Turboprop Charter Flights

Turboprop charter flights are excellent for a variety of trips, including quick business trips and weekend getaways for family vacations. Turboprops are the ideal aircraft for all types of journeys because they can comfortably seat six to eight passengers and have a range of between 800 and 3,000 miles, depending on the model.

  • Seats: 5-9
  • Speed:201 mph-461 mph
  • Range: 1088-3775 mi
  • Price: $2,600-$3,185

An Affordable Luxury Travel Experience

Turboprop charter planes are the most economical option for cost-conscious private aviation consumers. Most aircraft in this category are comparable in size and offer many of the modern luxury cabin amenities found in light jets.  Additionally, they're cheaper to operate, ranging anywhere from $2,000 to $2,400 per hour. 

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.

Durability and Comfort

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.

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, as it allows these aircraft to soar above most weather systems.

In fact, until Daher-Socata unveiled the TBM 900 in 2014, the TBM 850 held the distinction of being the world’s fastest single-engine turboprop! In addition to its high-speed cruise capabilities, the Socata 850 carries four corporate executives over an impressive range of 1,500 nautical mil...
