We are looking for whether or not you fly single or dual pilots for your turboprop ?
Did you change from Dual to single pilot and if so how did you transition your staff?

For Canada:

Twin Turboprop, dual pilots for all dedicated medical FW aircraft in Alberta, Yukon, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec and as far as I know Ontario, Manitoba and New Brunswick. Only Saskatchewan Government still flies SPIFR on twin Turboprops.

Pretty much everyone in Canada flies dual pilot/dual turbine for ALL dedicated medical carriers (FW and RW)

We have a whack of PC-12s flying in Ontario, in the good old days it was all twins, but now most of the SOA fleet is Pilatus, as well as most (and soon to be all) of the Ornge owned fleet (the number I heard is we bought somewhere around 10 of them, but that number changes depending on who is moving their lips).
