Piston aircraft are typically the smallest types of planes that are available for charter. Typically, aircrafts of these type only have a 5-passenger capacity and can only hold limited baggage. Piston aircraft are ideal for cozy 1-hour flights.
These types of planes don’t have the same amenities, lavatories, and galleys as larger planes. However, piston aircraft still provide an efficient and comfortable ride. These are ideal for having comfortable flights within a short period of time.
Here are two of the aircraft that belong to the piston group:

Cessna 172, 182, 206, 210, 310, 340, 402, 414, 421
