I have been involved in aviation since the year 2000 when I graduated from Flight Safety Academy in Vero Beach, Florida. I became a pilot influenced by my mother, who was a senior cabin crew member for Transavia Airlines Holland.Konstantinos TrovasOver the years I have been flying several airplanes including the C208B Super Cargo Master (as well as the passenger version), several light singles and twins, the Fokker 50 and am now flying the ATR 72, ATR 42 320 and 500 version.Operator-wise I have been flying for Aeroland Airways obviously Minoan Air and am now I am flying ATR for an airline that I am contractually not allowed to mention.The SX-BRV F50So much about me, but now let us focus on the topic of this post: The Fokker 50 is an airplane so advanced for the year that it has been manufactured in, that it still can compete with modern turboprop airliners flying in the years to come.Between 2013 and 2017 I have flown the Fokker 50 and flew it to Switzerland (steep approach Lugano) but also to Sweden, Netherlands, Italy, Austria and even to Congo (with some fuel stops) from Bergamo. The SX-BRV, that the Aviationtags are manufactured from, I have flown in Sweden from Kristianstad to Stockholm Arlanda for a period of time and also to the Greek Island of Crete. View from above. Fokker 50 Cockpit. Up in the air.As opposed to other planes, the Fokker 50 is a very hard and stable aircraft. It handles crosswinds and unpaved runways very easily and very stably. It is a very reliable aircraft with no particular known problems. Very important these days as well is that it is fuel-efficient and a passenger friendly and comfortable aircraft. I had been enjoying flying it. It is a piece of history now and I will remember it for as long as I live.
