ATR develops its onboard operational software offer for iPad

The European manufacturer of turboprop aircraft ATR continues to deploy its support offer for air operations with the development of its onboard Single-point Performance Software (SPS) computation application for the iPad. 

This software, available at Apple Store, allows ATR pilots to compute their take-off and landing parameters in real time and conditions, and also to edit, sign and send their weight and balance sheets. The development of this software for the iPad is part of the aircraft manufacturer’s initiative to meet the new demands of airlines which are now in favor of using the iPad as an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB).

SPS is currently available for operators of ATR -500s and -600s. The weight and balance modules will progressively be available for all the versions of the ATR aircraft.  

In addition to this development, ATR is also looking to enable the installation of the iPad in the cockpit in “class II” mode. The installation, optional and also available in retrofit, will have a mounting arm and electric-power supply via USB.

In line with ATR’s EDORA project, aiming to bring full digitalization of the operational documentation, ATR has also integrated the development of a software allowing to check files in .xml format. ATR evaluated also the expansion of its service offer available for iPad devices.
