Turboprop aircraft are quite capable when it comes to payload and weather. But unlike their skinny relatives in the jet-family our plump turboprops often have to stay in the soup rather than just climb through it. So these aircraft are often understaffed when single pilot operated in adverse weather conditions.
Of course, pilots are well-trained and they think they understand meaning of demeanor and motor. But flying ‘weather’ does not only induce stress into technical systems; it also needs a pilot which is on his A-game. That’s hard. Bleed-air and capable environmental systems stimulate more our complacency than much more needed awareness.
Our two hour workshop will shed some light, what it really means to fly a turboprop to its potential and what a pilot has to expect when doing so. [unordered_list style="arrow"]
