Airplane with propeller, Wide look of; Propeller Planes
We can say that the use of aircraft started with a propeller in the history of aviation. Propeller planes, which were originally produced for personal use, agricultural works and mail distribution, have been used for cargo, passenger transportation and military purposes, as their size has grown over time. We can give models such as Boeing Stearman PT-17, Huff-Daland Duster, Stearman C3B, Travel Air 4000 as examples of small size and propeller models.
These planes, or some more advanced ones, were being used for training and survey.
Until the 1930s, Stinson A and Stinson T, Travel Air S-6000-B, Lockheed 5C Vega, Lockheed 8A Sirius and Lockheed 10 Electra models could be considered as examples. In the 1940s, the famous Douglas models DC-3, DC-4, DC-6 and DC-7 carried the aviation industry to a different point. Again, Convair 340 and Convair 440 for this period and Lockheed Constellation and Curtiss C-46 models in future years were always propeller aircraft.
For the 1960s and 70s, we can say Fairchild-Hiller FH-227B and Lockheed L-100 models in the Turbo Props category.
Propeller aircraft did not remain on the pages of history. Existence of civilian usage requests, especially for short-haul, regional flights or destinations with few passengers in the 80s and later,
has led companies to produce propellers or turbo props models. Cargo and military use demands of propeller aircraft continued as in previous years./p>
Let's look at some of the propeller aircraft brands and models that are still known today or continue to fly in the sky.
