Aircraft

Q400 - Taking Flight Fall 2014 

The newest addition to our fleet is the Q400 NextGen aircraft, built by the Canadian aerospace and transportation company, Bombardier Inc.

Facts

With a cruising speed of 360 knots (414 mph) the Q400 travels inter-island at speeds comparable to jet aircraft and is similar to a typical 737 in size. Thanks to proprietary technology, the passenger cabin of the Q400 is the quietest, most vibration-free turboprop aircraft flying today. Its outside noise is actually much quieter than a jet. The Q400 is also one of the most environmentally friendly planes available, requiring less fuel and producing far lesser emissions than similar sized jets.
