ABSTRACT
New Technology for New Technology Aircraft

European turboprop manufacturer ATR is the world leader in the regional aviation market. ATR designs, manufactures and delivers aircraft, with its fleet encompassing some 200 airlines in nearly 100 countries. The ATR 42 and ATR 72 are the best-selling aircraft in the below 90-seat category. With continuous improvement as a driving force, ATR produces cutting edge, comfortable and versatile turboprops that help airlines expand their horizons by creating more than 100 new routes every year.

The technological innovation and continuous avionic enhancements of the ATR aircraft requires training to be maintained as a key focus of any operator. In this context and in line with CBT philosophy, ATR has developed smart training tools applicable to latest generation turboprops, addressing specific training objectives for pilots, maintenance workers and cabin crew. Besides cockpit technology, intuitive training applications on dedicated topics such as UPRT, contribute to enhancing training efficiency.

ATR offers to share its views on the above matters and present a demonstration of selected learning tools that are contributing to safety through efficient training.
