The Fairchild Metroliner II (Metro II for short) is our second smallest aircraft, capable of transporting up to 12 passengers per flight. With a cruising speed of 300 mph, and a range of 1100 statute miles, the Metro II is a smaller, more cost-effective version of the larger Metro III. And just like the Metro III, the smaller Metro II is fully capable of flying into short gravel runways in adverse weather conditions.
