Turboprops

For short hops of one to two hours turboprops offer an ideal and economical private charter option. Similar in size to a light jet and more spacious than a VLJ, turboprops provide many of the amenities found in their jet counterparts but at a lower price point. Like jets, turboprops are powered by a turbine engine. Turboprops have an external propeller while jets have their turbine engine encased with fan blades. While turboprops offer cost savings by utilizing less fuel, there is no sacrifice in safety.
