ATR-600 Series Aircraft Earns Russian Approval
Russia’s Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) has granted certification for the ATR 42-600 and ATR 72-600 to operate in Russia and the Community of Independent States (CIS).
The certification includes approval for the new full-glass cockpit avionics suite for ATR’s 600 series aircraft, which IAC “deeply examined,” the company said.
“This is a significant milestone for our company and our Russian customers, and we are pleased that we have fully complied with the high standards of IAC's requirements. We are convinced that this certification will open up new commercial and operational perspectives for ATR -600 series aircraft in Russia and CIS markets,” said Carmine Orsi, senior vice president of engineering at ATR.
ATR received EASA certification for all of its 600 series aircraft earlier this year, and has more than 50 ATR aircraft operated by customers in Russia and CIS.
