Turbo Prop Aircraft

kingair350

When looking at private jets for shorter journeys, a turbo prop aircraft is ideal for business and personal use. Combining twin propellers and turbine engines, Turboprops have a greater fuel efficiency than their jet engine counterparts. Not only are these aircrafts more fuel efficient, turbo planes can fly from more locations, including small airports with rougher terrain.

The propeller design has increased their flexibility to reach more remote locations, allowing them to reverse, slow down and land on runways as small as 600m. The only compromise is the lower cruising speed, yet this is still 340mph.

As one of the lightest aircrafts available for private charter, turbo props are perfect for short to mid-range flights, travelling around 1,500 miles and have an average flight time of 2-3 hours.
