    Charters in São Paulo: Aircraft Turboprop

    Aircraft classified as turboprop receive this nomenclature because of the engine model they are equipped with, which can be single-engine or twin-engine. They are agile, comfortable and safe planes, ideal for operations on unpaved tracks or short slopes. This feature makes this model highly used for transfers to small airports, such as coastal cities and country towns. For example, the São Paulo-Angra dos Reis Flapper’s shared flight happens with the Grand Caravan 208 single-engine turboprop.

    Light jets are commonly used in business travel. The short air-bridge, with a maximum of 2 to 3 hours of duration, makes this model ideal due to its comfort and efficiency. The models in this category are not equipped with large cabins, such as heavy jets, still they have ample spaces that guarantee a comfortable trip to their passengers.

    The mid-sized jets are the balance between comfort and efficiency. Larger than light jets, but smaller than heavy jets, these types allow their passengers to find ideal alternatives to go on longer journeys by a reasonable price and maximum comfort.
