At $1,600 to $2,500/hour in direct operating costs alone, flying a midsize or large cabin jet from New York to Nantucket, or Burbank to San Jose, may not be your most cost effective option. Not when a turboprop can cover the same distance in just a few minutes more, for less than a third of the cost. In “Hop On Prop,” Jim Holcombe and Keith Nadolski detail where and when a turboprop fits the bill – and keeps your flight bills under control. And when it comes to fractional ownership, when is it more cost effective to move to a whole aircraft? In “Simplifying Fractional Equations”, Lee Rohde describes when owning more aircraft can lower your average travel costs.
