Turbo props are well known for their high performance. They have powerful twin propellers engines that range from 200 to 400HP. Smaller than traditional aircraft, turbo prop planes carry between 5-8 passengers and are designed for shorter flights from 2-4 hours.
Their small appearance belies the actual room inside, which is spacious enough to comfortably seat a pilot and five passengers. Easy to maintain, turbo prop interiors can be transformed within 30 minutes to suit passengers or cargo as necessary. Adaptable to many environments, turbo props offer a wide range of paneling such as standard, cargo, and executive, as well as standard and amphibious floats and snow skis for Arctic environments.
Lightweight and easily maneuverable, turbo props are becoming increasingly popular for short commuter flights for their flexibility and fuel cost savings. The pitch of propellers can be reversed in turbo prop aircraft to slow down the plane as it lands. This feature enables turbo props to fly in and out of short and rough runways between 2,000 and 2,400 feet. Hence, turbo props are ideal for traversing smaller airfields in both urban and rural areas, which cannot be accessed via typical larger aircraft.
