Dear Captain Keith
I've just discovered I'm flying along with my family on a turboprop and wondered whether you feel just as safe as a passenger flying on ATR 72 as a 747-400... (i've got these two flights coming up shortly). Many of the safety features you mention in your book seem to refer to features present on board larger jet aircraft. I had a frightening experience on a turboprop once and have felt nervous of htese ever since, a problem with the rudder and we had to go back to Guernsey even though we were almost at Bristol (because their Aurigny engineers were based in Guernsey)...
