How much does it cost to charter a turboprop?
Turboprop charter planes are the most economical option for cost-conscious private aviation consumers with charter rates beginning around $2,000 an hour. Most aircraft in this category are comparable in size and offer many of the modern luxury cabin amenities found in light jets.Are turboprops better than light jets?
Turboprops are considerably more fuel-efficient compared to their turbojet counterparts and have exceptional short runway performance, which provides convenience and saves on the cost of fuel. Though this doesn't make them better than light jets, it does make them a great option for short-haul flights.
While turboprops are built for durability and utility, many models boast modern, comfortable cabin layouts that will impress even the most discerning business traveler. Spacious interiors allow passengers to stretch and relax during longer flights. While baggage capacities in turboprop charter planes typically hover around 50 cubic feet, some models, like the Cessna Caravan, have optional belly pods that greatly increase storage.Can a private pilot fly a turboprop?
Yes, of course. The majority of turboprop charter planes feature a twin-engine design, however certain models like the Swiss-made Pilatus PC12 and Socata TBM 850 use a single-engine. Most turboprops fly at a service ceiling of about 25,000 to 30,000 feet, however, many of the King Airs can achieve a cruising altitude of 35,000. This provides an additional element of safety and comfort for pilots of every calibre, as it allows these aircraft to soar above most weather systems.
