The ATR 72 is a twin-engine turboprop, short-haul regional airliner developed and produced by aircraft manufacturer ATR, a joint venture between Aérospatiale (now Airbus) and Aeritalia (now Leonardo S.p.A.). The aircraft received its name after the seating configuration, which was to accommodate 72-78 passengers. The ATR 72 was able to take-off from shorter runways, which was achieved by reducing the weight of the wings, utilising carbon fibre construction. The powerplants chosen for the aircraft were twin Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100s, powering four- or six-blade propellers. The ATR 72 was utilised in a variety of roles, these include passenger or corporate transport, cargo/freight transport, and maritime patrol operations.
