Favorite Single Engine Turboprop

Sun Sep 24, 2006 12:10 am

Hey all,

I just recently flew right seat in a Cessna 208B Grand Caravan. Absolutely loved it! Even got to fly it for a while. Just wondering, though, what is your favorite single engine turboprop? For me, it is the 208B, of course...

My first choice would be:

PC12 as I had the joy of taking a flight with it.

Cheers,

Mmmmm......, a turbofan is but a multi-bladed propeller.

I think the Pilatus PC-21 looks like an awesomely sleek and fast aeroplane  bigthumbsup . Definitely gets my vote!
