Turboprop Private Aircraft
Popular models include: King Air 90/100/200, Cheyenne II, Pilatus PC-12
Combining the low-cost advantages of piston aircraft with the performance and cabin comfort advantages of light jets, turboprop aircraft can travel further, faster and offer more comfort than piston aircraft. Powered by turbine propeller engines, turboprop aircraft can reach average cruising speeds of over 300 mph and have an average nonstop range of around 1,000 miles. Popular for short to mid-range private flights, a turboprop can access runways that are often too short for private jet aircraft making it one of the most cost-effective aircraft for short-service flights. For added comfort, performance and safety most private turboprop aircraft have pressurized passenger cabins and often have a semi-private lavatory. Baggage capacity and luggage storage space is limited.
