For maximum efficiency, turboprop airliners are best flown at 725 km/h or less due to the velocity of the propeller. This makes turboprops perfectly suited to short haul flights, and many aviation enthusiasts insist on turboprops for short distance flights for the unmistakable authenticity of the experience. Typically turboprop interiors are quite intimate, making it the perfect choice for passengers who want to converse with one another throughout the flight – many short haul business flights are conducted on turboprop airliners.
Turboprop airliners’ power and consistency have helped them become a mainstay in private aviation, proving particularly useful when a short takeoff and landing (STOL) is required, particularly in remote areas. Not all turboprop airliners are small, however, with the Airbus A400M carrying up to 166 passengers when required, showing just how versatile turboprop airliners are.
