Turboprops combine speed and utility for a variety of missions.
Ready to go farther and faster than your light single or twin can take you? A wide range of turboprop aircraft stand ready to support a multitude of roles, from personal and business trips to medical and public safety missions. With the reliability of a turbine engine driving a propeller, these aircraft marry speed with capability, and require a bit more training to master. Manufacturers such as Daher, Pilatus, Epic, Piper, and Textron Aviation create new models, and a number of turboprop mods are available for classic aircraft such as the de Havilland Beaver and Otter.
