Cruising at a speed of approximately 170 knots (196 mph or 315 km/h), the DHC-6-200 could cover distances of up to 700 nautical miles, making it exceptionally well-suited for regional routes. Its standard passenger configuration accommodated up to 19 travelers, providing a comfortable and efficient means of transportation for passengers in smaller communities.
  • N930MA's history with Eastern Air Lines - Metro Express underscores its pivotal role in extending the reach of regional air travel.
