Turbo Prop Charters
Turboprop aircraft are ideal for corporate/government charter flights where comfort, speed and safety are primary concerns. They are also widely used in Australia by services such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Air Ambulance, Police, Customs, the Military, mining companies, not to mention most regional airlines.
With their superior performance and safety features, turboprop aircraft are a comfortable and dependable aircraft for short to medium range regional charter flights.
Turboprop Engines and Performance
Turboprop aircraft are powered by a gas turbine (jet) engine which drives the propellor system via a shaft or free turbine. These engines provide much increased reliability, power and performance over their piston counterparts. Bleed air from the turbines also provides superior ancillary systems such as pressuriation, air conditioning and pneumatic de-icing equipment.
The turboprop aircraft generally fly faster than their piston driven counterparts, with speeds averaging 270 kts(500 km/hr). Additionally, the aircraft will generally carry a greater payload, so restrictions on passenger numbers/weights will be less likely. Performance in the unlikely event of an engine failure will also be better than light piston twins.
The pressurisation systems found in most turboprops enable them to climb to higher levels (around 25,000 ft) which is often above the weather where smoother conditions exist.
Turboprop charter aircraft are normally equipped with enhanced safety devices such as weather radar, anti-icing equipment, oxygen, traffic alerting systems and ground proximity warning systems.
