Fairchild Metroliner III
A safe, fast, and efficient commuter aircraft
The Metroliner is also a very versatile aircraft and has seating for 19 passengers. Used by Air Chathams since 1992, this aircraft can also be operated as a freighter with a maximum payload of 2 tonne.
Fast as well as reliable, the Metroliner is flown by two pilots, is pressurised and can be flown above the weather. It has a great range and with full fuel this aircraft can fly for over 6 hours. The Metroliner is a great choice to charter for remote locations and family groups.
Air Chathams has three Metroliners with the Auckland to Whakatane route using the Metroliner as our passenger aircraft.
