The eight-seat Cessna 208 Caravan lifts off a runway on Southern Airways Express’ inaugural Jackson-to-Nashville flight on Monday.The single-engine turboprop plane heads to the Tennessee capital, with a brief stopover in Memphis.Takeoff from Jackson International is 9:03 a.m. The plane climbs to 9,000 feet and reaches cruising speed of about 200 miles per hour. The ride is smooth, though noisy. Earplugs, which are shown the airline’s website, are recommended.The plane touches down in Memphis at 10:09 and taxis up to the Signature Flight Services Center, which was converted from the original Memphis Municipal Airport terminal built 80 years ago. Smaller executive terminals are a selling point of the commuter airline. No big airports with mandatory security screening and waits for claiming baggage. And the flights are quicker and cheaper.
