Actually Peace Air (from Grande Prairie) flies Pilatus PC-12's (9 seats) into YYC, albeit not to the main terminal, but it's scheduled service nonetheless.

Likewise, Bearskin Airlines flies PC-12's into Winnipeg.

Here at SEA, the smallest i beleive is the Cessna Caravan operated by Harbor Airlines. I think it is kinda cool to see the huge contrast between planes such as the Cessna Caravan and the 777 all using the same airport.

At Boston's Logan (BOS) the smallest planes I've seen are Cape Air's 8-passenger Cessna 402s, with regular service to Provincetown, Hyannis, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. They pull up to the commuter gates at Terminal A, whose regular gates service the Delta shuttle among others. Quite a sight in comparison to a larger jet.

Cape Air Cessna 402s, during summer months they carry up near almost 7000 passengers per month on these 7 seaters.

Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

The smallest plane here at COS are Mesa's B1900s. They serve DEN and ABQ. When spotting they're very hard to miss on the ramp since they park right next to gate 2 between the main terminal and the old WestPac concourse.

What is a commercial airplane?
A plane that you have to "pay" to go up in?

Seriously, I could say an Eagle 150. Its about 5 metres long. It still classifies as a commercial airplane so to speak.

Seriously, you could say any plane. What is commercial.
Be specific.
If you said smallest airline plane, then I could still say a small plane.
The smallest commercial aircraft would be the smallest plane at your airport. Which effectively can be any, just because its not a stand up airline. Doesnt mean its not commercial.

Yes, I agree TAA_Airbus, I was confused also. Any plane that is made could be at your airport and it would be commercial. I am not sure about the smallest plane in RNO.... sorry.

In mid 1980's when deregulation forced Western Airlines to stop flying thier 737-247 on flight between Sioux Falls, SD - Pierre, SD so Mesaba Airlines (now Northwest Airlink) took over the flight with BEECH 99. It was a big adjustment for me from 737 to Beech 99...

Very good, Chris:
I was looking for your post here. I thought you might forget the Big Sky metros or the FedEx caravans. Good job!
