Keywords: turboprop, aircraft design
This paper presents a novel concept for a highly efficient and ecological propeller driven aircraft. The design combines latest generation of high efficiency turboprop engines with faster ground processes and higher cruise speeds due to lower flight levels at realistic Mach numbers resulting in a reduction of DOC and emissions.
