These lucky holiday makers are happy to watch this turbo prop aircraft landing… but for some fearful flyers the thought of travelling in a small plane or one with turbo propeller engines fills them with horror.
A turbo prop engine combines the advantages of a jet engine and a propeller driven aircraft. The jet engine for reliability and the propeller for efficiency at lower altitudes.
A small aircraft is not more prone to bumping around than a big one…although it often feels like it. Remember these facts when you fly in one and make your flight less anxious.
