  • On May 18th, regional jet manufacturer ATR announced its plans for the next generation

  • of its best-selling family of regional aircraft, the ATR "EVO," due to enter service by 2030.

  • The next generation of aircraft will feature a new powerplant with hybrid capability and

  • improvements in performance, economics, and sustainability.

  • The new eco-design will include new propellers, upgraded systems, and an enhanced cabin.

  • The aircraft will remain a two-engine turboprop that can run on 100% Sustainable Aviation

  • Fuel (SAF).

  • The Toulouse-based company ranks as the world's number one regional aircraft manufacturer

  • with customers in over 100 countries worldwide.

  • Stefano Bortoli, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, highlighted the potential of the new

  • generation to reduce emissions worldwide, saying:

  • Our next generation of aircraft will be a step forward in responsible flying through

  • further incremental innovation.

  • When it enters the market, the new ATR 'EVO' will pave the way towards a decarbonised future

  • for aviation."

  • ATR currently provides several models of its turboprop aircraft to regional carriers across

  • the globe and is striving to lead the charge toward decarbonization.

  • The manufacturer recently reaffirmed its focus on lowering maintenance costs and emissions

  • in the Asia-Pacific region, where it maintains a significant presence.

  • ATR will achieve cost-saving through a 20% lower fuel burn and a 20% overall reduction

  • in maintenance costs.

  • The aircraft will also feature improved performance in terms of time to climb and an enhanced

  • cabin, which will utilize lighter bio-sourced and recycled materials.

  • Fabrice Vautier, Senior Vice President Commercial at ATR, highlighted the benefits to regional

  • airlines saying that carriers will be able to serve thin routes more profitably, and

  • communities can benefit from more connectivity, more essential services, and more economic

  • development.

  • "Our aim is to continue to offer customers and society ever more inclusive and responsible

  • air transportation.”

  • Vautier said.

  • While its a segment that maybe isn't as closely watched as narrowbody and widebody

  • commercial jet markets, it appears that the competition to design and build the next generation

  • of efficient turboprops is starting to heat up.

  • Embraer's new project to develop a turboprop is reportedly moving very well, at least according

  • to the company's CEO, Francisco Gomes Neto.

  • The Brazilian manufacturer could make a final decision on its newest aircraft by the end

  • of the year with Neto saying that his company is now in the phase of defining a supplier

  • for the aircraft, adding: “We are doing tests already with the concepts,

  • so it is moving very well.

  • Furthermore, we expect to be ready to make a final decision on the business case by the

  • end of the year, beginning of 2023.”

  • Better known for making regional jets, Embraer is looking to move in on ATR's territory.

  • Its new turboprop could have a range of a bit more than 800 nautical miles (around 1,481

  • kilometers).

  • While this is less than the current range of the ATR 72-600, Embraer aims to make the

  • aircraft faster and will have a quieter cabin due to its rear fuselage-mounted engines.

  • Are you excited for the next generations of regional turboprops?
