How many prop planes in your logbook??

Fri Mar 08, 2019 6:02 pm

My flying experiences started in 1977, so I missed the chance to fly in any type of Douglas/Lockheed/Boeing propliners on a regular basis. My few exceptions were: When PBA introduced service to PGD in the mid 70's, they flew sightseeing flights over Charlotte Harbor in a variety of planes. I caught rides on a Martin 404 and a DC3. I also flew one of their DC3's to EYW from APF. My only other propliner flight was on a Mackey Airlines Convair 340 from FLL to NAS through FPO. What great memories. I'd be interested to know how many a.netters flew regularly during the prop era, and what was the most common/favorite aircraft flown?

My first "prop plane" was a Convair CV-340 with Frontier in 1974, DFW-FSM and FSM-FYV-JPL-MCI. I was only eight years old, but I recall that on both flights that plane vibrated so much I thought all my teeth would fall out.

Everything else started more than a decade later, with my most common route being DFW-FSM, mostly on a Saab SF340 and an ATR-72. I have on my record one Jetstream J31 BFL-LAX (to catch a red-eye), and several Q400's, but nothing on a regular basis.

In Europe and the rest of the world the prop era didn't end - if anything it's coming back with aircraft like the ATR 72-600.

I've done a lot of regional flying all over the world, so have been on a lot of props - way more than 300 sectors in total, or 1 in 3 flights. I have also done a lot of pleasure flights on more unusual types. Some highlights so far include An-12, BAe ATP, CN-235, Dash-7, DC-3, Il-18, Il-114, Short 360, YS-11, plus hundreds of sectors on the Dash 8 and ATRs.

The only prop I've ever flown is the Cessna 172, a flying lesson out of Lelystad. All my commercial flying has always been on jets. Not that I have anything against props, but it just never happened.

I'm too young to have flown during the classic propliner era, but I did get to fly on this one about 2 years ago:



Besides that, the first plane I ever flew on that had propellers was a SkyWest E-120 in 2005:



In total I've logged 4 E-120s, 1 SAAB 340, 1 DHC-2 Beaver, and 1 Cessna 208.

My first prop was a Bombardier Dash8Q-400 in 2013. On the return leg we did have an aircraft change so I also got an ATR72-200. Besides that only a few more ATR72-500 and Dash8 flights. It was only last year, that I booked a flight for the sole purpose to get the chance to fly on a BAe Jetstream41 in Nepal.

I did hqve a booking for Lukla on Twin Otter and Dornier Do-228, unfortunately this was cancelled.

According to my mother we had a flight in the Societ times on a prop, but can't figure, which one exactly as I was a toddler at that time, so I won't count this one.

Are we talking "pilot logbook" or "passenger flight log book"?
I've flown lots of prop planes:

As a pilot:
- Cessna 172
- Diamond Katana, Evolution and Eclipse
- Diamond Star
- Diamond Twin Star
- Travel Air
- Baron 58
- Piper Aztec
- Piper Tomahawk
- King Air 200 (I have the most hours on this, 2000+ hours on type, including 500+ as captain)
- B1900C
- Dash 8-100/300 (my current "day job")

As a passenger:
- Q400 (Air Canada Express - Jazz, Porter, Horizon, Austrian)
- ATR 42/72 (Calm Air, Tarom, Finncomm)
- Saab 2000 (Carpatair)
- Saab 340 (Air Rarotonga)
- B1900D (EVAS, Air Georgian)
- AN2 (Private)
- Lancair 320 (Private)
Superior decisions reduce the need for superior skills.

Embraer Brasilia 120 LAX-PSP and back in May of 2014 (this was a trip that had the fringe benefit of allowing me to add "Palomar Mountain, California" to my List of Post Offices I've Mailed Things From).

Thanks for everyone's interesting replies! I was referring to a passenger's logbook rather than a pilot's logbook. Also, I'm wondering if anyone has any recollections of flying on "true" propliners, such as a Constellation or a Stratocruiser??

All my prop flights were in the late '90s in NZ, before I started keeping flight records. They included a Dash-8, a Saab 340, and a Metroliner. Haven't had one since 1999.

And the distinction between a "true" propliner vs. other propliners is what? Piston engine vs. turbine?

It looks like I've actually flown only on turbine-powered equipment:
An-24 (operated by a variety of airlines, in a variety of versions, including An-24RV -- this one apparently contains additional APU in the right engine pod; we joked that we have extra jet engine power here)
An-140 (only twice, same frame, same airline, there and back)
Fokker-50 (several times)
ATR-72 (once)
L-410 (several times)
DHC-8 Q400 (a couple of times)
Saab-340 (several times)
Saab-2000 (once)

So, no piston airliners for me, yet. I've apparently narrowly missed An-2 at least a couple of times, as a kid -- both times, there was an equipment change to An-24. This must have made my parents very happy -- I was fairly often airsick, and it was fairly bad on Tu-154, got worse on Tu-134, and yet worse on An-24 -- so the smaller the plane, the worse it was. And An-2 had a reputation of being a bit of a "vomit comet" even for people less sensitive, then me -- so parents rightly worried that my situation would be plain desperate on an An-2.
(On a separate note, my eternal gratitude goes to L-1011 TriStar -- my first and only flight on one was a cure for airsickness for me. I wasn't airsick on that flight, for the first time. And 25 years on, it's still good.)

Most flights I take are turboprobs (usually Q400, sometimes Q300 & ATR72). The only planes that currently operate to my home airport are Dash 8s and Fokker 100s.

Joy of living and travelling regional:
Q400 (Qantaslink, Ethiopian, many others)
Q300 (Qantaslink)
Dash 8-200 (Qantaslink, others)
Dash 8-100 (PNG Air)
Fokker 50 (Estonian Airlines)
Beechcraft 1900D (Air New Zealand)
Saab 340 (Rex)
BN2 Islander (Lady Elliot Island, private)
Cessna 172 (private)
Cessna 208 Amphibian (charter)
Beechcraft Super King Air (medical)
DC3 (charter)

Probably alot more, as I fly a bit of GA. Booked on DHC-6 in Madagascar later this year and will be on either a LET 410 or a Cessna 404 in the Comoros.

Only been on props twice in my life and both going to Himalayan foothills...
2005 CCU IXB (heading to Darjeeling and then Sikkim)
2012 KTM PKR (Nepal) both on ATR42 (I think!)

just checked the Kolkata Bagdogra sector and there are now 3/4 airlines and all these new flights are A320 or 737 Max :O
If that's not aviation revolution....

Did your MA-60 also crash shortly after you flew it?

There's always gotta be that one person :roll: - they're all flying just fine.


Actually that's incorrect. I have absolutely nothing against flying rare and unusual types, quite the opposite - I have flown hundreds and actively enjoy flying rare equipment, however one of the two MA-60s I flew crash landed quite spectacularly a month or so after my flight on it. As there are so few MA-60s, I was tongue-in-cheek wondering if you had been on the same one.

DeHavilland/Bombardier Dash 8
ATR-72 (just recently flew on one of these in India)

Cessna 150
Cessna 152
Cessna 172
Cessna 182
Aerospatiale Tampico
Diamond DA20 Katana

Wait a minute, who would've operated that LAX-PSP flight for United? It would've been a regional and not mainline, am I right?

One, the ATR72.

Not my best flight to be honest. On the way back there were mild turbulence all the way from SIN to SZB and I got airsick. Only the fact that I didn't have lunch kept me from hurling!

Been on many on scheduled flights, mainly the ATR72 including internal flights in Lao and Myanmar (though not curiously the ATR42)

ATR72 8 flights (XK, QV, LH/EN, FY, YH)
F50 (MH)
S2000 (F7)
EMB120 (DL/OO)

However by far my most exciting turboprop ride was a sightseeing flight over the Namibian desert in a Cessna Caravan. Especially as I had been seated in the co-pilot seat! Really weird to be sitting there, seeing the control stick moving in front of me etc

The plane V5-GPX happily still seems to be operating in Namibia!
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

Ah, interesting!

My bad for guessing you were just one of those who'd jump on the MA60 is unsafe bandwagon. My apologies.

The airlines I flew were Helitours (Sri Lanka Air Force, they've kept it clean so far), and Cambodia Bayon Airlines (they've cancelled all their flights so far, fair to say they've probably grounded their planes to prevent one) ....
