ATR, a leading turboprop manufacturer, will
participate at the 50th Farnborough International Airshow, from
July 11 to 17, 2016, at Farnborough Airport (FAB), England.
At the event, ATR will showcase an ATR 72-600
aircraft in the colors of the Swedish carrier B.R.A. (Braathens
Aviation) on the static display.
Configured with 72 seats, the
aircraft features new technology such as
the Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) and Localizer
Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV).
Visitors to the ATR static area will also be
able to experience first-hand the latest technological innovations
that ATR has developed.
ClearVision is a wearable head-up display called
SkyLens. Developed by
Elbit Systems, the technology is a first in
commercial aviation. When entered into service, the ClearVision
system will substantially increase performance at both take-off
and landing, particularly in conditions of very poor visibility,
thus contributing to the enhanced versatility and efficiency of
the ATR aircraft.
Virtual Reality view goggles will
allow visitors to look and feel the new interior, specifically
designed by ATR for North American customers. The virtual jet
bridge will help “passengers” access the aircraft cabin by the
front door. Visitors will be able to “walk” through the cabin and
experience brand new seats. The new cabin features a 3-class
seat configuration - first, business, economy.
Another Virtual Reality experience will showcase the new Smart
Galley concept. This new technological upgrade will demonstrate
the potential of an increased storage capacity, greater
operational flexibility and innovative design thanks to galley’s
quick and easy reconfiguration without the need to return the
aircraft to the manufacturer to perform the conversion.
ATR will be at Chalet #B25.
