Can turboprop freight conversions prevent a glut of used passenger aircraft?, Issue 16 Apr/May 2001

There are about 1,100 turboprop freighters in service. These operate for major small package carriers, various postal services and independent airlines. Many are now more than 30 years old, and small package traffic is growing at about 20% per year. This is expected to stimulate the conversion of more than 800 aircraft in the next 10 years.
