There a piece in FG that speculates that Saab maybe interested in entering the 90 seat turboprop market.
|Quoting cmf (Reply 4):|
I'm sure they are looking for another project as the military side with JAS is slowing down and they want to keep the knowledge. That said it would surprise me a lot if SAAB will do this in their own name. Not because they can't find the financing, I'm sure they can, but because they do not like to take those kind of risks.
From my knowledge of SAAB they will happily take a part, possibly large part, in a new plane but I doubt they will take full responsibility.
|Quoting Max Q (Reply 6):|
Hot going to happen...
But SAAB is out of the Turboprop game.
|Quoting Wisdom (Reply 5):|
Then they should ask EADS to sell their stake in ATR to them.
EADS has a disagreement with Alenia on the development of the ATR-92. Perhaps they're afraid that the ATR-92 becomes an ATR-142 someday?
|Quoting Web (Reply 2):|
Whereas ATR has a consistent product line and could stretch the -72 for a 90-seater, Saab could not, making for an uphill battle should they make the attempt.
