ATR Approved For Unpaved Russian Runway Operations

ATR has received approval for new generation ATR aircraft to operate from three more unpaved runways in remote parts of Russia. The Russian Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) delivered the approval in June.  The certification allows ATR aircraft to operate from gravel, dirt and grass strips and now brings the total number of runways approved for use and operations to four - Mys Kamenny, Lensk, Bodaibo and Igrim.
