How scary is the flight from Panama City to David?

I know this may seem like a silly question, but my wife is REALLY not a fan of small turboprop plane rides where turbulence jostles the plane, especially going over mountains.

A quick look at the map indicates the flight would be over either flat land or water which could mean less turbulence, but that doesn't really address her concerns.

Does anyone have experience on this flight?

That flight is usually done on a F 100 - it's a regular jet (Air Panama is getting the cast offs from Copa Airlines). The turbo prop plane is the one that flies from David to San Jose, CR (now that was a wild ride!).

She should have no worries. Have fun.

No problem with the David to San Jose flight. Very smooth & comfortable flight.
