I'd find addressing the worldwide aging fleets of aircraft that seat between 30 - 60 to be more interesting.

Truthfully, I'd like to see someone do a new 19pax (max without a flight attendant) prop as well.

The vast majority if not all people that worked on it are gone. A lot of new learning will be needed to pull off another turbo-prop. From about 2007...
