Re: Embraer's has projects for a new turboprop plane [June/2020]

While the ATR has de-icing capabilities, it has issues with icing where other props like the Dash 8 and jets have. Hence is one of the many reasons why US carriers ended up dumping their ATR fleet. The problem with the ATR in the US market is more than a de-icing capability issue, the american mark...
