Regional/Corporate/Utility Turboprop Update for 16-Jan-2017


Updated: 16-Jan-2017 @ 1215

Please note a couple of formatting adjustments:


  • Colour of the title band still indicates aircraft classification, but the colour has been reversed. Blue for larger types from Caravan up, and gold for smaller types than the Caravan.
  • Cessna and Beechcraft of all types are titled "Textron Beechcraft" and "Textron Cessna", which of course alphabetically puts them lower in the report (if you can't immediately find them)
  • The main airport in Toulouse will now read "Toulouse-Blagnac" (it previously was just "Toulouse")
  • The Downsview Airport in Toronto will now read as "Toronto-Downsview, ON" (it was previously just "Downsview")



The photos appearing in this section are linked directly back to the original photograph elsewhere. If you click for the larger version it will open in a new window. More often than not, the location of the photo will be at Flickr™.  While you are there, please take the opportunity to check out some more of the photographers work, there are generally hundreds, if not thousands of great aviation photographs to be seen.

The original photographers have permitted the use of the images here. They cannot be re-posted, or re-used elsewhere without obtaining permission from the photographer directly.


If you have good quality photographs uploaded at any other location (Flickr, Smugmug, A-Net, JP etc.) and want to have them featured in this section, just use the contact form. I will do the rest, no work necessary on your part!
