Turbo-Prop aircraft have 1 or 2 gas-turbine engines driving propellers.
Turbo-Prop airplanes are larger than piston aircraft
and can fly at a higher altitude, of up to 35,000 ft. They are ideal for flights of 600-1,000 miles at lower operating costs than private jets.
Turbo-Prop planes can carry more passengers
and cargo than small jets are also able to land at shorter runways than jets. Turboprop can accommodate 6 – 8 passengers in comfort.
