Short report for a short flight, direct from LYS to STR in a small almost "private" plane.

Check in is only at the airport at the desk which is the really last one at the terminal 2. it opens 1h before the departure of the flight but this is far enough to check in all passengers (18) the go through the security and board.
Noted on the boarding pass that no toilets are available on board!

Boarding is operated today by bus.

Twinjet runs unusual routes but very convenient, using very small aicraft such as the Beechraft for today's flight. According to what I know they only utilize this type of aircraft.

This is a very small 18 seats plane which is operating by 2 pilotes and sometime 1 steward, but not today

All crew members (the 2 pilots) are very friendly and take care of you as well as luggage. All luggages have to be loaded in the plane since there is no rack in the cabin and you can only store small bags under the seat in front of you.

Very tiny cabin with a 1x1 configuration,

Safety instruction were given directly by the captain, coming within the cabin and explaining briefly what is required before taking off

This aircraft is very noisy and I strongly recommend to wear a noise canceling headset for all the duration of the flight, it can be also very cold by the emergency windows.

Since we had no cabin crew tonight the Captain told us when we were allowed to go the the galley, on the back of the plane to take some drinks and snacks. help yourself.

You can realy enjoy take off and landing since you have a direct view of the runway through the cockpit directly from you seat since there is no divider between the cabin and the cockpit.

Conclusion

Overall a very pleasant flight, un commun, with a great crew team in an almost private plane with only 18 seats. Basic service but very efficient and convenient. That's definitly an experience but a good one if you are not scared by very small aircrafts.

    Thanks for an interesting look at an aircraft you don't see very often. I've often seen Air Canada Express' 1900s around Pearson, but have never had the chance to fly one. I think, while not a great experience, it would be an interesting "box to check." I love the self-serve drinks and snacks approach. And the ability to watch takeoff and landing through the front windscreen.

    Pet peeve of mine -- Airlines with "jet" in their name that operate props. See also, Canada's own WestJet Encore, with its fleet of Q400s. I refer to them as WestProp.
