussed.
Disclaimer: Please Note this aircraft has not passed any of the KAA aircraft safety regulations. Vinyl suggested for easier blood removal. Moreover, we are not responsible for any loss of life caused by excessive wing flex when performing heavy pitch or roll actions.

The Space Company Presents: The "Grizzly" Super Transport Civilian (ST-3 Civilian)
Class: Jumbo Jet
Take-off speed 50-60m/s
Cruising Altitude: 3000m
Cruising Speed: 225m/s
Fuel Capacity: 18314kal
Consumption Rate: 1.68kal/s
Estimated Range: 2453km
Seating Capacity: 284
Flaps can be used to slightly reduce take-off speed and or assist landing.
We are proud to show yet another modified military transport design for use as a commercial airliner. The ST-3 is a tried and true platform that suffers only minor penalties when converted to a civilian design*. Its 8 large duel rotor design engines allow for easy use at any fuel, passenger, or cargo loads. Following conversations with our engineers, we felt we should do some form of safety testing using this aircraft. Thus, in the case of a failure of the wing structures of the aircraft a safety structure is in place to allow the aircraft to land using only two of its eight engines.
Emergency safety structure in action:
Disclaimer * Conversion to civilian design has caused a minor stability issue under moderate to hard turns. This can potentially culminate in the loss of either one or both wings of the aircraft. It should be noted however the aircraft has a built-in safety backup allowing the aircraft to land with only two engines.
