BE1 & J31/32

Sun Aug 18, 2002 2:41 am

What is the range and the standard seating configuration for the BE1?

Also, could a Jetstream 31 or 32 or both fly non-stop between Las Palmas and Casablanca?

Many thanks.

BE1 ill assume is the Beech 1900D?

If so, I believe the B1900D is configured in a one-one configuration and seats 19.

I might be wrong about that though.

Below are links to USAirways Express BE1 (Beech 1900) and J32 (Jetstream 32) aircraft. These are the standard configurations found in all commercial BE1 and J32 aircraft holding 19 passengers.

Sorry - you also asked about the range....

Beech 1900 is 860 Miles
Jetstream 32 is 640 Miles

Below are links to aircraft data:

The range of a BE-1900 with 19 passengers without an IFR alternate is just less than 400 miles. If you add an alternate, then you have to start bumping passengers. The quote of 860 miles would be with full tanks and about eight passengers with their bags.

Aaah of course Ramper....I was just going based on Raytheon's statements...which would be more geared toward an "executive" type configuration, rather than a commuter airline layout.

Besides...who would want to fly 800 miles in a 1900? Gulp.

Hell, I'd cross the Atlantic in one if it had food service and a lav. Gotta love that 1-1 seating.
