Multi-Engine Turboprop Performance

Like the single-engine turboprops, the multi-engine turboprops range from utility to executive configured aircraft. Manufactures are in the process of producing more versatile multi-engine turboprops to fit the larger multi mission rolls as we have seen in the single engine market. Aircraft such as the EV-55 and Cessna SkyCourier are just two of the newer aircraft to fit this multi roll mission that are currently undergoing to path to certification with certification expect in 2020.
