What is the difference between a Turbo Prop and a Jet? | Private Jet Charter | Jet Hire | Book A Private Jet | Astute Aviation – Jet Sharper

Another huge advantage of turbo props is their excellent STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) capabilities. This means they are able to access airports and airfields with shorter runways, which may be closer to your end destination. The average light or mid-sized jet requires at least a 5,000 ft runway to safely takeoff and land, while some turboprops can safely take off and land with as little as 3,000 feet of runway.

One potential issue that may arise with a turbo prop is that they can’t climb above 30,000 feet – and altitude can play a large role in your flying experience. If the time of year is prone to poorer weather, you may be more likely to experience turbulence at the lower altitudes that a turbo prop flies at. That being said, there is never any guarantee that a jet at higher altitudes won’t experience a bumpy ride  – we all know how unpredictable the weather is! We will always be able to advise on these kinds of things at the time of your enquiry, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions that you may have. 

In terms of luxury and interior, turbo props are definitely no less comfortable and well designed than their equivalent jets, and have more seats than the smaller private jets suitable for short flights. A King Air B200 typically has 7-9 seats depending on the configuration, with a refreshment area and separate toilet.
