Is it possible for airlines who own the current D328 prop to remove the props and turn them into jets?

Also, will the ATR recieve its own jet version?

No, it isn´t. Airlines can only choose about 4-6 weeks before the aircraft rolls out to convert it into a jet and vic versa.

The jet engines weigh a lot more than the turboprops, and the structure is beefed up to take the extra weight. If you really wanted to, you could probably do it, but it'd make much more economic sense to order one from the factory. I haven't heard anything about the ATR.

They have publically stated they feel there will still be enough demand for the ATR42/72 as is. Hence no plans to develop RJ variant of the type....

Was a big debate on the PlaneBusiness message board a while ago.

Not long ago they discussed the AIR JET againg but as you posted they think that there will be enough demand for the ATR 42/72 what I don´t completely believe. Also you would be a fool to start another 70-seater, currently there are the CRJ700, the ERJ-170, the 728JET and the Avro RJ70, 4 new (except the last) designs all looking for orders. THIS market is very crowded.
