Rent a turboprop with AEROAFFAIRES and enjoy complete flexibility
Turboprops offer not only the advantage of being a more cost-effective alternative to private jets, they are also more flexible when it comes to your destination. Due to their size, they are often able to land at airports with smaller runways or on different terrain. The Britten Norman Islander is no exception and has been used to take off and land on unprepared rough airstrips and challenging terrain. The aircraft is specially designed to tackle short takeoff and landing (STOL) operations. This makes it ideal for flying staff out to remote manufacturing sites, for emergency medical transport (MEDEVAC, etc.).
