ATR 42 Improving Package

On January 23rd, 2017 Michael G Ubisch wrote an article for FlightGlobal talking about how ATR is planning to improve the ATR 42. They plan to do this by increasing the capability of operating from remote airfields.

Christian Scherer, the chief executive of ATR, is planning to work on manageable modifications that would accommodate for a 50 seat aircraft to operation on runways.

The improvement will also include a more light and effective carbon brake which is already been put in ATR 72-600.

With this expansion, Scherer is looking beyond. Here’s what he has to say.

“This opens, in theory if you look at a world map, whole bands of currently uncharted territory [for potential aircraft operation],”

ATR hopes to offer this package to potential customers with the help of its shareholders, Airbus and Leonardo.

Scherer also says this:

“We know we have a technical solution. If we find launch customers for this particular version, I will go the shareholders and ask for the development.”
