China may launch development of a new 19-seat turboprop to help small regional carriers expand services to remote areas of the country under newly established Part 135 regulations.

Interesting. If the could make it transport catagory and overcome some of the short comings of the Beech (blasphemy, I know) and the J31/32, I wonder if we could see a slight revitalization of the 19 seat market.

I would think something like a slightly smaller Saab 340B might work, or perhaps like a smaller DeHaviland Dash-8 (which has stellar field performance).

Why 19 seats and not 30? I didn't know the 19 seat market existed anymore.

its more likely they will go after the STOL market with a follow on to the semi-succesful Y-12. Maybe a slightly bigger, pressurized aircraft with amenities (aka lav). Since the Twotter ended production, there hasnt been much in the way of a real utility liner produced, and much of the existing Twotter/EMB-110/Y-12/Islander/Metro fleet is getting a bit long in the tooth... The B1900 and Jetstream series have never really been suited for the "hillside, ice and beachfront" world that many of the others operate in on a daly basis.


Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

19 seaters will always have a market. If over 19 seats teh airport has to have crash fire and rescue. MOST of the EAS service cities in the US do not have this requirement. Thats why 19 seaters is all that you will see in these communities.

The Let L410/420 is still in production.

Exceptions confirm the rule.

Not that it can match the DHC-6 exactly, but is the CASA 212 still being built?

Not to mention anything over 19 seats needs to have a Flight Attendant...
