Whats the Cutout/Port on the LH side [above the 417].
Is it a access port to the Cockpit.How does it look from the Inside.

It looks like an air vent to me.

It's a document door. Used to pass the final paperwork without the agent having to walk all the way to the back of the aircraft, through the passenger compartment, in to the cargo bay, then in to the flight deck.

It's hinged on the bottom and latches at the top.

It's the whiskey hatch  Big grin Used to deliver paperwork to the captain, but also would fit a bottle of whiskey, hence the nick name

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall that Saab turboprops have the same feature.

Edit: yes, they do:  Smile

It seems to me like that hole is still pretty high off of the ground on both a/c, high enough that it would be a pain to pass paperwork through it unless the guy on the ground has a ladder. I know these aren't big airplanes, but that is still up there.

No, not really. The ATR crew hatch sits lower..maybe 5'-0" off the ground. The Saab is a little higher...7'-0". I can easily hand the release to the crew of a Saab 340 standing flat footed..

ATA when overnighting during the summer in MSN (only place I've seen it), would open that door and put a little 4x6 US flag out on each side (of the Saab 340). I think they only do it in the summer though.
