Technology reminder: a turboprop engine is a gas turbine, jet engine driving a propeller through a speed-reduction gearbox. It has the same efficiency, absence of vibration and low sound disturbance as a jet engine. Turboprop-powered aircrafts are far more advanced than piston-powered planes of the 1950s and 1960s. Propellers are still used because fuel economy and the possibility to land on short runways favors this type of propulsion over jets on certain routes.
