If it was long enough ago it was a Metroliner seating 19 passengers with no flight attendent.

UAX into Fresno? No UAX/WestAir operated the EMB-110 Bandit as a 19 seater. Interesting aircraft with bench seats.
|Quoting FATFlyer (Reply 12):|
One key then is the year. Skywest took over in 1997.

Was it really that late?
|Quoting Markabcan (Reply 13):|
are certainly still in operation though throughout the world!
|Quoting AJRfromSYR (Reply 18):|
Just checked the Saab website, looks like its still in production.
|Quoting AerospaceFan (Reply 3):|
But I guess I never counted on the effects of the decibel level, and when the time actually came to take a trip aboard a turboprop, I found that the sound level was just way too uncomfortable. Didn't anyone think to make earplugs available?
|Quoting Markabcan (Reply 8):|
Yes the ATR series is still in production and actually doing pretty well!
|Quoting Saab2000 (Reply 21):|
Three things conspired to kill the Saab 2000.
|Quoting AerospaceFan (Thread starter):|
Does anyone know if some of these ancillary airlines are updating these "puddle jumper" (i.e., around 20 to 30 passenger, turboprop) aircraft, and if so, what the latest models are?
|Quoting Markabcan (Reply 2):|
Eventually those route will probably be replaced by smaller regional jets like the Embraer 135.
|Quoting IRelayer (Reply 22):|
Only turboprops in production right now (excluding Russian models) are the Dash-8 series and the ATR series
|Quoting AerospaceFan (Reply 30):|
Eek! Sorry about calling them "puddle jumpers". No offense is meant.
I have a fondness for all kinds of aircraft, so the term is meant in the same good-natured spirit.
|Quoting IFly4UAL (Reply 31):|
Oh no offense taken whatsoever...just a personal opinion. And obviously you have a fondness for aircraft since you're a member of the site (and a new member at that!) Welcome aboard!
|Quoting Tornado82 (Reply 29):|
I thought the EMB-120 was still in production too?
