Having a private jet is expensive. Not so much on the purchase side, but the cost to fly and operate one is very expensive. Even with the introduction of light jets, operators are still spending north of $1000 per hour to operate these smaller jets.

The value preposition of Turboprop aircrafts makes more sense on the cost savings. A turboprop aircraft is propeller driven, but also uses a single jet engine. And in many scenarios, these aircraft can perform just as well as light jets in their climb rate and cruise speeds. Turboprops also tend to have better capabilities than small list jets. The best part is you get it all at a fraction of the operating cost. In this video we check out 5 of the best turboprops you can buy in place of a jet.

So it can land on any runway, any surface like grass, and has a large door in the back for cargo?

There's only one turboprop with jet-like performance, and that is the Piaggio 180 Avanti. The cruise speed is 390 kt. How did you forget that?

Slight correction on the Evo. I own one. It’s ceiling is 28K. I’ve enjoyed mine but I’ve had it on the market for over 2 years, now. There is only 1 company currently insuring them and we’re getting BENT OVER to do so. Being an experimental and with a fleet size under 80 or so, it’s annual premium is right up there with my 2007 PC-12/47. Probably one of the main reasons I’ve been unable to sell mine.

If you want to leave some Citations or other jets behind you, go for a Piaggio P.180 Avanti

Beautiful planes. I would feel safer with a prop plane for some reason. Knowing the operating cost is lower, I would definitely go this route....in my next life

We have an old King Air at my job. We call it EL Chappo.

FWIW: If I had the $$$ and wanted a single-engine turboprop, I would go for the PC-12. The STOL capability is a feature I would WANT....

Basler BT-67 - The vintage lines of yesteryear, the modern turboprops of today, the avionics of tomorrow. A retrofitted and revived DC-3 is almost a low altitude private jet. DC-3 then, DC-3 now, DC-3 forever.

I'll take a TBM 940 and a King air 350i. While I'm wishing on a star I might as well as get a Beech craft starship with upgraded avionics.
