The RAA provides great data on the US airline industry.  We took a look at the fleet breakdown and created this chart.

is amazing that the 50-seat jet accounts for 59% of operations.  Note that turboprops account for only 15%.  The balance comes from the newer, larger regional jets.

Given the price of fuel and changing economics for regional airlines, we expect this chart to see radical over the next five years. We are not alone in this view.
