Fixed-wing turboprops are regarded as efficient and effective airplanes.
- This plane’s design allows for short take-off and landing ability, potent cruising speeds and greater fuel economy.
- Turboprops are perfect for short trips, seating up to 6-9 passengers depending on the model.
- They also find extensive use as Air Ambulances, where the patient is transported with all emergency life saving equipment and medical staff.
- Due to the use of propellers, turboprops travel at a much more modest speed than jets, but offer the perfect balance of performance and price. Travellers looking to book a quick trip usually use these aircraft.
Manufacturers of Turboprops include Pilatus, Beechcraft King Air and Piaggio Avanti.
