Dash8-Q400

Hey everyone!

Just a small question... What is the recommended and experienced max. distance (NM) for Dash8-Q400 ? Simply is it still recommended to fly this plane around its maximum NM's?

You have 4 different MTOWs, each one with a different range.

Would I want to fly > 1000nm in a Q400?  No.  But in AWS, you can still find pax that do.  I would say, stay to less than 1000nm (with the shortest range model (standard MTOW), but if you really want to serve thin routes over 1000nm, Q400 can do it...

You can run one jet and one turboprop on the same route. My advice to you would be first covering the shortest destinations though. The longer the trip, the lower the profit margin. My advice would be flying 3x or preferably to 4x to very close destinations during the day and a long (~3 hour) flight to west before it is midnight. You will print money this way.

If you as a new player understand why the night flight should be westbound without having to browse the internet that means you will succeed in this game.
