Tis the Season for Turboprops

With summer right around the corner, many travelers will find themselves needing short-hop flights (60 minutes or less) to and from their favorite vacation destinations.  

Turboprop aircraft is the best solution for these quick flights as they have excellent runway capabilities, ample luggage space and cabins, and not to mention, are also very economical. Although top speeds on these aircraft are slower than jet aircraft, turboprops are a better option because jets don’t have the time to climb to their optimal elevation and reach their true speed performance, anyway, because of the short flight time.
