The Dash 8 Series 300, which appeared in 1988, was an extended version of the Series 100. The Series 200 went into production in 1995 and an 80-passenger Series 400 was in design. Continuing difficulties prompted government assistance in 1985 and in 1986 the company was sold to Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company of Seattle, Wash, for $155 million. In 1992, Bombardier and the Ontario government purchased the company from Boeing. It is now an integral component of Bombardier's Aerospace Group.
