Their commercial fleet also includes the turbine Douglas DC-3TP. This airframe is proven by getting the job done for more than five decades. The DC-3TP is good for shorter haul trips with loads up to 7,500 pounds. It can cruise at 200 mph and only requires runways of 4,000 feet which allows it to service airfields not accessible to many other commercial cargo aircraft.
