Essential connectivity for everyone
The ATR 42-600S is a STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) variant of the ATR 42-600 which has been enhanced to reduce the required take-off and landing distances, down to just 800M*. Thanks to this upgrade, over 1,000 airports will be accessible by this aircraft, offering airlines new commercial opportunities and providing local populations with simple access to the global economy, healthcare, education and culture.
*70% load factor, on a 200NM mission
Access the most remote areas
Increased regional connectivity
Over 1,000 airports have a runway between 800 – 1,000m long and could welcome the ATR 42-600S. The entry in service of this aircraft will benefit both passengers and airlines thanks to the increased regional connectivity that it will bring.
Why does the STOL matter to remote communities?
In the world of regional aviation, an aircraft is more than just an aircraft. Is it often the lifeline that connects communities and businesses, and the ATR 42-600S (STOL) programme is a testament to this. For thousands of communities worldwide, the need for greater, quicker, more comfortable, and responsible regional connectivity is paramount. ATR has risen to the challenge by delivering low-emission aircraft that offer access to essential services and transport vital goods in a modern and affordable way.
Enter the ATR 42-600S (STOL), a marvel of innovation.
What does STOL mean in aviation?
STOL in aviation stands for ‘Short Take-off and Landing’ and it refers to aircraft that can reduce take-off and landing distances. Their special features and configurations enable them to operate in tight spots like short runways, rough terrain, or places with no prepared landing strips – or all of these at the same time.
Driven by the market’s demand for an advanced, comfortable and low-emission aircraft to serve these challenging routes, the ATR 42-600S (STOL) programme is evidence to ATR’s commitment to ever more responsible aviation, through continuous innovation, with customers’ needs at heart.
The ATR 42-600S (STOL) will be a game changer. With its increased performance and capabilities, it will offer more low-emission connectivity to thousands of communities and businesses and more opportunities for airlines, enabling access to 1,000 airports globally.
The science behind the ATR 42-600S
Unique continuous cockpit innovation for optimal operations
The ATR-600 series’ full glass cockpit provides a comprehensive and ergonomic working environment to the pilots for safe and efficient operations. It has raised the bar in human machine interfaces offering a high level of comfort and demonstrable efficiency gains.
