Britten Norman Islander

Island Air operates a fleet of 4 Britten Norman BN-2A Islander aircraft. The Islander is a twin engine, high wing, fixed gear, STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) aircraft. Islanders operate all over the world and have an excellent reputation as a real work horse. They can land on short runways where most other aircraft types are not capable (Cat Cay, Walker's Cay and Little Whale Cay).

The Islander carries 7 passengers and their baggage with a payload weight limit of about 1500 pounds. The fuel efficient Islander uses only 30 gallons per hour and cruises at 140 MPH.

* The aircraft operated by Island Air Charters are certified by the FAA and are inspected and maintained according to FAA Part 135 standards.
