Note: This is a sub-section of Handley Page.

The Handley Page HP.137 Jetstream is a small twin turboprop airliner, with a pressurised fuselage. The aircraft was designed to meet the requirements of the United States commuter and regional airline market.

After the bankruptcy of Handley Page, the design was purchased and produced by Scottish Aviation at Prestwick and later after Scottish Aviation had been incorporated into British Aerospace from 1977.

The design was improved and built by British Aerospace (BAe) as the BAe Jetstream 31 and BAe Jetstream 32 featuring different turboprop engines.
