Active Noise Suppression On ATR Dash 600s

Thu Aug 11, 2011 3:12 am

Does anyone know of plans by ATR to install a Q400-like noise suppression system on the new -600s?

I would think it'd be a good thing from a competitive perspective.

ATR don't mention anything like that on their website, and they would if an active noise control would be installed. So most probably the answer is "no".

I've been on a fair number of Q400s but never an ATR42 or 72 of any variety. What's the noise level like on these types?

I can't tell you the exact numbers (although I would know whom to ask). But they aren't too bad. It is noisy in the propeller plane, the rest of the cabin is quite ok.
