Info of ATR72-500
The aircraft design is inspired from a high-wing, twin turboprop aircraft optimized right from the start for efficiency, operating flexibility and passenger comfort.
The operational weights comply with the new regulations increasing the standard passenger weight and provide the ATR 72-500 with a maximum range of 890 Nm or an out and return trip of 420 Nm (without refueling), both being at full passenger payload. The ATR 72 secondary structures are extensively made of corrosion-resistant composite material. In addition, the ATR 72 innovates by the use of carbon fiber for its outer wings and a composite tail, thus reducing weight further.
One of the current and future challenges faced by airlines is controlling fuel costs. ATR offers the best solution for regional transport aircraft. This success is a tribute to the talent of a company that continuously strives for excellence in a never-ending quest for improvement and innovation.
