      Depends if they get the route. It is tryiny to test whether the States will protect their airline and keep the monopoly or allow Le Cocq's on. Suppose it would be operated with an Islander or Trislander. To be honest I don't know what aircraft they have nowadays, Noel Hayes seems to be leasing so many different aircraft at the momemt.

          A dash 8 or ATR 42 would be too big and uneconomical for inter island though I would like them to acquire a similar type of aircraft in the future Maybe base it at Jersey as a home airline because the aircraft cannot get into Alderney and by hell they wouldn't consider Guernsey, and then operate destinations in France or the UK.

            Modern turboprops would not be viable for such short sectors with so many start cycles.

              That is where the shed, dear I say it, has done us proud, wysiwyg! Just imagine the Saab on inter island cost wise

                Exactly. The only turbine that seems to endure the number of cycles are the various forms of PT6 (as in the shed, twotter, etc.).
